Barry O'Mahony

The Dubliners needed a win to keep pace with St Mary's and Corkman O'Mahony was to the fore in delivering it, scoring two tries in a win over Shannon that keeps Clontarf in touch.

A Leinster Senior Schools Cup winner with Clongowes, O Suilleabhain -- a full-back cum centre -- has moved south for college and lined out for the Munster U-20s earlier this season. His try in the Cork college's colours defeat to UCD showed his promise.

32 Ards' concession of 292 points in nine matches make theirs the worst defence across the divisions, averaging 32 points a game.
