AIB League leaders Cork Con maintained their 100% start to the season by overturning a 17-point deficit at Temple Hill today.

Buccs had raced into an early lead thanks to tries from Paddy O’Sullivan and Wayne Munn, each converted by Lee Turner who added a penalty in the 27th minute to give the visitors at 17-0 lead.

The fightback began just before half-time when two penalties from Pat McCarthy followed by second half converted tries Jerry Murray and Ruairi Kenneally which tied the scores at 20-20.

Turner edged the visitors in front with a penalty only for Con to steal victory with a Jim Williams converted try.
