It's Cork versus Limerick once again as Cork Con and Young Munster clash in a re-run of last season's Ulster Bank League Division 1A semi-final at Temple Hill tomorrow afternoon (2.30pm).
On that occasion Cork Con came out victorious on a 22-16 scoreline, and after their 20-16 win away to St Mary's College, they will be gunning to make it two from two.
Meanwhile, Young Munster were unlucky to lose their opening fixture, a ten-try epic encounter at home to Old Belvedere, which finished 36-35.
Munster back-row Robin Copeland made a big impact for the Cookies, and they could well have his services to call upon once more as he recovers from a couple of niggles.
Elsewhere, Garryowen were defeated 32-25 by Lansdowne at Dooradoyle. The Limerick men travel to face Old Belvedere at Anglesea Road in Round 2.
In Division 1B, UL Bohemians will hope to build on their massive 41-10 Munster derby win over Dolphin last weekend. They host Ballynahinch at Thomond Park.
Dolphin will hope to bounce back with a tricky away tie against Old Wesley in Donnybrook. Shannon also lost in the first round and they make the journey to Dubarry Park for a meeting with Buccaneers. UCC will want their first win when they play Galwegians in Crowley Park.
In Division 2A, Nenagh Ormond and Cashel face off in the big Tipperary derby under lights at New Ormond Park tonight. Highfield travel to take on Malone and Sunday's Well host Blackrock.
In 2B, Old Crescent are away to MU Barnhall, while Thomond are at home against Bective Rangers. In the bottom tier, Bruff host Midleton and Kanturk are at home to Seapoint.
