A case of mixed fortunes for the underage squads

By Ronnie Ingram

Ulster Schools were hoping to finish their Inter-Pro campaign undefeated but Munster proved too strong at the Kingspan Stadium and prevailed 22-7.

"Munster took their opportunities. They ran everything at us and we just didn't win enough possession," commented Ulster manager Richard Clingan.

"We gave our best so the title is now for Leinster and Munster to sort out but I must give the boys full credit for their efforts," he added.

Ulster started confidently when a Conor Kelly break was carried on by Robert Lyttle for the former to score. Munster were 10-7 ahead at the interval and although they were reduced to 14 players towards the end the home team could not capitalise.

Ulster U19s pulled off a spectacular victory over Munster 5-3 in Cork but the U18s lost to Munster 36-6 at the Kingspan.

The U20s, though, clinched the Inter-Pro title on Friday night at Dooradoyle 17-12.
