Munster made it two wins from two in the U-20 interprovincial series when recording a resounding 22-8 victory over Leinster at the Mardyke on Friday last.

Munster led 9-3 at half-time, thanks to two penalty goals from Bill Johnston, of Garryowen, and one from Young Munster full-back Dave O’Mahony.

A second half-try from Shane Daly, of PBC, inspired the home side to an impressive win.

Meanwhile, both Munster U-19 and U-18 Club sides recorded wins against Leinster and Connacht respectively in their interprovincial fixtures at CIT at the weekend.

The Munster U-19 side made it two wins out of two in the interprovincial campaign as they came from behind to defeat Leinster 26-18.

Jack O’Donnell, of Ardscoil Ris and Shannon, scored one of Munster U-19s four tries, while out-half Conor Fitzgerald, of Ardscoil Ris, kicked three conversions.

The Munster U-18 Club side bounced back from their defeat to Leinster in Dublin to record a 29-3 victory over Connacht at the CIT Grounds.

Waterpark’s Alex Molloy scored three second half tries as Munster pulled clear after the break. The sides had been level, 3-3, at half-time.
