ROCKWELL COLLEGE CRUISED through this opening round clash in the Clayton Hotels Munster Schools Senior Cup tie at Musgrave Park.

Awaiting Rockwell in their quarter-final qualifier are Bandon Grammar School, with that tie down to be played in two weeks’ time.

Rockwell began this one with intent and they got the opening try of the game after less than two minutes played. Adam Maher reacted quickly to intercept a Clonmel pass before finishing, with John O’Sullivan kicking the conversion.

Rockwell scored their second try when Matthew Burke powered over the line, as his side began to look commanding. There was only one side in this encounter in the opening half and indeed Rockwell were to find a few more tries before the interval.

Joshua O’Dwyer scored with a great run to the corner, while Peter Wall put the finishing touches to some good work by Dean Fanning. Both O’Dwyer and Wall had a pair of tries each, as Rockwell were totally dominant to earn a 40-0 advantage at the half-time break.

The pattern remained the same, as Rockwell scored another try moments into the second half courtesy of Burke.

That was before substitute Kevin Grogan came on to finish a try in the right-hand corner. It was turning into a procession for Rockwell by the midway point of the second half, with Ben McCarthy also touching down. O’Dwyer then went over to complete his hat-trick, as Rockwell capped off a very comfortable day at the office.
