RSD head coach Gareth McClintock paid tribute to his players after they brushed aside Grosvenor to set up a Danske Bank Schools’ Cup last-16 clash with kingpins Wallace Grammar on Saturday.
Tries by Jono Shrestha, James Wilson and Adam Evans and two penalties and a conversion from the boot of Luke McMullan helped Dungannon to an impressive victory against a Grosvenor outfit, who had put 37 points on Antrim Grammar in the previous round.
McClintock was delighted with the win and, in particular, the manner in which his players had executed the game plan.
“We went down with a game plan and the boys carried it out effectively,” said the coach.
“All credit to the players, they did exactly what we aimed to do. They put in strong individual performances and came together as a team.
“I spoke to the boys at half-time and told them we have controlled the game and played all the rugby. I told them the tries and points will come if we kept doing what we were doing and remained patient.
“That’s what happened in the second half. The forwards were outstanding as a pack in terms of workrate around the park.”
