Munsters are fifth in the standings and will be looking for a favour from Clontarf, who travel to Ballynahinch, in order to overtake the northerners and claim that final play-off place.

Ballynahinch are two points clear and with Old Belvedere, Cork Con and UCD still in with a chance, it promises to be nail-biting.

Con sit seventh and host UCD; the Corkmen were in pole position to take fourth last week but lost 43-28 at Clontarf.

Dolphin will be hoping for a boost after being relegated last week as they travel to St Mary's.

Division 1B leaders Garryowen will be promoted straight back to the top flight if they beat second-placed Galwegians in Galway.

Seventh-placed Shannon travel to relegated Malone, while UL Bohemians host relegated Corinthians.

In Division 2A, Cashel host Skerries, Nenagh Ormond welcome Rainey OB, Thomond are home to Naas and UCC host Blackrock College.

In 2B, Bruff are home to Boyne, Old Crescent welcome Navan, Richmond host Kanturk, Sunday's Well entertain Highfield and Midleton travel to Wanderers.
