Young Munster got off to the perfect start with a try from Clayton Stewart in the second minute after an excellent break from Darragh O’Neill. Steven Airey added the extras.

Garryowen winger John Hurley replied with a brace of penalties but that was to be as good as it got for his side. Alan Kennedy had Young Munsters second try to extend their lead.

Steven Airey had the chance to further their advantage but his long penalty attempt on the stroke of half time fell short.

Six minutes after the restart, Young Munster would notch their third try with Evan O’Gorman releasing Derek Corcoran for a try under the posts, Steven Airey made no mistake with the conversion.

New Zealander Stewart effectively ended the game as a contest with his second try with twenty minutes remaining. Airey’s conversion left it 28-6 in favour of the Young Munster.
