Blackrock College are taking on St. Gerard's School today in the Bank of Ireland Leinster Schools Cup in Donnybrook. It's 14-3 to St Gerard's at half time, but the standout moment of the match was the try that saw the Wicklow team go 12-0 up against the Blackrock.
Cormac Foley was the architect and executioner of the move, collecting the ball around the 5 metre line before delightfully dinking it into the air before collecting it just past the try line and touching down. Take a look:
29: TRY @StGerardsSch!

Cormac Foley is one of the players I'm excited about. Think his best position is scrumhalf. He's U19, and will be on the U20s next year. https://t.co/uMNidIFjCa

Exceptional performances from @StGerardsSch captain Ethan Baxter and centre Cormac Foley. They are good value for their lead with a 'Rock backlash expected to come
