Bective Rangers (7th) v Dungannon (8th), Donnybrook

These two venerable clubs go head to head at Donnybrook on Saturday and both of them need to kick off this three-game block with a win.

Both sides have won three and lost four to date, but Dungannon did pick up an encouraging win over MU Barnhall last time out. However, home advantage should prove crucial for the hosts.

MU Barnhall (9th) v Greystones (3rd), Maynooth University

The college campus plays host to Ulster Bank League rugby this weekend with Greystones the visitors.

MU Barnhall are having a difficult season with only two wins from their seven games to date. ‘Stones are well placed in third and will look to build on their last victory to keep the pressure on the top two.

Rainey Old Boys (6th) v Highfield (2nd), Hatrick Park

Rainey Old Boys put Greystones to the pin of their collar in the last round of games, picking up a losing bonus point along the way. Can they go one better against second-placed Highfield on Saturday?

The Cork outfit beat table toppers City of Derry in their last outing and will not want to lose that momentum coming into this key stage of the the season.

Seapoint (10th) v City of Derry (1st), Kilbogget Park

Bottom side Seapoint have yet to win in the league and it does not look like things will get any easier on Saturday when pacesetters City of Derry come to Kilbogget Park.

The Ulster side remain three points clear at the top of the table despite losing to Highfield last time out. An away win looks the likely result here.

Sunday’s Well (4th) v Armagh (5th), Irish Independent Park

The ‘Well’s win over Seapoint kept them steady in fourth place after the last round of games. Armagh actually slipped to fifth despite their victory over Bective Rangers.

Level on points in the table, the home side have a points difference of +15 while the visitors are +13. Evenly matched then for this clash at Irish Independent Park on Saturday afternoon.
