Ronan Calvert reports from Bandon RFC..
St Munchin’s came into this fixture as favourites and their class showed with a strong opening ten minutes. Early doors, winger Josh Costello came close following a spell of possession for the visitors and minutes later his side would make the breakthrough.
As the Limerick men rumbled forward, prop Kean Sheehy eventually picked and went on the ten minute mark to give his side the lead.
Five minutes later, Bandon replied with a breakaway. The home side worked their way into Munchin’s territory before winning a penalty and putting three points on the board.
HT: Bandon 3-5 Munchins
After the break Bandon picked up from where they left off, asking one or two questions of the Munchins defence. However, following a ten minute spell under the cosh, Munchins eventually relieved the pressure as outhalf Alex Wood showed some invention to kick cross-field and find his winger in space in what proved a key moment in the lead up to their second try.
Munchins had turned the tide and took control from there. Following a number of phases, number eight Liam Neilan barged his way over the whitewash to put the result beyond any doubt.
FT: Bandon 3-12 Munchins
