It was tight early on, Wexford wing Ruairi Devereux scorching the grass for the first try against two penalties by Ratoath fly-half Darragh Kelly.

CBS Wexford put daylight between the sides on the scoreboard after a stunning counter-attacking effort, finished off by out-half Eoin Roche, made it 18-6 at the interval.

From there, the Wexford side seized on the opportunities that came their way, replacement prop Ciaran Kavanagh steaming over from a five-metre scrum and lock Daragh Comiskey making it 51-13 on the hour before Ratoath flanker Dylan Doyle crashed over the line.

CBS Wexford – L Barry; R Devereux, S Stafford, J Healy, M Roche; E Roche, C Fenlon; J Roche (C Kavanagh 45), S Roche, J Byrne, M Maguire, D Comiskey. G Byrne, D Kavanagh, C Joyce-Ahearne (capt).
