A 12th minute penalty from Keelan Daly set them on their way, before front row Luan Diego Paduano scored the opening try in the 26th minute, following a maul near the goal line. Dolphin hit back just before the interval, when winger Daniel O’Connor scored an unconverted try in the left corner.
In the second period, Dolphin lost a great chance with a missed penalty in the 60th minute, before centre Daniel Lucey scored a try in the 68th minute for the home side. Daly converted, and added a penalty on 73 minutes to secure the points for Constitution.Referee:
