There is divisional and league status at stake this weekend as Greystones host Naas and Clonakilty face Richmond in the Ulster Bank League play-offs.
ULSTER BANK LEAGUE: DIVISION 2A/2B PLAYOFFS: Saturday, April 20
Kick-off 2.30pm unless stated –
Greystones v Naas, Dr. Hickey Park
Greystones last two matches saw them beat De La Salle Palmerston and Queen’s University, but it was not enough to lift them out of the relegation play-off slot.
They now host fellow Leinster club Naas now in the battle to retain their Division 2A status.
Naas have had a strong season in Division 2B with twelve wins and five try-scoring bonus points. They lost out on points difference for an automatic promotion slot.
‘Stones will have plenty of support at home but Naas are capable of doing a job in County. Wicklow. A tough one to call.
Clonakilty v Richmond, Shannonvale Cross
Ulster Bank League status is at stake in this Munster club derby. Clonakilty just could not muster a late season rally and were eclipsed by Sunday’s Well and Ards.
They managed two wins and two draws in the league this season.
Richmond finished second in the Provincial League Championship to Tullamore. They beat Monivea and Portadown in the Round Robin Series on the road to this play-off, having topped the qualifying league in Munster with a strong season. Form favours the visitors.
