Newbridge's electric back line proved the difference as the Kildare boys repeated their league final victory over Kilkenny to claim the Leinster Schools Junior Plate at Naas RFC yesterday.
Tight-head prop Ed Wynne put Newbridge ahead in the first half, with wing Joe Darcy adding a second try, but a determined Kilkenny side battled hard and kept in touch with centre Tom Bulfin's touchdown, converted by wing Simon Williams.
However, full-back Mathew Madigan's kicking and a fine finish from out-half Billy Dardis put Newbridge in command after the break, despite a late converted try by Kilkenny prop Cian Casey.
