Just four teams remain in the Munster Schools Senior Cup with two blockbuster derbies taking place this week.
Glenstal Vs Crescent
Monday 5 March, Markets Field, 2pm
Glenstal come into this Munster Schools Senior Cup Semi-Final after overcoming strong Rockwell and Bandon sides in their first two games. Crescent on the other hand were routine winners over Clements in the first round and five-try winners over Rockwell in the quarter-finals. The two sides are evenly matched in nearly every department meaning this one may just come down to who can be more clinical on the day.
Prediction: Glenstal by 3
CBC Vs PBC
This Cork rivalry has caught the imagination of just about everyone interested in the schools game. Both sides enjoyed respective thumpings of Ardscoil and Clement’s in the quarters, leaving this encounter as a difficult one to predict. However, the word on the street is that PBC have been the more impressive outfit thus far and as a result they get our backing for the win.
Prediction: PBC by 3
