Shannon Keep The Pressure On

Shannon Keep The Pressure On

Seven tries from Shannon, including a hat-trick from John Lacey

On Saturday Cork Constitution came from being 15 points down to defeat Blackrock College 28-25 thanks to a try in injury time from replacement Andrew Burke. Lansdowne might have had the consolation of a bonus point from the visit of Garryowen until Alan Purcell landed an injury time drop-goal to deny them even that.Buccaneers and Co Carlow scored two ties apiece at Oak Park but the difference in the end was the two penalties posted by Buccs out-half David Connellan that gave his side a 20-14 win.Dungannon dished out a 37-3 hammering to Galwegians while Belfast Harlequins came from 20-7 down to pip the UCD 24-23 at Deramore Park.

Shock of the day came in Eaton Park where the home side slumped to defeat against a St Mary’s College side who were recording just their first victory in six outings.
