Left wing Jude O'Reilly bagged a hat-trick of tries as favourites Blackrock cruised into the Leinster Schools Junior Cup quarter-final at Donnybrook.

This is a formidable Blackrock side and they built a commanding 17-point first-half lead as O'Reilly (2) and lock Rory McGuire struck for tries before the break.
