There’s a full round of fixtures in the Energia All-Ireland League this weekend including a double header in Stradbrook as Blackrock host Old Wesley in the Men’s and Wicklow in the Women’s and a feature live game from Cork as Ballincollig host Cooke.
UL Bohs (1st) are unbeaten in the league so far this season, they’re at home to Suttonians (6th) this weekend. Railway Union (2nd) are at home to Galwegians (7th). Our live feature game this week comes from Tanner Park as Ballincollig (5th) host Cooke (8th).
It’s tight at the top in Division 1A and with the prospect of a home semi-final for the playoffs there’s plenty at stake in the coming weeks; with that in mind game of the day has to be the meeting Lansdowne (3rd) and Terenure (4th).
The top spot seems nailed on for St. Mary’s but the chasing pack is wide open with just five points between Ol Belvedere (2nd) and Naas (7th). The match between Blackrock (3rd) and Old Wesley (4th) could see some interesting changes in the table come the final whistle at Stradbrook.
Nenagh Ormond (1st) are ten points clear in Division 2A; they’re at home to Ballymena (7th) on Saturday afternoon. Match of the day in Division 2A has to be the meeting of Navan (9th) and Malone (10th) as the battle to avoid relegation looms.
It’s first against second as Instonias host Wanderers in Division 2B. Meanwhile the bottom two sides face difficult assigments with Dolphin (9th) at home to Rainey (5th) and Belfast Harlequins (10th) at home to Galway Corinthians (3rd).
First plays third in 2C as Clogher Valley (1st) are at home to Bruff (3rd). Bottom of the table Ballina (10th) are at home to Midleton (6th) while Bangor (9th) face a difficult trip Galwegians (2nd)
