2nds League   Dolphin 10  Sundays Well  10

Conditions were poor for this local derby, very strong winds and wet conditions so it was never going to be a classic, as a result it was very stop start with penalties and handling errors. Sunday's Well had the benefit of the strong wind in the first half, however apart from penalties neither side used the wind to its full advantage.

Sundays Well incurred the rath of the referee and at one stage were down to 13, a yellow and  a red, however Dolphin struggled to get out of their own half with the wind. A Sundays Well penalty was the only score in the opening half.

The conditions improved for the 2nd half, and there was an improvement in the Dolphin performance. They equalised through a David Aherne penalty and later took the lead through an Akim Farag try, converted by Aherne.

Dolphin had opportunities to put the game beyond doubt, however did not spot the overlap on a number of occasions and paid the price in the final play as Sundays'Well scored a try and converted to level the game. 

AIL   Blackrock College 18  Dolphin 13

A game both sides needed to win. Dolphin went into the lead after 12 minutes with a try from Emmet McCarthy, converted by Daryl Foley. They held the lead until Blackrock equalised with a converted try 2 minutes from half time.

The home side struck early in the 2nd half with a penalty, a lead which Foley soon equalised.

Both sides traded penalties at it was 13-13 into the final minutes, a draw was on the cards until the 80th minute when Blackrock scored a try to give them victory and the sides trade places in the table with Dolphin now in 9th place.

Dolphin need good vocal home support for next Saturday when they play Nenagh, as both Nenagh & Blackrock are just a single point ahead of Dolphin in the table

AIL   Dolphin 19  UL Bohemians 23

After the 80 minutes Dolphin were very disappointed to take just one point from this game. They did not take their opportunities in the opening half and left the visitors in for 2 easy tries and a 0-13 lead.

The opening minutes were hotly contested and after an altercation between the sides, hooker Liam Walsh felt very aggrieved to receive the same punishment as the UL Bohs No 8 as they both received yellow cards.
