Barbour seals it for Enniscorthy

Centre Ross Barbour was the hero for Enniscorthy as his try seven minutes from time gave Enniscorthy victory over Ashbourne in an exciting clash at Naas RC last night.

Enniscorthy led 14-12 at half-time with a pair of tries from Richard Dunne and Shane O'Sullivan, which out-half Ivan Poole converted, while Paul Morris kicked a four penalties for Ashbourne.

The lead changed hands three times in the second half, before Barbour sprinted clear down the left wing to touch down for the decisive score.
