The Ireland Under-19 squad to face Australia Schools at Ravenhill on Saturday week (December 14) has been announced.
Greystones have romped to the top of the AIB League Division Two courtesy of Sunday's 45-15 defeat of Bective Rangers.
'Stones secured only their fourth win in ten league encounters with Bective as they outscored their hosts at Donnybrook by six tries to two.
Wingers Ronan O'Carroll (2) and Darren McKenna, full-back David McKechnie, centre Cian McNaughton and flanker John O'Beirne shared out the tries for the Wicklow men with out-half James Power kicking six conversions and a penalty.
Full-back Tommy Sheehy and Ed Saul crossed the whitewash for Bective.
Meanwhile, at Shannonvale Cross, leaders Barnhall were surprisingly beaten 32-14 by last season's Division Three champions Clonakilty. Tries from replacement full-back Dave Cookson, winger John O'Donnell, centre Paul Dillon and flanker Eoin Scannell helped 'Clon' get a bonus point to boot.
Full-back Dave O'Brien bagged two tries in Highfield's 24-22 defeat of De La Salle Palmerston in Kilternan, while winger Kevin Barden took his try tally for the league campaign to seven with a brace of touchdowns in Old Belvedere's 28-3 win at Midleton.
The capital duel between Suttonians and Dublin University went the way of the students - 20-15 - as out-half Johnny Watt kicked ten points and prop Andy King and winger Killian Stafford scored a try apiece at the John J McDowell Grounds.
Thomond handed Malone their third straight league defeat as tries from flanker Pat Deedigan and scrum half David Guerin saw the Limerick men register a 13-10 victory at Fitzgerald Park.
UCC and Old Crescent shared the spoils in a 16-16 draw at the Mardyke, while 23 points from the boot of out-half Wayne Murphy (seven penalties and a conversion) steered Young Munster to a 28-13 triumph over County Carlow at Clifford Park. Centre Eamonn Broderick grabbed the Munsters' try, with Ross Barbour (try) and Greg Jacob (conversion and two penalties) scoring for the midlanders.
