Cashel (1st) v Malone (4th), Spafield, 1.30
Five games and five wins for the Tipperary side, not least the all-important derby win over Nenagh Ormond last week.

The one chink in the armour is they have only picked up one bonus point to date – but then they are a scarce commodity in this tightly fought division.

Malone are six points behind thanks to their three wins and three bonus points. The home side should still be strong enough to go six from six.

Banbridge (2nd) v Naas (3rd), Rifle Park
A crucial game in the top half of the table with only a point between the protagonists on Saturday.

Results elsewhere will have a bearing but both clubs will be keen to keep their fate in their own hands and stay in the top four.

The Bann lost narrowly in their last game while Naas enjoyed a home win over Queens.

Corinthians (9th) v Skerries (5th), Corinthian Park
An interesting tie as the home side need a win to climb out of the danger zone, while the visitors are ready to pounce and claim a top four slot.

The Galway side enjoyed a good win over Nenagh Ormond in their last outing while Skerries pipped Banbridge in a sixty point game.

An away win.

Queens (6th) v UCC (7th), Dub Lane
A mid table clash for this intervarsity game with plenty at stake.

The visitors are a point ahead in the table thanks to the losing bonus point they picked up against Cashel in their last game.

Both sides have shown topsy turvy form as they settle into the season. A bell weather game in Dub lane.

Thomond (10th) v Nenagh Ormond (8th), Liam Fitzgerald Park
A Munster derby and a key game for both clubs as they try and fight their way to a run of form.

The home side have lost four out of five to date but they showed some real spirit on the road to Malone in their last outing.

The visitors travel on the back of a loss to Tipp rivals Cashel – can they bounce back?
