UCD 21 Cork Constitution 28, Belfield

Division One leaders Cork Constitution came with a late rally at Belfield to grab their sixth straight win.

Two first half tries from UCD flanker Kevin Croke had the relegation-threatened students dreaming of a shock win.

They led 18-11 at the break, having conceded a sole try to Con flanker Ed Leamy, the younger brother of Ireland star Denis.

UCD centre Fergus McFadden tagged on a penalty, his third of the afternoon, but a late burst which included a Richie Lane penalty and a converted try from winger Cronan Healy steered the Leesiders to another success.

Scorers: UCD: Tries: Kevin Croke 2; Cons: Fergus McFadden 2; Pens: McFadden 3 Cork Con: Tries: Ed Leamy, Dan Nethery, Cronan Healy; Cons: Richie Lane 2; Pens: Lane 3
