On a cold and very blustery Seapoint pitch, Lansdowne thoroughly deserved their 7-0 victory over Greystones. Two remarkable spells of on-the-line defensive play from Lansdowne, one at the death of the first half and the other half-way into the second half, were defining moments in this tight game. The Greystones pack were heavier to-a-man and the shut out by Lansdowne is a story in itself and each Lansdowne player must recognise the heroics of their defensive display.
0-0 at half time and with a fierce breeze, the game's only try came early in the second half, after a break from inside the Lansdowne half. Touched down by Hugh Herity and calmly converted by Austin Dodd.
