Gonzaga well worth victory
Gonzaga College 10 Terenure College 0: Gonzaga College advanced into the quarter finals after a well earned victory at Anglesea Road.
Gonzaga capitalised on their wind advantage in the second half and took the lead when winger Thomas Costelloe touched down in the corner after a great skip pass from outhalf Oran James to centre Harry Brennan created the opportunity.
Eight minutes later, Terenure fullback Ronan O’Hare had his kick excellently blocked down by Costelloe and flanker Jack McNamara was the quickest to react to touch down in the corner.
