Corinthians take a break from Ulster Bank League action this weekend after suffering a 28-6 loss to division 1A leaders Nenagh Ormond last weekend.
The Galway city side had travelled to Nenagh with high hopes after their fine win against Malone, but the Co Tipperary outfit, with four wins under their belts, were up to the task. Outhalf Clayton Stewart slotted their first penalty after 10 minutes before Corinthians replied with a fine penalty from outhalf Jack Feeney. With the game keenly poised, an excellent break by hooker Conor Muldoon was finished by scrumhalf Peter O'Leary, and Stewart added the extras.
This was a wake up call for the Galway outfit and they narrowed the gap before the break with Feeney slotting a mighty penalty.
Corinthians spurned an excellent opportunity after the break after locks Sean Masterson and Joe Campbell drove orward up to Nenagh's five metre line, winning a penalty. However Corinthians went for a scrum, and the opportunity was lost. It gave the home side a great boost and they went on to score two excellent tries.

Colin Joyce, Pat O'Toole, Craig Hansberry, Sean Masterson, Joe Campbell, Dylan Donnellan, Sam McCormack, Lise Soloa. Replacements: Ger Fahy, Sean Connolly, Stuart Royle, Ger O'Connor, Simon Keller.
