Against a much-improved and dangerous Irish side, Park played with a new-found pace to record their first win of the season.
After a dominating first half where Park lead by 24 points before conceding a late try, and extending that lead to 34 – 5 early in the second period, Park suffered a second half scare before pulling away in the final quarter.
With a patched up side, Park were overmatched by one of the Division’s top teams. With several players unavailable, it was always going to be a difficult matchup especially in the pack where Park were fortunate to find 8 able bodies.
An improved second half performance was not enough to come back against their first league opponents, but a last gasp try by Husselbee ensured that Park at least came away with a bonus point.
