Highfield lead the way at the top of Division 2B with Tullamore nine points behind and a chasing pack a further five points back. The race is on for promotion and survival.
Boyne (13th) v Armagh (3rd), Shamrock Lodge
Both sides come into this match on the back of a win from their last round of games.
Boyne got a much needed win over Richmond in the red zone while Armagh kept themselves in the hunt at the top of the table with a five point win over ‘Salmo.
You’d have to back the visitors but they’ll need an improved performance to achieve the win.
Bruff (7th) v Midleton (6th), Kilballyowen Park
Just a point between the two clubs as they clash on Saturday and both still in the hunt at the business end of the table.
Bruff edged Old Crescent in a low scoring affair last time out while Midleton were beaten by league leaders Highfield.
All set up for a tight game in Kilballyowen Park on Saturday then.
Greystones (5th) v Kanturk (12th), Dr. Hickey Park
Greystones are another side in the pack at the top of the table, despite losing to Tullamore in their last game.
Kanturk’s 12th place belies some terrific performances this season – two try bonuses and four losing bonuses back that up.
A home win the likely outcome but it could be a tight one.
Navan (9th) v Highfield (1st), Balreask Old
Navan welcome the unbeaten league leaders to Balreask on Saturday, hoping to make build on their win over Sligo in their last game.
Highfield had a strong win over Midleton in their last game and should be favourites for the win again this weekend.
An away win on the cards.
Old Crescent (8th) v Ards (16th), Rosbrien
Mixed fortunes for Old Crescent in their last two games – a loss to Bruff followed a win over Wanderers.
They welcome bottom side Ards this weekend.
The Ulster side have garnered just a single point so far in the campaign and will look to rebuild next season.
Richmond (15th) v Sunday’s Well (4th), Richmond Park
Second from bottom and trailing Boyne by six points, Richmond are, like Ards, staring at relegation unless they can turn things around.
Saturday offers little solace as Sunday’s Well are in the top 4 and tipping along well.
An away win on the cards.
Sligo (11th) v DLSP (13th), Hamilton Park
Sligo’s four wins and two draws has them on 23 points, eight clear of their visitors on Saturday.
They were well beaten at home last weekend by a fired up Navan side. Will they have the measure of their visitors?
‘Salmo made Armagh work for their win two weeks ago, more of that and they could take the points.
Tullamore (2nd) v Wanderers (10th), Spollanstown
Seven wins and seven try bonuses is a fantastic return for Tullamore so far this season. Keep it up and they are in with a promotion shot.
Wanderers appear to be safe in mid table but will have ambitions for more next season.
A home win and the midland club still in 2nd place.
