Rugby: Leinster Junior Cup Quarter Finals

Belvedere was the first name into the hat for the Junior Cup semi-finals, closely followed by Terenure.

It was anything but easy for either as Belvedere College had to withstand St Michael’s (10-0) on Monday.

The Ailesbury Road school, led by Scott Penny,  just lacked the cutting edge brought by Belvo’s talented fly-half David Hawkshaw (a member of the Dublin U16 football and hurling panels), who created the first try for lock Luke McDermott in the 28th minute and brushed off three tackles for the second try in the 52nd minute (pictured, right).

The boys from Great Denmark Street were joined by Terenure, who just about held off League winners Castleknock College 10-6, also at Donnybrook Stadium.

Second row Danny Waldron kicked Castleknock College six points clear with penalties either side of the break  before centre Adam La Grue took over by converting his own try and converting a final minute penalty to seal victory for the Dublin 15 outfit.
