Cork Con and Clontarf were both on the road to Limerick and it proved a succesful if hard fought trip. Con beat Garryowen by 11 – 12 with four penalties from the boot of Richie Lane. In a contest which saw three Garryowen players sin-binned, Lane’s assured kicking secured a revenge of sorts for Con for last weekend’s Munster Senior Cup final defeat.

Clontarf scored a lat brace to beat reigning Champions Shannon by a single point allowing UL Bohs to leapfrog their Limerick neighbours into third spot with a 24 – 1o win in Dublin over St. Marys.

With derby wins for Lansdowne over Blackrock and Dungannon over Belfast Harlequins it was an “away day” that sees them in real contention only four points behind the leaders. In all the top seven sides are only separated by four points.

…The title race hots up in Divison 3 as Ballynahinch are finally beaten…

Ballynahinch still lead division three by two points, but they finally lost a game in the AIB League. Second place Instonians were the team to do it with a 20 – 14 win over the ‘Hinch, though with an extra game played Inst. will need to continue their wiining ways to peg them back further.

With Wanderers, Nenagh Ormond and Rainey Old Boys all recording wins on the road the pressure is still on for the top four places. Banbridge slip down the list slightly as they lost by two points to Wanderers.
