Kan­turk win could kick­start their sea­son

Kan­turk 14 Gal­bally 12

MUN­STER Ju­nior Rugby is re­ally be­gin­ning to hot up now as the com­pet­ing sides all vie for po­si­tion in their re­spec­tive di­vi­sions.

Clonmel are still the pace set­ters in the J1 with an­other im­pres­sive win see­ing them move clear at the top of the ta­ble how­ever from a north Cork stand­point it is Kan­turk’s first league suc­cess of the sea­son that stands out this week­end.

Ply­ing their trade in J1 for the last two years the boys from Duhallow have strug­gled to get go­ing this sea­son with two league losses from two in their open­ing games of the 2018/19 cam­paign but that changed last Sun­day as the boys from the banks of the Al­low saw off Gal­bally by 14 to 12 which sent the Lim­er­ick side bot­tom and Kan­turk rise two spots to third from bot­tom.

It was too early to call this one a tra­di­tional six pointer, but to be fair to all con­cerned the game had that feel about it and thank­fully for Kan­turk the home side man­aged to take the four points on of­fer.

A try from Eoin O’Sul­li­van looked to be an im­por­tant score for the home side but it needed an­other three penal­ties from Conor Cremin to seal the deal – with Cremin’s last score com­ing in the fi­nal minute to se­cure this hugely im­por­tant win for the men in green.

Tom O’Cal­laghan added to the Water­ford side’s pain with two con­ver­sions and ta brace of penal­ties.
