On Tuesday, St Munchin’s met St Clement’s on Thomond Park’s back pitch with the Corbally men coming out as convincing 60-6 winners,

The following day saw the three other games take place. In the early match at the UL, a Darragh French inspired PBC got the better of Crescent as the Cork school booked a spot in the semis with a 25-14 victory.

Castletroy were left equally disappointed as Bandon also travelled from Cork to secure a win at the University Of Limerick. That one finished Castletroy 15-17 Bandon.

Meanwhile at Clanwilliam, there was another home loss. Rockwell this time losing out to Cup favourites Christians to a scoreline of Rockwell 3-18 CBC.

Best of luck to all in the next round.
