Barry Galvin scored in the 25th minute following a neat switch of play by Jack McHenry, and Eoin Lacey converted for 19-0. Lacey scored an unconverted try on 33 minutes, before Eugene Redmond got Dolphin on the board with a penalty in the 37th minute. 24-3 to Constitution at half-time.


In the second half, Sean O’Leary got over from a line-out drive, for an unconverted try in the 57th minute. Dolphin, to their credit, kept going despite the deficit and were rewarded with a try on 71 minutes when wing Luke Moloney touched down in the left corner, and Rob O’Halloran kicked an excellent conversion. 


However, Constitution got the final score when replacement Sean Gray scored an unconverted try in the 80th minute
