Match Report

13:51
Peter Forkin's dream debut continues. He now has 5-14 to reduce Leinster to 96-8. This is currently the best bowling at the highest level in Leinster cricket since Tim Law's 6-34 in 2012
13:36
An absolutely staggering 1st team debut for Merrion's Peter Forkin. The sixteen year old debuts today having yet to take a wicket this season in a match each for Merrion 2 and Merrion 4. He currently has figures of 3-9 as Leinster slump to 84-6. Dublin University's Milo Egan took 4-21 on "Senior" debut earlier this season
12:57
Merrion's last three visits to Rathmines have all resulted in one sided contests, with the last two seeing Merrion coming out on top. 2012 saw Leinster's title winning pace attack of Law, Leacock and Carroll dismissing Merrion for 63; 2014 saw Merrion running up 335 (with no one scoring more than John Anderson's 78) as Merrion won by 163 runs. And last year it was Leinster's turn to collapse, Max Neville taking 4-41, as Leinster were bundled out for 124
