Venue: WoodviewCompetition: U21 SW Conference
Cork Constitution overcame the challenge of Thomond at Woodview on Saturday with a five try bonus point win. Taking the initiative from the outset, they led 15-0 at half time, and although conceding 19 points in the second period, they still had 15 points in hand at the end.
First half tries from James Sullivan (two) and Dylan Mullins gave Constitution a comfortable half time position, but Thomond showed their spirit in the second period with a strong comeback. However, two tries by Cian McGovern, both converted by Sean Og Murphy who also kicked a penalty, left Con well in control at the finish.
The victory leaves Constitution with 19 points after five games, two ahead of UL-Bohemian and Garryowen, though the latter have a game in hand.
