AIL at a glance

Star turn

Gareth Quinn McDonagh (Shannon): Jerry Flannery's return turned most heads at the start of Friday's Limerick derby, but the teenager was the name on everyone's lips after he landed all 16 points.

One to watch

John Cooney (Lansdowne): Scrum-half Cooney scored two tries as Lansdowne hammered UCC. A pacy, skilful all-rounder, the Ireland U-20 international is an exciting talent in a club side full of stars.

Number of the day

8 Lansdowne paid tribute to the late great Moss Keane by running riot against his other former club, UCC, running in eight tries.
