Corinthians woes continue

hians will need to keep their heads up when they head to Cashel for Saturday's Ulster Bank League division 2A fixture at Spafield.

Still at the bottom of the table, Corinthians All Ireland League woes continued against University College Cork in Cloonacauneen Park last weekend, losing 31-7.

The students, despite playing into a gale, broke through the Corinthian cover after eight minutes with centre Kevin Slater touched down and right winger Kieran O'Keeffe added the extras. Some minutes later O'Keeffe was on target with a well taken penalty before he sauntered in for a second try, which he converted.

Corinthians eventually got into the contest. Dominating a five metre scrum, Donnchadh Phelan and captain Colin Raftery provided the impetus to over the students' try line with number eight Ene Fa'atau claiming the touchdown. Outhalf James Proctor added the extras to leave Corinthians trailing by 15-7 at the break.

However it was all UCC in the second half. O'Keeffe slotted two penalties, and although Corinthians two props Alan Bane and Aodhan Glynn made a gallant effort to drive forward at every opportunity, the students notched three more tries.

Corinthians: S Keller, O Daly, D Panter, P Noone, D McDermot, J Proctor, G Flaherty, A Bane, A Walsh, A Glynn, D Phelan, C Raftery (capt ), R Mooney, S Royal, E Fa'atau. Replacements: M Byrne, J Barrett, N Hogan, A Semo, P Long.
