Scorers: UL Bohemians: Pen: Ed Torrie
Blackrock College: Try: Andrew Conway; Pen: James Power

The home side were on top in the forward exchanges in the first half but could not penetrate a solid ‘Rock defence.

All that Bohs had to show for their dominance was a penalty by out-half Ed Torrie.

Blackrock started the second half in livelier manner and launched a series of rucks and mauls.

Ultimately it paid off when schoolboy star Andrew Conway finished off a terrific left wing attack with a try which centre James Power converted, and there was no denying the Dubliners their opening win.

UL BOHEMIANS: Danny Riordan; Cian Aherne, David Moloney, Martin McPhail, Finbar Aherne; Ed Torrie, Cathal Sheridan; David Kilroy, Sean Henry, Mike Storey, David Foley, James O’Neill, Tommy O’Donnell, John Ed O’Connor (capt), Kieran Essex.
