The Munster Junior Cup final replay between Clonmel and Shannon will take place this Sunday at 2.30pm in Irish Independent Park.
The game takes place after a cracking 16-16 tie in Thomond Park last weekend.
That clash was tight throughout with Shannon's Ronan McKenna and Clonmel's Conor Cooney exchanging penalties midway through the opening half before a Cooney penalty six minutes before the break gave the holders a 6-3 half-time lead.
McKenna levelled 10 minutes into the second half and minutes later he intercepted a pass and raced away to score the game's first try which he converted.
The lead only lasted 10 minutes as Alex Sheehan took a quick tap penalty and got in for a try which Cooney converted to tie up the scores.
Three minutes later Clonmel were back in front with Cooney's third penalty, but McKenna restored parity with a penalty for Shannon with eight minutes remaining to send the game to a replay.
