A strong start from Nenagh Ormond wasn’t enough to pull out a result against a relentless Old Crescent side who scored 26 unanswered points in the second half to ease to victory in Rosbrien last Friday night in round seven of the All Ireland League.

Ormond will be disappointed with their capitulation in the second half, as they were full value for their 15-3 lead after 45 minutes of play, dominating the scrum, coupled with some good running rugby, all while scoring three unconverted tries to put themselves in good shape going into the final 30 minutes of the half.

But, once Old Crescent got back into the game through a Gavin O’Reilly try in the 50th minute, they took complete control as Nenagh were helpless to stop the onslaught from the Limerick outfit who ran in four tries for a bonus-point victory as Ormond left with nothing.

Travelling Nenagh supporters were treated to some good stuff in the first half from their side and the mini-break the last few weeks seemed to have rejuvenated the team, with everyone looking sharp and eager to put in a performance; and they certainly did that in the first half.
