Leinster outclass Ulster men 09/02/2014
Colin Fennelly and Joe Bergin both grabbing a brace of goals for Joe Dooley’s side with Fennelly’s first minute strike giving an early indicator of what was to follow.
Fennelly set the tone of what was to follow when he goaled inside the opening minute and further goals from Bergin, Paul Ryan (penalty) and Fennelly again had Leinster 4-5 to 0-4 to the good inside 20 minutes.
The game was over as a contest even at that early stage and by half- time Leinster had stretched their lead 5-11 to 0-6.
