Captain Niall Kenneally enjoyed a try-scoring return as he helped Division 1A leaders Cork Constitution claim a 49-17 bonus point win, in their best performance of the season to date, when defeating their nearest rivals Lansdowne. Front rowers Declan Adamson and Ivan Soroka got on the scoresheet in Clontarf’s easy 45-14 bonus point win over Shannon, a result which moved the Dublin club into second place in All-Ireland League Division 1A.

Fifth-placed Garryowen closed the gap on Division 1A play-off rivals Dublin University to a single point following a 24-14 win over UCD at the Belfield Bowl.

Young Munster moved out of the bottom two in the table to give their Division 1A survival bid a huge lift with a 24-18 bonus point win over semi-final hopefuls Dublin University, while second row Stephen Caffrey’s 77th-minute try sealed another bonus point home win for Terenure College – their third in five rounds – as the division’s bottom side got the better of UCC on a 39-29 scoreline at Lakelands Park.
