Corinthians grab a third on the trot

Three wins on a trot sees Corinthians in the top three in the Ulster Bank League division 2A.

The Galway city outfit continued their fine form this season when they grabbed a well-deserved 29 - 10 win away against Seapoint.

With the wind at their backs, Corinthians dominated territory in the early exchanges and led 9-0 after 20 minutes thanks to three penalties from the boot of Conor Murphy. Seapoint gradually got back into the game and were rewarded with a penalty from Brian Keegan which left the score at 9-3 at the break.

Corinthians upped the pace from the restart and after strong work from the forwards, Darin Classens was released out wide to score in the corner. Five minutes later Classens put prop forward Finlay Bealham away in the corner for his team’s second try, and when Conor Murphy added another penalty, the visitors led 22-3 after 50 minutes.

The home side did enjoy a revival, sparked by a strong maul which resulted in Des Doyle bagging a try, with Keegan adding the extras. But with the Corinthian back row dominating the opposition, Wayne Williams settled the game with a barnstorming run and try in the dying moments of the game.
