Ulster U18 Clubs 8-14 Connacht U18s

Tries in either half from prop Cian Scanlon and winger Nathan Horan saw the Connacht U18s end their Interprovincial campaign on a high with a 14-8 win over Ulster at City of Armagh RFC.

A youthful Connacht side containing a number of players who will be eligible for this age-grade again next year bounced back from defeats to Munster and Leinster to put hosts Ulster to the sword.

Out-half Cian Treacy, one of the standout performers on the day, landed both conversions in the victory.
