Horan's treble fires Kilkenny

A hat-trick of second-half tries by centre Foster Horan was the highlight as Kilkenny romped to a seven-try victory in the Leinster Senior Cup.

The south Leinster boys only led 5-0 at half-time courtesy of Peter Lydon's early try, but they had been against the wind.

St Andrew's held firm until the final quarter, when Patrick O'Driscoll's score opened the floodgates. O'Driscoll added a second, and Mark Abrahams also crossed, but Horan was the star of the show.

Kilkenny -- J Yates (M Abrahams); J McDonnell, F Horan, D Ruddock, M Elmes; P Lydon, P O'Driscoll; M Ronaldson, A Talbot, R Elmes; W Shirley, M Barnard Day; J McGuinness, G Ridgeway, R Deacon.

St Andrew's -- M Reid; M Ruttle, G Foxton, A McDonagh, M Hick; C Buckley, M Quirke; A Kirker, A Brady, J Cauley; N Veltom, P Cremen; J Barrington, C Veymes, M Kerr.
