The first points of the game came courtesy of a Ross Byrne penalty for UCD after 11 minutes. this was swiftly followed by a Shane Grannell try to put UCD eight points up inside the 15 minute mark.

The missed conversion was to be regretted as a Gavin Dunne penalty for St. Mary’s reduced UCD’s lead to five points after 18 minutes.

That lead was to only last ten minutes as St Mary’s managed a try through Marcus O’Driscoll, this time converted by Gavin Dunne to keep the game very much alive heading into the half time with the score 11-10 to UCD.
