Corinthians completed their great escape in Division 2A of the Ulster Bank League last weekend as they made it four wins on the trot to stay in the third tier - and Galwegians will look to do likewise in Division 1A on April 16.

Only a win will do for Galwegians as they also require results elsewhere to go their way. Anything other than a victory will see them face off against Trinity in the promotion-relegation play-off.

Galwegians must beat an in-form Cork Con outfit and hope that Old Belvedere can do them a favour at Terenure. A losing bonus point could be enough for Terenure to secure to their place in 1A for next season.

Galwegians lost ground on their rivals last weekend, when Terenure defeated them 14-10 in Crowley Park.

It was an agonising defeat for Matt Brown's men, which was made all the worse considering they had led 10-7 up to the 74th minute, when Jake Swaine pounced to score an intercept try.

In Division 1B, Buccaneers are set to finish on a high note away to Shannon next weekend, with fourth place in their sights. Promotion may be out of reach but a promising season looks in store for 2016-17.

In Division 2C Sligo finished second from bottom after a 22-15 victory over Navan on the final day.
