Having secured the JP Fanagan League Cup on the previous week, Lansdowne finished their campaign with another victory, this time against runners up DUFC in College Park.
Trinity started well and took an early lead when they broke from their 22 to score a converted try.
Lansdowne took their time but eventually got into their stride and scored when out half Stephen Madigan deftly chipped over the Trinity backline and then sent James Reynolds in unopposed to level the scoring.
Lansdowne then increased their lead when Diarmuid Brannock finished off a forwards drive to leave the score at 14-7 at the interval.
Lansdowne then started to dominate and further tries from Ross Barron, Henry Godson and Conor McAleer gave Lansdowne a very healthy 31-7 lead.
Then discipline got the better of the champions and after receiving 2 concurrent yellow cards in the last ten minutes, Trinity took full advantage and replied with 3 converted tries before the referee blew it up.
Next game is the QF of the McCorry Cup v Terenure RFC in Lansdowne Rd on March 22nd
