Ul Bohemians 14 Young Munster 16
A superb try from winger Darragh O'Neill, who raced over from his own 22, was the highlight of Young Munster's derby win over UL Bohemians at Thomond Park.
The move involved several players before O'Neill gained possession and he beat off three would-be tacklers for the try under the posts - his second in as many Division 1A games.
The conversion by Brian Haugh had Young Munster 7-5 in front with 31minutes played.
UL Bohemians had taken the lead after eleven minutes. Munster’s Tommy O'Donnell blocked down a clearance and fellow back rower, Ian Condell, won the race for the touchdown.
But Young Munster paid the price for indiscipline when JJ Hanrahan landed penalties after 34 and 37 minutes.
Just on the half-time whistle, scrum half Haugh was on target for Young Munster to leave it 11-10 in favour of the home side at the interval.
Mike Prendergast’s men were back in front three minutes into the second half when Haugh landed a penalty and he fired over his third 12 minutes later.
Bohs were unable to breach the Cookies’ grizzled defence and they had to settle for a losing bonus point with Hanrahan splitting the posts two minutes from time.
