Ireland A beat the England Saxons to win the Churchill Cup

Ireland A won the Churchill Cup tournament with a convincing 49-22 final victory over England Saxons in Denver, Colorado this past weekend.

In the sweltering heat, Declan Kidneys side ran in six tries in total after they led 20-12 at halftime after Devon Toner and Isaac Boss crossed in the first half.

Sean Cronin increased Irealands lead just 24 seconds into the second half, followed by Felix Jones, Johne Murphy, and John Muldoon all notching up tries.

Jonathan Sexton kicked three penalties, slotted a drop goal, and converted three tries for the Irish, with Fergus McFadden converting another two.

The try of the match came when Jones collected a high ball superbly before bursting away, feeding McFadden, who then found Murphy.

Ben Woods and Tom Varndell scored for the Saxons, who also had four penalties kicked by Steven Myler. The Varndell try was a late consolation, but it was the Irish who had all to celebrate as they picked up the title of Churchill Cup winners for 2009.
