WATCH: Tough day at the office for Limerick’s AIL teams

Shannon were the only victors from Limerick’s AIL teams in action today as they came away with a 16-3 victory over Navan in Division 1B at Thomond Park’s back pitch.

Pa Ryan got the only try of a disappointing game. The win gives Shannon their second from their three games this season.

Shannon led 10-3 at half time after Ryan’s try and five points from the boot of Billy Gray. The same man added a second penalty after the break and the victory was completed by Ben Daly from the kicking tee nine minutes from time.

John Poland crossed for UCC’s first half try, while James Taylor kicked two penalties and a conversion in the opening 40 minutes.

Munsters failed to add to their total in the second half and it was Poland that proved to be the match winner with a try on the hour that he converted himself.

Gearoid Prendergast’s men are without a win from their three game so far in the 2019/20 campaign.

Garryowen fell to a 37-19 loss to Dublin University at College Park. Tommy O’Hora opened the scoring for Conan Doyle’s side, but the home side hit back to level the game on 22 minutes.

Brian Fitzgerald added a second for Garryowen just before the half hour, but that was as good as it got for the Light Blues.

Dublin University levelled with their second try before half time and went in at the break ahead (17-14) with a late penalty.

It was all the home side after the break with Sean Rennison’s try for Garryowen proving to be scant consolation on a difficult day.

In Division 2A, Old Crescent lost their 100% record after a 34-22 loss to Cashel at Spafield.

Cashel led 22-10 at half time. Crescent’s points coming from a Kyle Theron try and a penalty and conversion by Ronan McKenna.

Val McDermott and Shane Mullally added further tries for Crescent in the second half, but it was enough to stop a rampant Cashel outfit.

UL Bohs fell to their third defeat on the bounce after losing 26-21 at the University of Limerick.

Two from Kieran O’Shea and one from Ogie Scannell accounted for the Bohs tries. They set second from bottom in 2A.

In Division 2C, Bruff fell to their first loss of the season with Midleton coming out victorious on a 23-10 scoreline at Towns Park. Cian Clifford got the solitary try for the south Limerick side.
