Queens have a big 52-7 win over Malone in the Ulster Senior Cup

Queens welcomed Malone, a division above them in the AIL, to Upper Malone on Saturday for a Senior Cup Quarter Final.

A delayed kick off in the McCrea Cup semi final, coupled with injury time and the need to relocate to the main car park and find a space meant that I missed the first 20 minutes.

By the time that I had sat down Queens were leading 19-0 through tries by Andrew McGrath, Conor McKee and Robbie Johnston and 2 James Humphreys conversions.

Playing with the wind, Malone struggled with possession, with their heavier pack given the run-around by Queens more mobile unit.

They eventually registered a try on 36 minutes, by Dave Cave, converted by Callum Smith, to bring the score to 19-7.

Queens had the last say in the 1st half, when McKee sniped in for his 2nd try to leave Queens leading 24-7 at the break.

Playing with the wind Queens attacked from deep and had a productive half.

Ben Heath dots down under the posts

Tries by David Whitten, 55 minutes, McGrath, 57 minutes, Ben Heath, 67 minutes and Simon McMaster, 80 minutes, all converted by Humphreys, moved Queens out to a commanding 52-7 victory and a semi final place on 16th April.
