Both sides are still in big relegation trouble with Terenure just one place and one point above Galwegians in the standings. And with just two rounds of rugby remaining it's a massive game for both sides.

Paddy Finn scored a try for Galwegians and Aidan Moynihan starred but they fell to a 32-21 defeat at Lakelands Park in the return fixture on September 19.

In Division 1B, there are also two rounds remaining with Buccaneers hosting Old Wesley at Dubarry Park this weekend.

The Pirates are fifth in the standings, with Old Wesley one point ahead of them as they look to finish the season with a late flourish.

In Division 2A, Corinthians go into their final day clash away to Queen's University in Dub Lane knowing victory could secure their status for next season.

Corinthians were bottom of the standings for much of the season but three wins in a row may have rescued them; however, Queen's are one of the in-form sides in the league.

In the bottom tier, Sligo also have a thrilling climax to their season when they host Navan at Hamilton Park tomorrow. They also need to win to ensure safety this term.
