Oosthuysen on the double

HALF-BACK pairing Tip Delaney and Jaco Oosthuysen combined for all of the points as Munster made it two wins from two in the Schools A Interprovincial series at Musgrave Park yesterday.

Leinster were ahead after four minutes following a brilliant try from full-back Jamie Scanlon after he ran from half-way, but once scrum-half Oosthuysen knifed through from deep to cross in the 11th minute and Delaney converted, Munster led until the end.

After Delaney and Leinster's Ben Porter had exchanged penalties, it was 10-8 to the hosts at half-time but within a minute of the restart Delaney had jinked over from close range to put nine between them.

Porter did put over another Leinster penalty with 29 minutes left but they didn't score again and Delaney added two more penalties before Oosthuysen recorded his second try two minutes from time.
