With Belfast Harlequins breathing down their necks,Buccaneers need to see off the challenge of Ballymena if they are to make the play offs in Division One of the AIB League.
Buccs are four points clear of Harlequins who finish with a home game against a Shannon side who have nothing to play for but pride.
Buccaneers’ opponents on Saturday, Ballymena could still claim a home semi final place if they were to win so it will be all to play for at Ericsson Park.
At the bottom of the table the interest will center on who will join Terenure in Division Two next season. UCD and UL Bohemians are both on 21 points, three behind fourth from bottom, Co Carlow. But UCD have what might be considered the comfort of a visit to Lakelands while Bohs and Co Carlow meet in Thomond Park. That would seem to suggest that the students will survive with the other pair left to fight the relegation battle. However, Terenure might just have a sting left in their tail and if they do and if Bohs win then UCD will go down with their hosts.
