All-Ireland Under-20 Final: Saturday, April 30 Dublin University 25 Lansdowne 10, Coolmine RFC Scorers: Dublin Uni: Tries: Colm Coyle, Gareth Murphy, Michael Kavanagh; Cons: Johnny Watt 2; Drops: Watt, Murphy Lansdowne: Try: Johnny Murphy; Con: Andrew Geraghty; Pen: Geraghty
The students lifted the Frazer McMullen Cup in style at Coolmine - hitting Lansdowne for 19 unanswered points before the headquarters side's full-back Johnny Murphy notched a late converted try in the closing stages.
The sides were locked at 3-3 at the break after Johnny Watt dropped a goal for Trinity in reply to Lansdowne scrum-half Andrew Geraghty's early penalty.
Trinity - who brought Ireland Under-19s Diarmuid Laffan and Matthew D'Arcy on the bench in the second half - thundered ahead on the restart.
The students' back three Coyle, Murphy and left wing Michael Kavanagh all touched down in the third quarter to tally up a 22-3 lead.
Murphy's try for Lansdowne was no more than a consolation and try-scorer Gareth Murphy fittingly had the final word for Trinity, dropping a late drop goal from 25 metres out.
Tony Smeeth's youngsters can double up next Sunday when they take on UCD in the McCorry Cup final (kick-off 2.00pm, Wanderers RFC) - gunning for their third such title.
