There are six uncapped players in the Ireland squad for the summer tour to North America that was named this morning. An Emerging Ireland squad has also been selected for the Tblisi Cup in Georgia.
Kilballyowen: Bruff 19-19 Ards.
Kilkenny out themselves into pole position to advance to the AIB league when they defeated Monivea 34-5 in Foulkstown. The visitor's hopes were not helped by the loss of flnaker Kieran Concarr who hurt himself in the pre-match warm-up and the home sides scored late tries to earn themselves a valuable bonus point.
In the other game played in Co Limerick, Bruff and Ards drew 19 points apiece.
