It is the first time since 2012 that Munster ‘A’ have reached the final of the cross-border competition. and they did so with a compelling performance. Two tries from impressive flanker Conor Oliver framed an astute performance from Peter Malone’s young side, with the only black spot being the ankle injury suffered by Ireland Under-20 out-half Bill Johnston.

Jersey Reds advanced to the final after getting the better of high-flying London Irish in an English Championship derby at the Madejski Stadium yesterday afternoon.
