Boyne (8th) v Old Crescent (1st), Shamrock Lodge
The Limerick side ran out convincing winners on a score line of 31 – 16 when last these sides met and fortunes haven’t changed much in the intervening months.

Old Crescent lead the way but they can’t quite shake off Tullamore so there will be no taking any fixture for granted.

An away win on the cards.

Dundalk (10th) v Wanderers (3rd), Mill Road
Dundalk will have winced when they saw the score from Sligo v Wanderers a few weeks back. The 3 all draw giving the western club an edge in the relegation fight.

The Louth club will have to fight hard to earn a similar result on Saturday. Wanderers will be primed to bounce back.

The Dublin side are still clear favourites.

Kanturk (7th) v Bruff (4th), Knocknacolon
A tough run of games for Kanturk; they had Tullamore last time out and now face a Bruff side pushing for a top four place and a shot at promotion.

The Cork side can ill afford too many losses at this stage in the season but a game in hand over the teams below them should mean they are safe.

A win for Bruff keeps them in the race, a loss opens the door for Navan.

Midleton (6th) v Sligo (9th), Towns Park
The Cork side won the reverse fixture 11 – 12 in Hamilton Park back in October. They’ve faced top four opposition in their last few outings and lost in all three.

Sligo gave themselves a real shot at survival with a draw against Wanderers – can they repeat the result or go one better on the road?

The home side must be favourites.

Navan (5th) v Tullamore (2nd), Balreask Old
A really interesting game in prospect on Saturday. These two sides know each other well from their days dogging it out for the Ulster Bank Junior Cup right through promotion to the league.

The midlands club are favourites going into this match but they won’t take anything for granted despite the 24 – 8 win back in October.

This is probably Navan’s last chance to make a play for the top four unless Bruff slip up in Kanturk.
