The weather has been poor to say the least and the main pitch in castle avenue has been in a bad state.
Both team were intent on playing but Clontarf during the first half confiscated the ball and pushed Lansdowne defence into making faults. Lansdowne towards the end of the half managed to get a bit of possession and scored a penalty from rather far out.
Half time score 9 -3
The second half saw Lansdowne followed up on the late first half form for a while before Clontarf took the control back. A penalty was all the rewards the hosts could get; before a late fightback from Lansdowne saw their hopes of a losing bonus point dashed as the kick strayed.
Final score 12 -3
