Boyne 17's 27 Barnhall 20 (Leinster Plate Semi-Final)

Boyne 17's travelled to Navan to take on Barnhall in the Leinster 17's plate. Taking to the pitch straight after Boyne 19's had defeated North Kildare in the 19's Cup Semi-final Boyne had an unlucky start when the referree penalised them for hands in the ruck, in what looked like a very harsh decision. Penalties were then swapped to leave the score at 6 - 3 to Barnhall. Cormac Brodigan made a super break and offloaded to Shane Dowling to touch down which Richard Keane converted.

Boyne 17a lose out to Birr in the Cup

Birr 11 , Boyne U17s 8.
