Cork Constitution J2 XV recorded a bonus point win over Muskerry at Ballyanly on Sunday in the J2 League. However, though leading 18-3 at half-time, they had to endure a strong second half by the home side before emerging with the points.
Dave Hayes scored the opening try for Constitution in the 7th minute, while Muskerry opened their account with a penalty four minutes later. Eoin Derham doubled Con’s advantage with a try on 16 minutes for 10-3.
Skipper Cormac Fouhy demonstrated the finer art of place-kicking with a penalty for Constitution on 27 minutes for 13-3. And Ryan Flanagan scored a try just before the break for 18-3 at half time.
Centre Niall Melia scored two unconverted tries in quick succession for Constitution midway in the second period, to put the game beyond the home side at 28-3. However, Muskerry did score in the final play, when their right winger got in at the corner for an unconverted try.
