Lansdowne retained their hold on the Leinster Senior Cup for the third time in a row against a spirited and determined Dublin University in Energia Park, Donnybrook. The Students got an early try from a lucky bounce and a first half penalty to bring them to 10 points. James Rael went off early with a blood injury and was replaced by Jack Dineen who seemed to enjoy himself in the good conditions.
First half tries by Ian Prendiville and Peter Sullivan both converted by Scott Deasy brought the score to 14-10 at half time. In the second half, tries again by Peter Sullivan & Adam Leavy (2), Eamonn Mills, Foster Horan but not without some determined play by the opposition with a fine try from the centre through Lansdowne’s defensive line. Adam Leavy’s last try in the corner was converted well by Captain Eamonn Mills.
FT Score 49-22
