There is a massive Munster derby in the Ulster Bank League Division 1A tomorrow when Cork Con welcome Young Munster to Temple Hill (2.30).

Con are fourth in the standings but are level on points with their rivals from Limerick, and only ahead of them on points difference.

When these sides met in November, it was an 11-10 win for Young Munster, and a similar win here would push them back into the play-off positions.

Elsewhere in the top division, Garryowen, who are third, welcome Old Belvedere to Dooradoyle.

In Division 1B, Shannon can push themselves into play-off contention if they can overcome basement side Belfast Harlequins at Thomond Park.

Dolphin have the difficult trip to College Park where they clash with Dublin University, and lowly UL Bohs face an tricky task against leaders St Mary's in Templeville Road.

In Division 2A there is a floodlit Friday game at New Ormond Park, where Munster rivals Nenagh Ormond and Thomond face off.

Cashel travel to Malone, and UCC host Queen's.

In 2B, Highfield make the journey to take on Seapoint, and Sunday's Well are at home against Bective Rangers.

In the bottom tier, Old Crescent are away to Wanderers. Kanturk host Navan and Midleton are home to Bruff.
