RBAI defeat Regent in semi-final

RBAI progressed to the Northern Bank Schools' Cup final with a 10-0 victory over Regent House at Ravenhill.

The Belfast school took a 10-0 interval lead through a try by prop Daryl Maxwell with full-back Paddy Irwin landing a conversion and a penalty.

Regent, last season's beaten finalists, were never able to get into their rhythm with RBAI missing numerous scoring chances in the second half.

RBAI will face the winners of the game between MCB and Ballyclare High School.

They play their semi-final at the same venue on Wednesday.

The greasy surface made conditions difficult with numerous errors from both sides dictating a scrappy game.

RBAI were the more dangerous in the first half as they went through the phases although Regent missed two kickable penalties through full-back Neil Armstrong.

The 29-times winners deservedly took hold of the game late in the half. They sneaked ahead in the 30th minute when Irwin stroked over an easy penalty after Regent scrum-half Alister Lockhart stole the ball at a ruck from an offside position.

On the stroke of half-time RBAI skipper Maxwell, who was an inspiration throughout, nipped in to pick up at a loose ball at a ruck to score from close range with Irwin adding the extras.

It was all one-way traffic in the third quarter with RBAI totally dominant but missing two glorious try-scoring opportunities while Irwin hit an upright with a penalty.

Although reduced to 14 men when centre Rory McCurry was sin-binned for foul play, RBAI easily hung on to secure victory.

.... and that's when Inst scored their try.

Some confusion over what RHS yellow was for - suggestion was that scrum-half made a break (although illegally) and kicked the ball forward and chased it. Ref penalised original offence but carded him for kicking the ball away. seemingly he didn't "kick the ball away" but thought he was still playing. If so, it seems harsh. (This info from spectator who was there)

Colin (anyone?) shed any light?

Well my kids paid £6 each for their tickets so £8 for adults would seem likely. Does feel a bit dear though.
