St Munchin's battle with PBC for place in Schools Junior Cup final 

St Munchin's Kieran Ryan finds a gap in the St Clements defence during their quarter final meeting

ST MUNCHIN’S College will look to book a first Clayton Hotels Munster Schools Junior Cup final appearance since 2009 when facing PBC, of Cork, in their semi-final tie later today.

St Munchin’s and their Cork opponents will face-off at UL 4G rugby pitch at 1.30pm, after their last four fixture was switched from Tom Clifford Park on Monday.

It is now 20 years since the Corbally side won a Junior Cup title, with that successful side featuring former Munster centre Barry Murphy.

St Munchin’s College reached the semi-finals with a runaway victory over St Clement’s College on the back pitch at Thomond Park in their quarter-final fixture.

The Corbally side’s backroom team includes Garryowen scrum-half Neil Cronin and Young Munster hooker Ger Slattery.

The second semi-final between CBC, of Cork, and Bandon Grammar School takes place at Cork Constitution FC also on today, Wednesday, at 2pm.

The final of the Clayton Hotel Munster Schools Junior Cup is due to take place on the week beginning Monday, March 5.
