Richmond (14th) v Old Crescent (12th), Richmond Park, Friday, December 19, 7.30pm

A floodlit derby to kick off the action in Division 2B as Richmond host Old Crescent.

The visitors are eight points ahead with three wins to Richmond’s one. Form does favour the away side but you can never tell in a derby game.

Tullamore (2nd) v Navan (10th), Spollanstown, Friday, December 19, 8pm

A Towns Cup style encounter as Tullamore hope to keep the pressure on Highfield at the top of the table.

Navan are by no means out of the running as only three points separate them from Armagh in fourth place. It promises to be a cracking game with plenty at stake.

Midleton (6th) v Kanturk (11th), Towns Park, 2pm

East Cork against north Cork. This one will be tough. There are only three points between them in the league standings, demonstrating just how tight this division has been so far this season.

The visitors won their last game but form counts for nothing when Cork pride is on the line.

Sunday’s Well (9th) v Boyne (15th), Irish Independent Park, 2pm

Sunday’s Well are 15 points clear of their visitors this weekend and still challenging for the top half of the table.

There are seven clubs within three points of each other so every win counts. A home victory is on the cards here.

Wanderers (8th) v Highfield (1st), Merrion Road, 2pm

Wanderers are one of the chasing pack between Sligo on 23 points and Navan on 19.

Highfield are five points clear at the top of the table and will aim to finish 2014 in that position. An away triumph is on the cards at Merrion Road.

Ards (16th) v Armagh (4th), Hamilton Park

Ards are rooted to the bottom of the table and without a win to date in the league.

That is unlikely to change on Saturday in this Ulster derby as Armagh are ticking along nicely in fourth place. An away win is expected here.

De La Salle Palmerston (13th) v Greystones (5th), Kirwan Park

A good game in prospect at Kirwan Park on Saturday afternoon albeit that ‘Salmo have only managed two wins to date.

Greystones are motoring well with four try-scoring bonuses and will put serious pressure on their hosts. Another away win is in the offing.
