SCHOOLS RUGBY VINNIE MURRAY CUP:Wing Sam Kingston struck for two of the four tries St Gerard’s scored as they outplayed Skerries Community College 24-9 in the second round of the Leinster Schools Vinnie Murray Senior Cup at a wet and windy Suttonians RFC yesterday.

They made solid use of the conditions to build a 9-7 lead at the break through three penalties from Billy Mulcahy.

But, the St Gerard’s outhalf Tommy Whittle latched on to an interception, centre Calvin Jordan poured through a hole for the third and Kingston wrapped it up with the fourth.

McMullen Cup champions CBS Naas could not quite take the step up to the next level, making Wesley College work hard for their 15-0 whitewash at the Garda Club in Westmanstown.

Wing Aaron MacDonnell and outhalf James O’Donovan got over for tries in the first half, Bray Wanderers soccer player Tim Hawe landing one of two conversions and a second-half penalty.

Mount Temple outhalf Darragh Irwin was the pick of the players in the 17-5 defeat of Newpark Comprehensive at Coolmine RFC.

St Andrew’s had an advantage in muscle and they used it the right way to punch in seven tries in a 42-3 dismissal of De La Salle Churchtown at Railway Union.
