SKIBBEREEN RFC and Navan shared the spoils in the All-Ireland U18.5 club rugby final at Mullingar this afternoon, the game finishing 10-10.

Despite Skibb dominating the early exchanges, it was Navan who went ahead with a converted try and led 7-0 at half-time.

Within five minutes of the restart, Skibbereen RFC were level, courtesy of a try by Adam O'Regan, converted by Jamie Shanahan.

However, Navan were quickly back in front in the 51st minute, 10-7, after Skibb conceding a penalty, but Skibbereen equalised six minutes later with a penalty converted by Jamie Shanahan and it stayed that way until the end.

So, the sides share the cup and are joint All-Ireland champions!

Earlier there were celebrations for Bandon RFC on beating Gorey 27-16 in Mullingar to win their All-Ireland club rugby final.
