Leading the Provincial League play-offs table after the opening two rounds, the Dubliners moved 16-7 ahead of Monivea at half-time courtesy of a late try from Stephen Verso.

Two tries in the final quarter sealed it for the Leinster League champions who were roared on by the vocal away supporters.
Congratulations to everyone involved in the Seapoint set-up, including head coach Nigel Osbourne and forwards coach Declan Keegan, father of out-half Brian.
