A very dull afternoon to start with in Suttonian’s grounds.
Clontarf started the game well and got ahead from early on with a nicely worked try in the Corner.
Blackrock came back with a penalty before Clontarf scored 2 more penalties.
The second half saw Blackrock close the gap and level the score early on. Clontarf then had an extended period of domination that proved sterile. Both team will meet again for a replay.
