Cork Constitution U20 XV lost heavily to a strong Shannon outfit at Templehill on Saturday. At half-time they trailed 0-19 as a Shannon mauled over for three tries. And while they tried valiantly, they never looked like challenging Shannon’s supremacy as the Limerick side went on to record an emphatic win.


Constitution have won three and lost four, and have two games remaining against Garryowen and Newcastlewest in the next two weeks.

Constitution Under 20 XV lost their Donal Walsh League tie to UCC at The Farm on Saturday afternoon. Trailing 12-3 to College at half time, they left it late to get to get in a serious challenge. However, they fought to the end and a last minute try was no more than they deserved for an honest effort.


College took an early lead from a penalty try in the 10th minute, to which French added the conversion. And they added a second unconverted try in the 18th minute, when the pack mauled to the line with Declan Barry touching down. Niall Finn kicked a penalty for Constitution in the 38th minute to leave his side trailing 3-12 at the break.


The second half was well contested but scoring was at a premium, and it was Constitution centre Joe Harrington who finally crossed for a try in the 78th minute; however the conversion attempt went wide, to leave College as narrow winners.

Competition: McMullan Cup Semi-final
U20 V University College Dublin
Score: 0 - 42 (Con score given first)
Venue: Templehill
Date: 25/03/2017
Referee: C.Harrington MAR

University College proved a tough handful for the Constitution Under 20 XV at Templehill on Saturday, in the quarterfinal of the All-Ireland McMullan Cup. 


Played before the All-Ireland League tie with Garryowen, College scored two tries in a very competitive opening half to lead 10-0 at the break.


College dominated the second period going on to score another four tries, without reply from the home side.


The pace and accuracy of the visitors was just too hot to handle for a very game home side, who never gave up, but were just outgunned by their opponents.

Competition: Under 20 - Donal Walsh Trophy Final
U20 V Garryowen
Score: 6 - 20 (Con score given first)
Venue: Templehill
Date: 25/02/2017
Referee: C.Harrington MAR

Garryowen turned the tables on Cork Constitution in the final of the Under 20 Donal Walsh Trophy at Templehill on Saturday. Despite Constitution winning a 30-21 victory in their first match in November, on this occasion Garryowen were always in command. They scored the opening try in the 12th minute, led 6-14 at the break, and went on add two penalties, as they snuffed out anything that Constitution could muster.

Constitution missed an early penalty chance, while Garryowen took their first real opportunity when prop Niall Campion was driven over from a 5 metre line-out. And Peter Collins added the extras for 0-7 after 12 minutes. Eoin Lacey pulled back six points for the home side with penalties on 24 and 32 minutes, but Garryowen took the interval honours with a try in the right corner by Shane Mullins. And an excellent conversion by Collins gave Garryowen a 6-14 lead.

Two early second half penalties by Collins pushed Garryowen to 6-20 by the 48th minute, and thereafter, despite a reasonable amount of possession, the home side were unable to breach the visitor’s tight defence.
