Ryan on song as Limerick punish 14-man Exiles

Limerick 1-13 London 1-7

Limerick led all the way but their cause was greatly helped when London were reduced to 14 players after four minutes when Lorcan Mulvey saw red for an off-the-ball incident.

The Exiles fought hard and it was level at the interval -- 0-7 to 1-4 -- but Ian Ryan hit top form after the break as the hosts pulled away.
