Blackrock comes off the blocks quickly, running in six tries against Newbridge in the Leinster Schools Senior Cup

The Williamstown school was simply electrifying in the first 15 minutes, scoring as many points from a converted try from winger Charlie Molony, a second from Luke Ktitzinger and a penalty from Zach Quirke.

Things were already looking hopeless for Newbridge, although a breakout from Mark Masterson and a deft kick from out-half Tom Bohan had stretched Blackrock.

However, it took some time for Newbridge’s lineup to click, squashing her plan to test Rock with a series of runners and kicks from out-half Tom Bohan.

Even when “Rock lost Paddy McCarthy and Inigo Cruise-O’Brien to the trash can to give the losers a two-man advantage,” there was no jolt on the scoreboard.

When they were healthy again, Blackrock flanker Cruise-O’Brien piled high for Quirke’s conversion to make it 22-0 at the break

Unfortunately, Newbridge shot himself in the foot when Tom Brigg fell on a knock-on from behind the line. Quirke converted.

The physicality of Rock’s defense drove their opponents behind until Todd Lawlor found a nice line for a try in the 45th minute through quick thinking from Brophy.

Blackrock slammed the door from Conor Tonge’s leap onto the line to add seven more points and Cruise-O’Brien shot left with stunning skill to confirm their dominance.

They even had the luxury of finishing the game without dropping a point when captain Gus McCarthy lost to a yellow card late on.
