Leinster Senior Schools Cup quarter-final draw pairs Blackrock and St Michael's

There are a number of big ties in store in the next round of the competition.

DEFENDING CHAMPIONS BLACKROCK College — bidding to win a 70th crown — will go head-to-head with St Michael’s College in the standout tie of the Leinster Senior Schools Cup quarter-final draw.

Blackrock’s title defence got underway with a 25-19 win over Presentation College Bray on Monday, but they’ll face a stiff test in the last eight against Michael’s, who were emphatic winners over Kilkenny College in the first round.
