That was an amazing series of games. Both teams played to win and deserved to win. Wonderful rugby

Yea you'd be correct in that presumption. Unfortunately not meant to have the same level of rugby talent

That was one of the most memorable games I have been to for a long time.
It had lots of "kick it out!!!!- great try!!!!" type sentences.
2 great teams playing heads up rugby. The Blackrock pack were brilliantly coached in Lineout
and maul techniques and the Belvedere backs were a joy to watch .

The 4G Donnybrook pitch has really helped move the schools' cup from the early-mid '00s era of kicking, drudgery and 9-8 scorelines.

Agree but it is only a 3G pitch they did not spend the extra money on th preparing the base layers to make it a 4G but agree it has been great and can only see more being installed around the country

draw has been made.. Michaels play Belvo in the semi's

Roscrea Clongowes in the other semi.

But I agree Michaels, Belvo best two teams left.

Apologies didn't see the new draw! Should be a good tussle between Belvo & Michaeal's and the other semi could be good as well, Clongowes have a knack of coming up on the outside when no one expects them to. Looking forward to both games

Roscrea will use their big pack of forwards to beat Clongowes IMO.

Michaels Belvo will be close.. Michaels so much better coached this year.

Roscrea used there big pack to beat Clongowes anyway, although Clongowes made it a lot closer than I thought.. good set of backs there.

Michaels Belvo 2moro, seems like Harry Byrne(younger brother of Ross and Leinster u18 outhalf) is out which is a big blow for them. Belvo heavy favourites and a rematch of last years final looks likely.
