The J4’s took on Monkstown in Sydney Parade on Saturday afternoon in the second round of the Winters Cup.

Mary’s made a bright start and thought they had opened the scoring after 2 minutes but the try was disallowed for a forward pass. Out-half David Carpenter soon slotted a penalty to make it 3-0 though.

The good weather and hard pitch made for some running rugby, as well as some bumps, bruises and dislocated fingers. Mary’s soon extended their lead to 8-0 when second row Andy McCarthy got the touchdown after the pack mauled a lineout deep in the Monkstown 22.

Carpo took advantage of some poor tackling to set off on a slaloming run from inside his own half to score the next try and make it 13-0.

Prop Alan Godfrey got over for a well-worked try to make it 20-0 to Mary’s at half time.

The second half was a scrappy affair with the ref’s whistle providing the soundtrack to the whole half. Mary’s scored two further tries – another lineout maul giving Andy his second score and some wondrous hands by replacement Gavin Rafferty sending Tim Henderson scuttling down the wing, avoiding two tackles and scoring the try.

Monkstown managed to pull a score back but Mary’s progress to the next round, where they will face Coolmine.

Final score: Monkstown 7-34 St. Mary’s
