Munster second-row Liam Coombes scored the only try for Garryowen, who beat Young Munster 13-11 at Tom Clifford Park last weekend.

David O'Mahony and Jack Harrington kicked the penalties for Young Munster, while Neil Cronin replied as the hosts led 6-3 at half-time. But Coombes' try cancelled out the effort from Tom Goggin and Cronin's penalty and conversion, as Garryowen won.

Garryowen are fifth in the standings ahead of their clash with Terenure at Dooradoyle. Cork Con are third prior to their tie at home against Dublin University.

In Division 1B, UL Bohemians are second in the table and they clash with the students of UCC in UL this weekend.

Finbar Aherne scored the only try for UL Bohs as they slipped to a 13-10 defeat against Naas at Forenaughts last weekend.

The defeat means they missed out on the opportunity to challenge Buccaneers for top spot in the table and they are now four points behind in second.

Shannon are away to Galwegians at Crowley Park, and Dolphin host Ballynahinch at Irish Independent Park.

In Division 2A, Sunday's Well travel to take on Corinthians, Highfield host Banbridge. Nenagh Ormond are at home to Blackrock and Cashel are away to Queen's University.

In 2B, Old Crescent are away to Dungannon and Thomond host Greystones. Bruff play host to Rainey in Division 2C, Kanturk are at home against Boyne, and Midleton are away to Tullamore.
