Corinthians had a try by winger Dave Murphy three minutes from time to thank for getting them out of jail against Sunday’s Well at a cold but sunny Cloonacauneen on Saturday. The hosts produced their worst performance of the season in front of a good home crowd as they struggled to match the visitors’ superior work rate and aggression. The Cork side entered the contest with a solitary win from five outings while Corinthians started with their only defeat coming in their last game against Old Wesley. The hosts might have read too much into that particular statistic as they were sluggish and sloppy throughout and were fortunate to prevail at the end of an uninspiring contest.
