2nds win close encounter with Trinity

Metro League Division 1 – Old Wesley 15 Dublin University 10

In an error strewn match Old Wesley 2nds left it late to claim victory over Dublin University at a cold but dry College Park. 

Wesley headed the territory and possession stats for the first half but trailed 5-7 at half time. Trinity scored first with an intercept try after 10 minutes and it was not until just short of half time that Donnchadha Phelan capitalised on a miskicked clearance to cross in the corner for a try.

Trinity kicked an early second half penalty and it was not until into the last quarter before Tom Morehead crossed for a try to level the scores. 5 minutes later a break by Craig Miller  was stopped just short of the line before Richie Jermyn collected to claim a try for Old Wesley to take the lead for the first time in the match.

Both sides had some late opportunities but no further scores ensued.
