BRUFF v INSTONIANS, Donnybrook, 2pm
Bruff have been consistenly good this season as the only unbeaten team across all three AIB League divisions.
Indeed, Eugene Murnane's men are the best defenders in the league's history - they set a new record when conceding only 56 points (six tries) during the 15-match regulation phase.
So it was no surprise that they kept Banbridge tryless in their 22-9 semi-final win at Kilballyowen Park last Saturday.
They are unbeaten in their last 20 league matches, kept seven teams to 'nil' during the campaign and are gunning for their second successive Division Three play-off title.
18-12 winners over Wanderers in last year's decider at Templeville Road, the Limerick outfit have been able to build on their success, year on year, and backboned by the Cahill brothers, Eoin, Brian and Tony, they are hungry for more silverware.
There in lies the essence of Bruff RFC. They are a family club and very proud of it. The majority of their squad have played with each other from underage level up.
There were three wins in the Community Games, two All-Ireland Under-16 titles and an Under-20 crown along the way, All-Ireland junior success followed and now they are really making a mark at senior level.
If the Cahills provide the attacking inspiration and clinical edge in the backs, hooker and captain Cathal O'Regan is the heartbeat of the current Bruff side.
He is part of a very formidable scrum that has frankly embarrassed some teams this season.
Prop David Horan, lock Diarmuid Murnane and number 8 Martin O'Rourke are just some of the forwards who have caught the eye in recent games.
Flanker Mike Carroll has scored six tries already this season and causes plenty of headaches in the loose, along with lock Alan 'Crusher' Bourke.
Brendan Deady, the last-gasp try scorer in last year's final, is an attack-minded full-back who has bagged eight touchdowns to date.
Winger Finbarr 'Istabraq' Hogan needs little introduction given his haul of 30 AIB League tries, eight of which were for Division Two finalists Young Munster.
Scorers against Banbridge, Paul O'Brien and Gary Leonard also know where the try line is and out-half Brian Cahill is a very able kicker and game-breaker with a good turn of pace.
This is Instonians' first play-off final since 2005 when they lost 39-20 to Greystones at Lansdowne Road.
