YOUNG Cork Constitution out-half Jack Crowley has won the December Try of the Month in the energia All-Ireland League.
The former Bandon Grammar School player picks up €250 for his debut try in the champions’ 35-19 win over Ballynahinch at Temple Hill and Crowley will also be in the frame for the overall Try of the Season award.
Crowley, who has played for Munster A, started and finished a flowing move which began deep in Con’s own 22 with scrum-half Duncan Williams also heavily involved.
Williams sets the move in motion with a pass to Crowley, who then flings out a long pass to full-back Greg Higgins, skipping out centres Niall Kenneally and Alex McHenry in the process.
Higgins gobbles up the ground to bring play close to half-way before parting to right wing Sean French, who eludes a couple of tackles until grounded just outside Hinch’s 22.
French does well to keep the ball alive by feeding the supporting McHenry, who also impressed in ensuring the move kept its momentum by off-loading to Williams.
He, then, pops off the scoring pass to Crowley, who races away to complete a thrilling attack.
Crowley also converted as he did to Rob Jermyn’s hat-trick the same afternoon and Kenneally’s try, too.
