The 2018 Munster Schools Senior Cup saw Glenstal Abbey earn their first title following a one-point victory over CBC.

Glenstal captain Ben Healy was the stand-out player of the 2018 competition and looks to have a bright future ahead of him.

Team of 2018 Munster Schools Senior Cup

15. Jonathan Wren (PBC) A wonderful talent who can make the step up to pro game.

14. Ronan Quinn (Glenstal) Frightening pace and a nose for the line. All you want in a winger.

13. Sean French (PBC) French is already highly thought of in the pro game and has it all.

12. Joe Johnston (Castletroy) The burly Castletroy centre powered his way on to this team.

11. Eoghan Barrett (CBC) Barrett was in fine form on the wing for the beaten finalists.

10. Ben Healy (Glenstal) Brilliant in every game and will only get better.

9. Jack Crowley (Bandon) Some fine showings saw Crowley get the nod.

8. Daniel Okeke (Ard Scoil Rís) A major talent in the back-row. Big future ahead.

7. Marc Fleming (Glenstal) A groundhog at the breakdown and nifty with ball in hand.

6. Daniel Feasey (Crescent) Feasey has bags of potential and will only improve as time goes on.

5. Conall Kennedy (Rockwell) A superb operator in the lineout for a fine Rockwell side.

4. Shane Kelly (St Munchin's) Kelly performed at a seriously high level for St Munchin's.

3. Luke Masters (CBC) Masters was part of a dominant CBC scrum. A big talent.

2. Adam Ahern (St Clement's) Ahern had a fine year at hooker for Clement's.

1. Mark Donnelly (CBC) Like his fellow-front rower from CBC, Donnelly excelled.
