Munster Schools Senior Cup final preview: CBC v Glenstal Abbey, Musgrave Park, Sunday, 4pm (Live Eir Sports 1)
CBC go in search of a record 30th Munster Schools Senior Cup title against Glenstal Abbey, still chasing that elusive breakthrough, at Musgrave Park on Sunday.
The Cork school is tied at the top of the roll-of-honour with fierce rivals, PBC, and have strong credentials to repeat their 2016 success, when prop Luke Masters played.
They’ve scored 17 tries en route, defeating Árdscoil Rís 34-7, St Clement’s 68-17 and Pres 17-15 in a dramatic semi-final.
Glenstal have every chance of making up for last year’s 11-3 final defeat by Pres with five starters and another five from the bench on duty tomorrow.
The Co Limerick school overcame Rockwell College 10-8, Bandon Grammar School 24-7 and Crescent College Comprehensive 30-10.
Both teams would relish favourable conditions though the forecast doesn’t provide much encouragement in that regard.
