Competition: Junior 2 League Phase 2
J2 V Highfield
Score: 9 - 8 (Con score given first)
Venue: Templehill
Date: 27/01/2017
Referee: S.Tydings MAR
Report:

Cork Constitution defeated Highfield by the narrowest margin in the third game of the Junior 2 League Phase 2, under lights at a rain-sodden Temple Hill on Friday evening.

 

No.8 George French gave Highfield a great start with a 5th minute unconverted try. However, Constitution hit back immediately with a penalty on 8 minutes by Simon Barry; and Barry kicked a second penalty on 20 minutes for the half-time lead at 6-5.

 

The weather deteriorated in the second period, as heavy rain made the conditions very difficult for continuity. And scoring chances were thus limited to a 51st penalty by Darragh O’Keeffe for Highfield, and a third penalty for Constitution by Robin O’Flynn that proved to be the winning points.

Cork Constitution FC J2 V Dolphin 13/11/2016

Competition:Junior 2 League
J2 V Dolphin
Score:5 - 20 (Con score given first)
Venue:Templehill
Date:13/11/2016
Referee:Mossie Keith MAR
Report:

Dolphin scored three tries to Constitution’s one at Temple Hill on Sunday morning to take the Junior 2 League points on offer.

 

Dolphin were on top in the first period and led 17-0 at the break. However, while Constitution had somewhat the better of the second half exchanges, their only reward was a try by Doug Abbott. And an unfortunate injury to Gavin Brooks in the second period did not help Constitution’s cause.

 

It was a disappointing outcome, having already defeated Dolphin in the Dennehy Cup in September. The result leaves Constitution in fourth place on 10 points, with two wins and two losses.

Cork Con Team:

Donal O’Sullivan; Dave Hayes, Niall Melia, Conal Murphy, Eoin Murphy; Gavin Brooks, Peter O’Riordan; Doug Abbott, Darren O’Connell, Stephen Randles; Michael Coughlan, Cormac Fouhy; Shane Mohally, Eoin Derham, Rogan Gee. Replacements: Joshua Ho, Gordon Good, Olan Murray, Cilian O’Connor, Kevin Minihane.

Score:28 - 8 (Con score given first)
Venue:Templehill
Date:23/10/2016
Referee:S.Donaldson MAR
Report:

Cork Constitution J2 XV recorded a bonus point win over Muskerry at Ballyanly on Sunday in the J2 League. However, though leading 18-3 at half-time, they had to endure a strong second half by the home side before emerging with the points.


Dave Hayes scored the opening try for Constitution in the 7th minute, while Muskerry opened their account with a penalty four minutes later. Eoin Derham doubled Con’s advantage with a try on 16 minutes for 10-3. 


Skipper Cormac Fouhy demonstrated the finer art of place-kicking with a penalty for Constitution on 27 minutes for 13-3. And Ryan Flanagan scored a try just before the break for 18-3 at half time.


Centre Niall Melia scored two unconverted tries in quick succession for Constitution midway in the second period, to put the game beyond the home side at 28-3. However, Muskerry did score in the final play, when their right winger got in at the corner for an unconverted try.

Cork Con Team:

D.O’Sullivan; D.Hayes, N.Melia, C.O’Sullivan, H.Murphy, D.Leung, P.O’Riordan; D.O’Brien, J.Tyner, R.Flanagan; R.Gee, C.Fouhy; S.Mohally, E.Derham, M.O’Mahony. Replacements: J.Ho, D.O’Brien, M.Coughlan, C.O’Flaherty, C.Browne.

Competition:Dennehy Cup – Final
J2 V Highfield
Score:19 - 6 (Con score given first)
Venue:Model Farm Road
Date:18/09/2016
Referee:Claudio Dona MAR
Report:

Cork Constitution J2 XV won the Dennehy Cup on Sunday morning at Model Farm Road against the host club.


The match was played in a constant drizzle making accurate play difficult, but Constitution made light of the conditions to lead 12-6 at the interval. Tries by scrum half Billy Pope and Harry Murphy, and a conversion by Simon Barry had Constitution well in command by the break. And a second half try by Barry Glavin, converted by Barry, sealed the victory, as the home side struggled to make any scoring impact.


Eamon Dennehy was on hand to present the trophy sponsored by his family, to Constitution captain Cormac Fouhy, for the second year in succession.

Cork Con Team:

D.Hayes; B.Galvin, M.O’Mahony, H.Murphy, D.McDermott; S.Barry, B.Pope; C.Parkes, G.Good, D.Abbott; C.Fouhy, R.Gee; D.Fitzgerald, R.Hyde, R.O’Halloran. Replacements: D.O’Connell, G.Brooks, K.Daly, C.Murphy, P.O’Riordan.

Cork Constitution FC J2 V Dolphin 11/09/2016

Competition:Dennehy Cup – Semi-final
J2 V Dolphin
Score:23 - 21 (Con score given first)
Venue:Musgrave park
Date:11/09/2016
Referee:D.Orde MAR
Report:

Cork Constitution J2 XV finally got their season underway at Musgrave Park on Sunday morning with an exciting win over Dolphin in the Dennehy Cup semi-final. They had received a first round walk-over from UCC last week.

 

They started well on the pristine back pitch at Musgrave Park and had built a 13-7 lead by half-time. However, Dolphin fought back to take the lead in the third quarter, and then in a dramatic final ten minutes Con went ahead, only to concede again with just five minutes remaining, but in the last play, Olan Hanley drew the sides level at 21 points apiece, and Simon Barry performed the coup de gras with the winning conversion.


Simon Barry had all Constitution’s points in the first period. He kicked a 10th minute penalty to open the scoring, and on 20 minutes latched onto a grubber kick by Olan Hanley for a try at the posts. The conversion, and a further penalty in the 35th minute, had Constitution thirteen points to the good. However, Dolphin pulled back seven points just before the break with a converted try by their No.8 from a 5 metre scrum, to leave the half time score: Dolphin 7 Constitution 13.

 

Dolphin had the better of the third quarter taking the lead in the 65th minute with a second try by their No.8 at the posts, leaving a simple conversion for a 14-13 lead. Simon Barry restored Con’s lead again in the 75th minute from a penalty, but from the re-start Dolphin scored and converted for 16-21.

 

However, Constitution had the final say, when Olan Hanley scored, and Barry’s conversion put Constitution into the final, in which they will meet Highfield who defeated Cobh Pirates 21-6 in the other semi-final.

Cork Con Team:

O’Hanley; S.Grey, H.Murphy, G.Brooks, D.Hayes; S.Barry, P.O’Riordan; C.Parkes, G.Good, D.Abbott; C.Fouhy, R.Gee; K.Daly, D.Fitzgerald, R.O’Halloran. Replacements: D.O’Connell, E.Murphy, S.Mohally, O.Murray, C.O’Riordan.
