Robert ‘Ducky’ Quinn touched down twice as Cork Constitution came from behind to beat a valiant St. Mary’s outfit at Templeville Road.

Hooker Quinn was central to Con’s devastating lineout maul which paved the way for three of their four tries.

Brian Walsh’s visitors came back from an early 10-0 deficit. Mary’s winger Keith Douglas scooted in for a converted try, topping off a Jonathan Sexton penalty.

Quinn was mauled over for a 35th-minute try, making it 10-7 at the break, and Quinn, flanker Brendan Cuttriss and prop Timmy Ryan added second half tries to help the Leesiders go first.

Scorers:

St. Mary’s: Try: Keith Douglas; Con: Jonathan Sexton; Pens: Sexton 2

Cork Con: Tries: Robert Quinn 2, Brendan Cuttriss, Timmy Ryan; Cons: Daragh Lyons 2
