PRESIDENT, LEINSTER RUGBY 2020/22<br />

As President<br />

of Leinster<br />

Rugby, I<br />

extend a warm<br />

welcome to<br />

all those<br />

attending the<br />

RDS Arena for<br />

today’s final<br />

of the Bank<br />

of Ireland<br />

Leinster<br />

Schools<br />

Senior Cup<br />

and a special<br />

welcome to<br />

all those who<br />

can’t be here<br />

to savour<br />

the unique<br />

atmosphere<br />

of one of<br />

the great<br />

sporting<br />

occasions on<br />

the Leinster<br />

Rugby<br />

calendar but<br />

are joining<br />

us on our<br />

various media<br />

channels.<br />

4 | Leinster Schools Senior Cup Final 2022<br />

GONZAGA COLLEGE VS BLACKROCK COLLEGE<br />

We look forward to an exciting<br />

final game in a competition<br />

that is renowned for producing<br />

excitement, drama, passion<br />

and sportsmanship and indeed<br />

represents the values of our<br />

sport in camaraderie, endeavour,<br />

respect, discipline, friendship,<br />

enrichment and enjoyment.<br />

First played in 1887 when <strong>Blackrock</strong><br />

became the first school to have its name<br />

inscribed on the cup (one cup which cost<br />

£50 which and described as “massive<br />

and the most valuable in Ireland but very<br />

ugly”).<br />

The competition has gone from strength<br />

to strength and was played for 132<br />

consecutive years up to and including<br />

2019 which is a most remarkable<br />

achievement when you reflect on the<br />

great events that have occurred in the<br />

world and in Ireland from that first final<br />

when <strong>Blackrock</strong> overcame Farra School<br />

(Westmeath) by a score of 3-0. To date<br />

17 schools have had their winning names<br />

engraved on the cup’s plinth.<br />

The global pandemic has impacted on<br />

all our lives and now is an opportune<br />

time for us to reflect on the tragedy that<br />

it brought to families and loved ones<br />

of the 10,000 deaths attributed to the<br />

disease on our island. A special word<br />

of gratitude to all those individuals<br />

working in our health care structures and<br />

in our Government agencies for their<br />

magnificent efforts in fighting this invisible<br />

enemy and for ensuring that so many<br />

patients did not succumb to the disease.<br />

We owe them all our eternal gratitude.<br />

We were unable to stage the 2020 final<br />

between Clongowes Wood <strong>College</strong><br />

and Newbridge <strong>College</strong> so the title was<br />

rightly shared between these two Kildare<br />

schools. As the pandemic continued to<br />

evolve all sporting activities were severely<br />

impacted and Leinster Rugby alone lost<br />

in excess of 12,000+ fixtures at all levels<br />

during the past two seasons.<br />

So this season’s final will mark the 133rd<br />

Leinster Schools Senior Cup Final and<br />

will feature <strong>Blackrock</strong> <strong>College</strong> (69 titles)<br />

and <strong>Gonzaga</strong> <strong>College</strong> who will be<br />

endeavouring to win their first title having<br />

been runner up in the 2019 final).<br />

<strong>Blackrock</strong> <strong>College</strong> have won their three<br />

cup fixtures with a total of 115 points<br />

scored, conceding 25 points having<br />

overcome Saint Michaels (25-20),<br />

Terenure <strong>College</strong> (48-0) and Newbridge<br />

<strong>College</strong> (41-5).<br />

<strong>Gonzaga</strong> <strong>College</strong>’s path to the final saw<br />

them record victories over Clongowes<br />

Wood <strong>College</strong> (34-26), Wesley <strong>College</strong><br />

(32-7) and St Mary’s <strong>College</strong> (34-21)<br />

for a total of 100 points scored and 54<br />

points conceded.<br />

The very best of luck to all those players<br />

from the extended squads from both<br />

teams and I hope that they savour the<br />

occasion and indeed cherish the journey<br />

and friendships that this year’s cup<br />

campaign has brought them on.<br />

A special word of thanks to all those<br />

Principals, Gamesmasters and coaches<br />

in the 120 Leinster-affiliated schools<br />

and indeed to all those 73 affiliated<br />

Leinster clubs for their important role<br />

in developing and mentoring all those<br />

young players who were participating<br />

in the 39 Leinster Schools and the 24<br />

Leinster Youth-Schools competitions<br />

staged by Leinster Rugby this season.<br />

A special word of thanks also to<br />

the Leinster Rugby Referees for their<br />

magnificent support in ensuring that the<br />

215 annual Leinster Rugby competitions<br />

were expertly catered for this season<br />

under difficult circumstances.<br />

The 190 active referees attend in excess<br />

of 5,700 Leinster fixtures annually and<br />

we urge all players, team management<br />

and spectators to acknowledge and<br />

respect the contribution that our match<br />

officials make in ensuring the safety of<br />

our players.<br />

We have an ever-increasing annual<br />

fixture list and this will require the<br />

services of additional match officials.<br />

Leinster Rugby in association with the<br />

Leinster Rugby Referees can assist you<br />

on embarking on a rewarding career as


a match official so please give back to a<br />

sport that has enriched your life.<br />

These days, the world of rugby continues<br />

to grow with 127 countries affiliated<br />

to World Rugby. It is estimated that<br />

worldwide 10 million people play rugby<br />

with three million of these female players.<br />

Leinster Rugby is committed to being a<br />

sporting organisation that is inclusive and<br />

welcoming to all.<br />

Reflecting on the journey that Leinster<br />

Rugby has undertaken to establish itself<br />

as one of Europe’s premier clubs we are<br />

totally focused on building sustainable<br />

pathways for players to enjoy the sport<br />

at every level. In following the successful<br />

strategies in developing the Youth and<br />

School structures in Leinster we are<br />

committed to embarking on developing<br />

women’s and girls’ rugby in a similar<br />

fashion.<br />

At present we have 32 Leinster clubs<br />

fielding women’s teams in nine Leinster<br />

competitions and five Leinster Girls<br />

competitions that feature in excess of 70<br />

girls youth teams. Recognising also the<br />

growth in the number of Leinster schools<br />

participating in the IRFU X7 for Junior and<br />

Senior cycle girls in secondary schools.<br />

I also wish to acknowledge the<br />

outstanding work that Leinster’s 54 Club<br />

Community Officers and Community Rugby<br />

Officers have undertaken in promoting<br />

rugby during the past two seasons.<br />

Throughout our 12-county province, they<br />

engage in 627 primary schools and<br />

216 secondary schools in encouraging<br />

participation in rugby as a sport in its<br />

various formats. Likewise, to all those<br />

volunteers who run our mixed-ability teams<br />

and 16 mini rugby festivals.<br />

What continues to drive Leinster Rugby<br />

forward is the strength and the passion of<br />

the various rugby structures that we have<br />

to play for the proud colours of our clubs,<br />

our schools, our province and our country.<br />

Thank you to all involved in making<br />

sporting dreams come true.<br />

DIRECTOR, BANK OF IRELAND AREA EAST<br />

A very warm welcome to the RDS Arena for the 2022 Bank of<br />

Ireland Leinster Rugby Schools Senior Cup Final.<br />

It has been a long two years<br />

without this final to look forward<br />

to, so it’s great to have it back and<br />

hopefully played in favourable<br />

weather conditions that lend<br />

themselves to exciting rugby<br />

being played. Of course, Covid-19<br />

is still with us, and we must still<br />

remain vigilant, but it has been<br />

heartening to witness the return<br />

of schools rugby at all levels back<br />

over the last few months.<br />

We in Bank of Ireland are proud to<br />

sponsor the tournament once again this<br />

year as part of our commitment to the<br />

domestic game across the province. It has<br />

been a hugely enjoyable campaign, and<br />

a huge thanks must go to all the Leinster<br />

Rugby administrators for ensuring the<br />

competition ran so smoothly. No doubt<br />

the last two years have presented a host<br />

of difficult challenges for them with many<br />

late changes, cancellations and of course<br />

postponements, but it is to their immense<br />

credit that they kept the show on the road.<br />

Thanks must go in particular to Dermot<br />

O’Mahony, Lisa Doyle, Hayley Whyte,<br />

and all the team in Energia Park operating<br />

under the watchful eye of Stephen<br />

Jameson, and of course to Ultan Daly, the<br />

groundsman. To the Schools Committee<br />

and Conor Montayne, thank you for all<br />

that you do for the schools and students<br />

playing here today and indeed across<br />

all the schools cup competitions. A word<br />

of thanks too for Premier Sports and to<br />

the wider media for their support and<br />

coverage of the games.<br />

Finally to the two schools competing<br />

here today. The colour and energy that<br />

<strong>Gonzaga</strong> <strong>College</strong> and <strong>Blackrock</strong> <strong>College</strong><br />

have brought to Energia Park over the last<br />

few months has been wonderful.<br />

But the aim for everyone involved at the<br />

start of the year would have been to<br />

leave Energia Park and to take that short<br />

spin up the road to the RDS Arena for<br />

Schools Cup Final day.<br />

It is a road well-worn by both schools<br />

over the last few years. <strong>Gonzaga</strong> were of<br />

course here in the last instalment in 2019,<br />

<strong>Blackrock</strong> a year before when they won<br />

the trophy in 2018.<br />

The two sides have now reached the<br />

final in the RDS and as difficult as it might<br />

seem in advance for the players, it is<br />

a day to be enjoyed; to take in all that<br />

Schools Cup Final day has to offer and<br />

to embrace those unique moments with<br />

teammates, coaches, teachers and family.<br />

These are truly special days.<br />

Remember, over the last two years,<br />

nobody has had the chance to make<br />

the hallowed journey to the Ballsbridge<br />

venue at all. Indeed, Newbridge <strong>College</strong><br />

and Clongowes Wood <strong>College</strong> had to<br />

share the trophy in 2020 with Covid-19<br />

impacting all of our lives just before the<br />

final was due to be played.<br />

It’s a reminder of how fortunate we all<br />

are to be back up and running as a<br />

society and to be able to enjoy wonderful<br />

occasions like we have here today at the<br />

RDS Arena.<br />

Best of luck to both sides ahead of what<br />

promises to be an enthralling encounter.<br />

GONZAGA COLLEGE VS BLACKROCK COLLEGE


A very warm welcome to the<br />

Bank of Ireland, Leinster Schools<br />

Senior Cup Final. After having no<br />

competition last year, it is great<br />

to be back enjoying this great<br />

competition.<br />

We all know now how important this<br />

competition is in the lives of the players,<br />

supporters, schools and families every<br />

year.<br />

The competition this year has been full of<br />

entertainment and excitement so far and<br />

no doubt today will not disappoint.<br />

Today’s final sees <strong>Blackrock</strong> <strong>College</strong> take<br />

on <strong>Gonzaga</strong> <strong>College</strong> SJ to be crowned<br />

Leinster Schools Champions 2022.<br />

To all the teams who have competed<br />

in the competition to date, a huge<br />

congratulations. The standard of the<br />

game being played improves year on<br />

year in this great competition, as we have<br />

witnessed this year with so many closecalled<br />

games.<br />

Leinster Rugby benefits greatly from<br />

all the hard work the schools put into<br />

the players, as we can see from the<br />

representation on the Leinster team.<br />

The game shows us the hard work,<br />

determination and courage you have as<br />

players which will in turn be of benefit<br />

in life.<br />

I would like to take this opportunity to<br />

thank Bank of Ireland for their continuing<br />

support in sponsoring this great<br />

competition. They are a great partner<br />

in promoting the game throughout the<br />

province.<br />

2022 Leinster Rugby Schools<br />

committee<br />

Chairman welcome<br />

I wish to thank all my colleagues on the<br />

Schools Committee for their continuous<br />

hard work throughout the season. They<br />

are a vital part of running all competitions<br />

within Leinster at all levels on behalf of<br />

the rugby-playing schools.<br />

I would also like to express my gratitude<br />

to the Leinster Branch, particularly<br />

Dermot O’Mahony, who as Schools<br />

Administrator works incredibly hard for<br />

schools rugby, and to Steve Jameson who<br />

organises the smooth running of Energia<br />

Park throughout the season.<br />

To Lisa Doyle who works incredibly hard<br />

on promoting the schools game at all<br />

levels, it’s very much appreciated. Thanks<br />

are also due to Hayley Whyte and the<br />

ARLB, who provide all the officials for the<br />

matches.<br />

To both finalists, the determination and<br />

grit that you have shown to get to this<br />

final in some tense moments, where you<br />

showed the intent by playing exciting, fast<br />

and skilful rugby, and I’m sure this will be<br />

on show today again. To both captains,<br />

Gus McCarthy and Noah Maguire, I<br />

wish you the very best of luck today and<br />

enjoy this special occasion.<br />

Finally, this great competition is an<br />

integral part of the Leinster Rugby<br />

calendar and I’m sure that the final will<br />

be a great occasion and that everyone<br />

will embrace and enjoy the day.<br />

Leinster Schools Senior Cup Final 2022 | 9<br />

GONZAGA COLLEGE VS BLACKROCK COLLEGE


Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Schools<br />

Senior Cup Final Preview<br />

BY DES BERRY<br />

GONZAGA COLLEGE <strong>vs</strong><br />

BLACKROCK COLLEGE<br />

On the bare statistics, this has all<br />

the appearance of a David and<br />

Goliath final as <strong>Blackrock</strong> <strong>College</strong><br />

chase a 70th Bank of Ireland<br />

Leinster Schools Senior Cup at the<br />

RDS Arena.<br />

This would be to disregard the serious<br />

progress made by <strong>Gonzaga</strong> <strong>College</strong><br />

over the last decade, beginning with their<br />

domination of the Leinster Senior League,<br />

winning four of the last five.<br />

As the power base of the traditional top<br />

six schools has eroded, St Michael’s<br />

<strong>College</strong> have made the leap to join<br />

<strong>Blackrock</strong>, while there are significant<br />

signs that <strong>Gonzaga</strong> are on the way with<br />

Newbridge <strong>College</strong> climbing the ladder<br />

too.<br />

As recently as 2019, the Sandford Road<br />

school made it to the final for the first<br />

time, falling short to St Michael’s.<br />

They have built on this experience to<br />

outmanoeuvre Clongowes Wood, Wesley<br />

and St Mary’s in impressive fashion this<br />

year.<br />

Coach Declan Fassbender has put in<br />

place a framework around which the<br />

players have been able to express<br />

themselves.<br />

They trade on mobility and ingenuity,<br />

their tall locks Thomas Murphy and Luke<br />

O’Callaghan coming into their own as<br />

the competition has evolved.<br />

They already boasted an anchorman in<br />

tighthead George Morris in the front row<br />

and a well-balanced loose forward trio.<br />

Meath’s All-Ireland minor-winning<br />

midfielder Paul Wilson has the athleticism<br />

to match his nose for the grind.<br />

Captain Noah Maguire is a hardy soul,<br />

picking up scraps and putting down ball<br />

carriers, while Gavin O’Donnell is always<br />

on the lookout to turnover the ball.<br />

The back division is backboned by the<br />

hard to put down Jody Browne at inside<br />

centre and Ireland Schools candidate<br />

Hugo McLaughlin at full-back.<br />

For all that, <strong>Blackrock</strong> have been ruthless<br />

in how they have dealt with Terenure and<br />

Newbridge, amassing 89 points for the<br />

loss of five.<br />

10 | Leinster Schools Senior Cup Final 2022<br />

GONZAGA COLLEGE VS BLACKROCK COLLEGE


If there is a template for upending ‘Rock,<br />

it is back there in the first round when St<br />

Michael’s were a toss of a coin away in<br />

a thriller.<br />

It is difficult to pinpoint a weakness in<br />

a squad filled with Leinster and Ireland<br />

talent, beginning in the front row where<br />

captain Gus McCarthy and tighthead<br />

Paddy McCarthy are exceptional.<br />

The back-five is a collection of multi-skilled<br />

forwards, headlined by the non-stop<br />

involvements of flankers Liam Molony and<br />

Inigo Cruise-O’Brien.<br />

However, it is in behind this potent pack<br />

that the set-piece platform at scrum and<br />

lineout can be turned into devastating<br />

attack.<br />

The game-reading of Oliver Coffey allied<br />

to the distribution of Zach Quirke at halfback<br />

makes it easier for complementary<br />

centres Luke Kritzinger and Hugh Cooney<br />

to do what they do.<br />

Best of all, the incursion of full-back<br />

Ruben Moloney into the line means<br />

another level of speed and passing for<br />

the wings.<br />

Sooner or later, <strong>Gonzaga</strong> look like<br />

making the breakthrough. <strong>Blackrock</strong> will<br />

do what they can to make them wait one<br />

more year.<br />

Story of the Season 2021/22<br />

gonzaga college<br />

2021/22 has turned out to be an immensely exciting<br />

and fulfilling season for <strong>Gonzaga</strong> thus far.<br />

In late August and early<br />

September, the overriding<br />

emotions of all the players on the<br />

Senior squad were predominantly<br />

relief and joy to be simply playing<br />

again after all the Covid-related<br />

disruption of the last few years.<br />

I think we had a keen sense of<br />

appreciation to be able to compete<br />

against all our old foes rather than<br />

the monotony of training without any<br />

clear goal to aim at. We enjoyed a<br />

very successful start to the season,<br />

winning early-season friendlies against<br />

St Mary’s and <strong>Blackrock</strong> at home<br />

and against Belvedere away.<br />

However, we were not getting carried<br />

away as we knew that all of those<br />

teams, including ourselves, were missing<br />

their representative players who were<br />

on Leinster Schools duty at the time.<br />

We began our league campaign<br />

with a setback, losing in the last play<br />

away to an excellent Kilkenny <strong>College</strong><br />

team. This turned out to be our only<br />

defeat of the season to date.<br />

We then enjoyed group stage<br />

victories against St Gerard’s, CUS and<br />

Newbridge to set up a home quarter-final<br />

against Roscrea in which we prevailed.<br />

Over the mid-term break, we went on<br />

a hugely enjoyable tour to Biarritz<br />

where we had a live training session<br />

against Bayonne U-19s and a friendly<br />

game in beautiful surroundings<br />

against St Jean De Luz U-19s.<br />

Leinster Schools Senior Cup Final 2022 | 15<br />

GONZAGA COLLEGE VS BLACKROCK COLLEGE


This tour to France was such a thrill<br />

as no one had been able to travel for<br />

nearly two years and was as much about<br />

allowing the squad to bond as it was<br />

about rugby development.<br />

On our return, we scraped home in a<br />

very tense league semi-final against Pres<br />

Bray and it was a similar story in the<br />

final where we edged out a very unlucky<br />

Kilkenny <strong>College</strong> to claim our fourth title<br />

in five years.<br />

This is a record of which we are very<br />

proud as the league is increasing in<br />

strength and depth year on year as<br />

evidenced by the increasing success of<br />

the schools like Newbridge, Roscrea<br />

and ourselves in the cup in recent<br />

years.<br />

In early January, we had a notable<br />

friendly victory against St Michael’s but it<br />

came at a significant cost as our captain<br />

Davy Colbert sustained a season-ending<br />

injury giving a match-winning pass in the<br />

final minute of this intense encounter.<br />

Davy was a massive loss to the team for<br />

both his playing and leadership abilities<br />

but has stayed very much involved in the<br />

training of the squad.<br />

Story of the Season 2021/22<br />

blackrock college<br />

As with any year,<br />

the cup campaign<br />

to date has given<br />

our SCT many<br />

adversities. The<br />

anticipation<br />

for every cup<br />

competition<br />

starts to build<br />

after Christmas<br />

and the twoweek<br />

delay to<br />

this year’s cup<br />

made the pot<br />

boil over with<br />

anticipation.<br />

The first and biggest challenge to<br />

date was against our sister school<br />

– St Michael’s <strong>College</strong>. From the<br />

start, the hits were big, but the<br />

occasion was bigger.<br />

The team victorious in the first-round bout<br />

were scheduled favourites to go all the<br />

way to the RDS. No team deserves to<br />

have such a disappoint so late in a game<br />

and so early in the championship.<br />

But in the end, it was Michael’s who bit<br />

Rock’s first bullet. From that day onwards,<br />

<strong>Blackrock</strong> realised that they would need<br />

to be at the top of their game if after a<br />

good performance, and only by the skin<br />

of their teeth, they got into the quarter<br />

finals.<br />

A fortnight later, on a seldom sunny<br />

Sunday afternoon, Energia Park hosted<br />

‘Rock and Terenure <strong>College</strong>. Once again,<br />

excellent rugby talent was on display.<br />

Leinster Schools Senior Cup Final 2022 | 25<br />

GONZAGA COLLEGE VS BLACKROCK COLLEGE


It was the blue and white supporters<br />

who had reason to celebrate with the<br />

numerous tries that were ran in from<br />

anyone with enough desire to do so.<br />

Terenure’s defence looked under threat<br />

from once Rock had the ball - regardless<br />

their position on the pitch. Although it was<br />

less stressful than the previous round, the<br />

fans enjoyed the competition as much as<br />

any other day.<br />

The particular confidence <strong>Blackrock</strong>’s<br />

SCT of 2022 continued their run into the<br />

semi-final to play Newbridge <strong>College</strong>.<br />

26 | Leinster Schools Senior Cup Final 2022<br />

GONZAGA COLLEGE VS BLACKROCK COLLEGE


Newbridge <strong>College</strong> had beaten<br />

<strong>Blackrock</strong>’s first of two JCT’s of the<br />

academic year. The junior team of<br />

fourth years needed to be avenged for<br />

<strong>Blackrock</strong> to see the RDS for the first time<br />

since 2018.<br />

This game showcased what knock-out<br />

cup rugby is all about. A game that<br />

show-cases what knock-out sport is about.<br />

Defending our line gallantly gave our<br />

attack the opportunities it needed to<br />

convert. The team worked together with<br />

the fluidity and competence to get to a<br />

Leinster Schools Senior Cup.<br />

It was a rugby cliché - the forwards<br />

won the game while the backs decided<br />

how much. ‘Rock Boys Are We’ would<br />

be sang another time and this time, in<br />

Leinster’s home ground.<br />

With an astounding campaign of their<br />

own, <strong>Gonzaga</strong> <strong>College</strong> have a chance<br />

to win their first Senior Cup title, while it<br />

would be the 70th for <strong>Blackrock</strong> if they<br />

were to become victorious.<br />

With two phenomenal teams and history<br />

making on the line, this game cannot<br />

be predicted. For a fact, we know that<br />

come this afternoon, one special group of<br />

young players will be crowned victorious.<br />
