This encounter was over as a contest by half-time as Rockwell had scored 18 points without reply.

It was a first half to be remembered for Rockwell centre Rory Parata, who scored all the points.

With Rockwell captain Aidan Butler in the sin-bin after 32 minutes, Castletroy improved and were rewarded with a try by Liam Cronin, converted by Conor Linehan, who had no joy with three first-half penalties that would have kept his side in touch.

However, Rockwell full-back Steve McMahon had the final say late on as he burst through the middle to touch down, with Parata converting.
