There was mixed luck for Munster sides in the under-age interprovincials on Wednesday
THERE was mixed luck for the three Munster sides in interprovincial action on Wednesday as the Munster U18 Club side defeated Ulster, while the Munster U18 Schools and Munster U-19 side suffered defeat.
The Munster U18 Clubs side defeated Ulster U18 Clubs 24-7 at UL, while the Munster Schools U18 side lost out to Ulster U18 Schools 18-10 also at UL on Wednesday.
Munster U18 Schools managed two tries through Daniel Hurley and Darragh French.
Meanwhile, the Munster U19s fell to a narrow 13-11 defeat to Ulster U19 in their interprovincial fixture at Bangor Grammar School.
Munster U19 led Ulster at Bangor Grammar School courtesy of two penalties from Crescent College's Jack Delaney in the opening quarter and with very little between the two sides Munster took their lead into the break.
Ulster started the second-half stronger with an unconverted try before Delaney breached their defence to touch down unconverted.
With Munster leading 11-10 and both sides equally matched, it was Ulster who were awarded a penalty in the 36th minute to run out winners (11-13).
