A slow start by our lads saw us trail inside the opening ten minutes of the game, a lead which our hosts maintained until the half time whistle. Shortly into the second half we made it when Josh McCarthy slotted home after some good approach play by Jamie Hannan and Callum Murphy. Both sides had chances thereafter but is was the home side that scored the winner following a wicked deflection. A good performance by all, particularly in the second period.
By Rory Keane Tuesday 28 Jun7: Following an impressive year career at the top level, Eoin Reddan has called it a day. The Limerick man won three Heineken Cups in his career.

It proved to be an emotional week for the veteran scrum-half, who enjoyed a trophy-laden career, including three Heineken Cups during stints with Connacht, Munster, Wasps and Leinster.
My dad was here last night as well, went for dinner last night, it was lovely, really enjoyed that. Normally things sink in with me a bit late so I was a little bit emotional today but it was business as usual for the week.

A year-old guy has a friend for life with a year-old second row — bizarre! But it was just that kind of tour. Look at the players we have now. So, when does the first day in the real world begin? I told them I do!
