•Corinthians are riding a high at present. With the senior side currently sitting in pole position in division three of the AIB League, the club’s u-20s have now reached the AIL division one play-offs. Last weekend they overcame Bruff by 25 - 7, posting both the win and a bonus point to qualify ahead of Cork Con, Shannon, and Young Munster. Led by captain James Robinson, Corinthians opened the scoring after 10 minutes with a well worked try off a scrum when No.8 Liam Carpenter broke left and fed winger Kevin Russell who raced from the half way line before finding the supporting Brendan Carpenter who finished off. The Corinthian pack dominated the bigger Bruff counterparts, and after sustained pressure in which man of the match David Ott was prominent, James Robinson crashed over for a well deserved second try. Bruff countered with a try, but Corinthians grabbed try No 3 when winger Aengus O'Connell set up Finn Gormley for a 15-7 half-time lead. It was over within minutes of the restart when Colin Raftery’s line-out steal produced the fourth try which winger Kevin Russella scored.
