Munster ‘A’ ran out convincing 39-6 winners over Leinster ‘A’ in Wednesday’s interprovincial encounter at Waterpark RFC, which was played out in front of a huge attendance.
Scott Deasy’s seventh-minute try, converted by Jeremy Manning, gave Munster ‘A’ the ideal start and Manning added a penalty for a 10-0 home lead.
Leinster ‘A’ out-half James Power landed a penalty in response but a second Deasy try, again converted by Manning, pushed the home side further in front.
And although Power was on the mark again before half-time, an early second half try from scrum half Duncan Williams, converted by his half-back partner Manning, put this game way beyond Leinster’s reach.
Flanker Tommy O’Donnell weighed in with a try in the 55th minute and two further tries from replacement Mike Sherry simply served to emphasise the dominance of a well-drilled Munster side.
