Strong finish gives Carlow victory
Simon Rea hit three points to help Carlow record a largely unconvincing win over London at a muddy Ruislip.
A Killian Phair free left just a point between the sides with six minutes remaining, but Carlow finished strongly, Rea finishing two counter-attacks with points to clinch the Barrowsiders' third win of a disappointing campaign.
