Cork Constitution scored an easy victory over Kinsale in a one-sided Munster Junior Cup 2nd Round tie at Kinsale on Sunday afternoon.

Gary Bradley finished off a fine handling attack from half way in the 20th minute; converted by Niall Finn; and James Murphy drove over for the fourth try from a fine line-out take by O’Flaherty, to leave the score  0-22 at half-time

In the second half, Constitution were again quickly off the mark with a try by hooker John McHenry, converted by Finn. And in the 50th minute, Bradley put flanker Murphy in for his second try, converted by Finn for 0-36. On the hour, Gary Bradley nipped in for his second try, and Evan Mintern closed out the scoring with a strong run-in from 20 metres in the 67th minute.
