Full-back Andy Cummiskey kicked a late drop goal as UCD edged out St Mary’s College in this well-contested Division One clash at Belfield.

The students made it two league wins on the bounce as they came back after Jonathan Sexton had kicked Mary’s in front.

Sexton, the Leinster out-half, landed five penalties in all - four in the second half - to give Mary’s a 15-13 lead.

UCD, who led 8-3 at half-time, had tries from winger Vasily Artemiev and back rower Kevin Croke.


UCD: Tries: Vasily Artemiev, Kevin Croke; Pen: Killian Lett; Drop: Andy Cummiskey
