Kick-off 2.30pm unless stated -
Belfast Harlequins (3rd) v Bruff (6th), Deramore Park
Belfast Harlequins were knocked out of the AIB Cup last weekend and they also lost their previous league outing to Bective so they will have a real incentive to get back to winning ways. Bruff are only a point behind them in the table and come into the game on the back of a good win over UCD last time out in the league.
Dublin University (14th) v Greystones (13th), College Park
The students are without a win so far in the league, while Greystones have only managed one win in four. That win came against second-from-bottom Malone last time out. Both sides badly need a win to kickstart their seasons and pull them out of the red zone.
Highfield (11th) v De La Salle Palmerston (4th), Woodleigh Park
Home advantage will need to tell for Highfield if they are to take anything from this game. 'Salmo have already scored over 100 points this season with three wins out of four, and South African half-back Dustin Jinka keeping them ticking. Their only loss was in their last game against Wesley. Highfield drew with Thomond last time out and their sole win has come against Malone.
Lansdowne (1st) v Bective (5th), The RDS
