Trinity 12pts – Lansdowne 52pts
Trinity were well beaten on Saturday at a sunny College Park. The Students were never really in it, as they fell behind early and never looked like getting back into the game.
After the first 20 minutes Trinity were more competitive, and created many opportunities with out finishing them off.
In the second half Trinity scored two well taken tries, when full back Michael Silvester scored a wonder try running in from 80 Metres out.
Trinity followed this when Captain Michael Courtney cutting a great line to finish a superb try minutes later.
The Visitors were far too good on the day though, and out played Trinity in all departments.
Trinity travel to Limerick next week for the first time this season, when they face Young Munster. The Students will be looking for their first win of the season against formidable opponents.
