U-18 Clubs side warm up for inter-pros with CBC victory

The Munster U-18 Clubs continued their preparations for the upcoming Inter-provincial Championship with a challenge game against CBC Cork's Senior Cup side on Sydney Hill.

CBC, currently preparing for their Munster Schools Cup campaign, provided the ideal opposition for the club squad, who continue with their progression in time for the September 28 kick-off against Leinster.

The Clubs outfit recorded a 38-12 victory, but a highly competitive fixture was less about the result and more about providing team management the opportunity to view player options and pairings available to them for the upcoming inter-pros.

The U-18s open their campaign away to Leinster in Donnybrook on Saturday, September 28 and then face their Connacht and Ulster counterparts at home in Waterpark RFC and Musgrave Park respectively.

Head coach Noel O'Meara will be looking to improve on last year's results, which saw Munster record only one victory against Ulster.
