WATCH: Keith Wood’s Son Lights Up Thomond Park With Incredible Solo-Try

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…

St. Munchin’s College are the Munster Schools Junior Cup champions for the first time in 20 years, after defeating Christian Brothers College 15-10 in the final at Thomond Park this afternoon.

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.
