Galwegians will look to bounce back from defeat straight away in Ulster Bank League Division 1A when they travel to Old Belvedere tomorrow (2.30).
'Wegians fell to a 32-21 defeat against Terenure last weekend, failing to pick up a losing bonus point, although they led 9-5 at half-time in Lakelands Park - Aidan Moynihan kicked three first-half penalties.
Their ill-discipline cost them after the break, as Sean O'Brien and Brian Murphy saw yellow.
Their pack won a penalty try and Paddy Finn also crossed the whitewash, but it wasn't enough, and they face another difficult trip to Dublin tomorrow.
In 1B, Buccaneers host Blackrock College at Dubarry Park. Buccs were involved in a titanic 42-38 defeat at Old Wesley last weekend.
Rory O'Connor touched down twice, and Kolo Kiripati, Alan Gaughan and Shane Layden also got tries. However, the hosts fought back from a 35-17 half-time deficit to win a ten-try classic.
In 2A, Corinthians need a win against Malone at Gibson Park tomorrow. Last weekend's 33-13 loss away to Banbridge was their second in a row on their return to the third tier.
In 2C, Sligo are away to Boyne in Shamrock Lodge as they look for a much-needed win. They were well beaten by 45-14 at home to Kanturk last time out.
