Terenure Turn On The Style In Seven-Try Rout

Terenure Turn On The Style In Seven-Try Rout

Terenure College were in seventh heaven at Musgrave Park on Saturday as they enjoyed their second successive bonus point victory over Munster opposition – a runaway 47-0 thrashing of Dolphin.

Terenure followed up last week's 42-0 home hammering of Young Munster by breaking the 40-point barrier again with seven tries in all – including a hat-trick from fleet-footed winger Harry Moore.

With Lansdowne losing at Ballynahinch, James Blaney's men are now four points clear at the top of Division 1A ahead of a four-week break in Ulster Bank League fixtures.

The dominant Dubliners showed no mercy to injury-hit bottom side Dolphin who had an uphill task by half-time, trailing 21-0.

Dolphin's woes were compounded by injuries to the Quill brothers, number 8 John and replacement Paul, and with Rory Scannell, Ryan Murphy and John Madigan playing with Munster 'A' in Dublin, Steve Ford's resources were severely stretched.

The elusive Moore notched his hat-trick in 60 minutes, taking his haul to five in four league games, while influential number 8 Kyle McCoy is also on five following a well-taken brace in Cork.

Dolphin assistant coach Barry Keeshan missed a 20th minute penalty, but their scoring chances were few and far between with efforts from Moore (12 and 27 minutes) and McCoy – late on in the first half – putting 'Nure on course for another big win.

Even McCoy's sin-binning in the 53rd minute failed to stop the flow of scoring from the visitors as Moore nabbed their bonus point right on the hour mark.

McCoy returned to touch down in the 75th minute and late scores from replacement Ian Hanly and scrum half Kevin O'Neill completed the rout.
