Ashbourne 2nd XV also beat Monkstown in the curtain raiser. It was second against 3rd in the league and Ashbourne frogged leaped the visitors into second place with 20 points to 10 win. With Jeff Mahon and Eddie Conaty making their first starts of the season a much-changed side drew early blood with a brilliant individual try from Conaty, which Toolan converted. Toolan added two more penalties and converted a try from Shane McNulty.
