Click here for photos from the AIB League Division One tussle between Dublin University and Dungannon at Merrion Road.

Pictured above: Dublin University winger Philip Howard, who set his fellow wide man Ronan Doherty up for the clinching bonus point try late on, tries to outstrip the Dungannon defence. Saturday’s clash, which produced a timely win for the students – their first in four league games, was played at the Wanderers club’s Merrion Road ground, due to the College Park pitch being unplayable.

Number 8 Martin Garvey, flanker Philip Rowe and prop Paul Doran-Jones shared the students’ other tries. Former Ireland Under-21 fly half and captain Gareth Steenson kicked four penalties for ‘Gannon.
