The Limerick side took an early lead through Darragh Long, who slotted a penalty over after just 9 minutes. But they found themselves trailing after 20 minutes, with CBC going through the hands for a well-worked try.
Munchin’s battled back however, with Graham Kirwin scoring in the corner to make it 8-5. The up stepped playmaker Alex Wood, son of legendary Ireland hooker Keith, with an incredible solo-effort.
Darragh Long converted with Munchins managed to hang on despite a late CBC try. Check out Wood’s effort below. Unreal.
