Academy 2nd XV 24  v Ballynahinch 5th XV 21

For the second successive Saturday Matt Corkey’s Academy 2nd XV won by 3 points. With Hinch scoring a converted try late into injury time (49th minute) not enough to take the points. Cup rugby next week for the 2nd XV.

Academy earned a losing bonus point in this match with Omagh – 4 points for a win would have been more deserved.
