Conditions on the day were very windy and credit to both teams for the quality of rugby played. A slow Boyne start allowed Ashbourne in for 2 early tries to go 12 - 0 up before Boyne started to grow into the game. A dominant Boyne scrum gave a good platform and a Boyne try brought the score to 12 - 5 at half time.

A bright sunny autumn morning saw the Bryanstown pitch in excellent shape as the teams lined up. Rathoath got off to a great start scoring a try in the first few minutes to go 5 - 0 up.
