Last season's finalists beat Old Belvedere 20-14 to move fifth in the top tier after five games. Graeme Lawler scored the only try while five penalties from Tomas Quinlan proved key.

Young Munster are joint-top with Dublin University ahead of their clash with St Mary's College at Templeville Road. The Cookies beat UCD 37-31 in a fantastic game last weekend.

Garryowen are way down in ninth prior to their away game in the Belfield Bowl against UCD. Garryowen lost 27-14 at home against Dublin University last time out.

In Division 1B, UL Bohemians can streak clear at the top if they get the better of second-placed Buccaneers at Dubarry Park tomorrow.

UL Bohs won 25-15 at home to Ballymena in UL last Saturday - Andy Rowsome, Brian Walsh, Jamie McNamara and Joe Murray scored the tries. UCC are up to seventh ahead of their away day against Naas at Forenaughts.

There is a massive all-Munster tie between Shannon and Dolphin at Thomond Park. Shannon are bottom of the table with just three points, one point behind Dolphin. And with eighth-placed Galwegians four points further clear, it is a crucial game.

In 2A, Highfield clash with Blackrock. Cashel face Belfast Harlequins, and Nenagh Ormond are against Banbridge. In 2B, Old Crescent play Armagh and Thomond face Skerries.

In the bottom tier, Bruff play Tullamore, Kanturk face Bangor and Midleton play Seapoint.
