Following their home defeats at the weekend against Ballymena and Cork Con respectively, DLSP or Co Carlow are now facing the prospect of joining Young Munster in Division Two.
11/03/02.DLSP, beaten 28-8, are no strangers to this situation having struggled to avoid relegation in the past two seasons since winning promotion as runners-up to Dungannon in 1998/1999. They have, arguably, the easier run in with an away game next weekend against St Mary's (still in with a chance of the play offs) followed by a home tie with Galwegians. Co Carlow travel to UCD next Saturday to take on a side that still harbour hopes of a play off spot and their last game is in Oak Park against Ballymena.
Looking forward to locking horns with France, Conor Murray said: "I know with the type of players and type of game Guy Noves likes to play, they can throw up anything. We've got to be ready for any style of game, an offloading game, a free-flowing game."
