AIL Round Up | Young Munster fall short in Bateman Cup Final


YOUNG Munster struggled with Lansdown’s backline, Junior Cup action and much more.

Young Munster were no match for an impressive Lansdowne in Bateman Cup Final on Saturday as they fell to a 46-13 defeat.

At a windy Musgrave Park experienced half-backs Peter Hastie and Cormac Foley were just too good for Young Munster inspiring the team to seven tries.

The Shannonsiders took an early lead in the first half through two place kicks from Evan Cusack. Lansdowne bagged two tries in the first to make it 12-6 come half-time. The Dubliners started where they left off in a second half of relentless scoring.
