Waterpark RFC – Pan Munster Under 18’s

Waterpark 32
Kinsale 13

Waterpark advanced to the semi-final of the competition following this win over Kinsale last Saturday in Ballinakill.

The home side took an early lead with a penalty from out half Molloy when the Kinsale forwards were caught offside.

Waterpark failed to deal with the restart and following a number of phases Kinsale were awarded with three points from a penalty. Molloy soon had the home side ahead with a well struck penalty.

Wing forward Dev Murphy crossed for the opening try of the game when he took a good line from a pass from Jordan O’Regan. Murphy had enough pace to out strip the home defence and dot down with Molloy added the extras.

A well worked move from the backline saw centre James Kiersey score the second try of the game. Waterpark held a 18-3 advantage at the break.

The visitors were first to score in the second half with a penalty from their outhalf. Waterpark upped their performance after this and scored two more tries from prop Tom Swift and second row Jack Walsh. Alex Molloy and Cian Hogan landed both conversions.

Overall a good squad performance, with Tom Swift, Dev Murphy and Jordan O’Regan to the fore. Waterpark will now face defending champions Bruff away next weekend.
