To out-score the League Champions and leaders by 5 tries to 4 should probably have been enough to win this encounter played in ideal conditions at the Bowl on Saturday. However, it was not to be as our conversion to probably win it after the 5th try sailed wide and Cork Con were subsequently awarded a penalty in injury time to register a 4 point win. However, the two bonus points earned by Collidge helped to consolidate our 3rd place on the league table.
