The Leinster Schools (Under-18) team, sponsored by Nivea for Men, defeated Munster 11-3 in Wednesday afternoon’s Interprovincial derby in Donnybrook…

Clongowes hooker Dylan Donnellan scored the only try of the game for the hosts on a wet afternoon in Donnybrook with Gonzaga College out-half Conor McKeon adding a brace of penalties.

Munster out-half G Lyons replied with the visitors’ only score, a penalty, but the Blues were good value for their win on a difficult day for fast flowing rugby.
