HOOKER Declan Moore bagged one of Shannon RFCs nine tries as they prepared for their All-Ireland League Division 1B play-off with Highfield by thumping Old Wesley at Thomond Park on Saturday.

Twenty five-year-old Moore, who moved to Munster from Australia in September 2021 having signed with the province for the 2021/22 season, has also featured for Shannon RFC through their AIL campaign.
