Mark Boyle went over to open the scoring. Then flanker Jack Loscher finished well to score wide on the left. Both of these tries were converted efficiently by Bill Foley.

Both teams then shared penalties to leave the score at 17-3 , and Nure were unfortunate to lose their influential hooker just before the break the break.

Terenure applied tremendous pressure throughout the 2nd half, but the Lansdowne defense held out well and eventually a break out was finished with a 50m run by Mark Hernan to score.

Then the pack rolled in from a lineout on the 22 , Diarmuid Brannock eventually grounding, to give Lansdowne the bonus point.

Again, both tries were converted neatly by Billy Foley.
