Kick-off 2.30pm unless stated -
Ards (12th) v Portadown (11th), Hamilton Park
It looks set to be evenly poised between these two Ulster clubs this weekend. Ports are two points ahead but have played one game less than Ards and so look the more likely to take the spoils. Ards picked up their first win of the season last time out with a tight victory over Naas.
Instonians (4th) v Midleton (1st), Shaw's Bridge
It may be a long road from Towns Park to Shaw's Bridge but this could be well worth the trip for the neutral. Both sides are unbeaten in the league and 'Inst have played a game less. Clem Boyd's men have conceded an average of just eight points per game, making them a tough team to breakdown. Home advantage could prove decisive in this table-topping clash.
Naas (15th) v County Carlow (16th), Forenaughts
This Leinster derby sees both sides in the red zone and without a win so far this season. Naas have managed to secure three losing bonus points to Carlow's one. Naas, coached by Kiwi Andy Wood, lost to Ards last time out while County Carlow, with Australian Jason Jones at the helm, were well beaten by new leaders Midelton.
Nenagh Ormond (5th) v Banbridge (8th), New Ormond Park
Two wins and a draw for the Tipp side sees them two points ahead of Banbridge in Division 3. The draw came against Barnhall last time out while the County Down club, with former Ulster and Ireland prop Simon Best now part of their committe, come into this game on the back of wins over Naas and Carlow, having lost their first two games.
