League leaders Young Munster will look to cement their place at the top of the Ulster Bank League Division 1A when they clash with Garryowen, in the huge Limerick derby under lights at Tom Clifford Park this evening.
Young Munster moved two points clear of Lansdowne with their fifth win from seven outings this season last time out, but they will face another very stern test from their city rivals who are seventh in the standings.
It is a mouth-watering clash that will go a long way to deciding who is Munster's top club this season.
Elsewhere in Division 1A, fourth-placed Cork Con travel to take on Dublin University at College Park tomorrow - Cork Con are just five points off Young Munster in the table.
In Division 1B, there is a Cork derby where UCC host Dolphin at Mardyke tonight. UL Bohemians slipped five points behind leaders Buccaneers, after the Athlone men beat Galwegians last weekend, but they have a game in hand on them, and face off with Naas in that fixture at Forenaughts tomorrow.
The other game in 1B sees Shannon and Old Wesley clash at Thomond Park. Shannon are bottom of the table and need a victory against the Dublin outfit.
In 2A, there is a Munster derby with Sunday's Well playing host to Nenagh Ormond at Irish Independent Park. Cashel and Highfield provide the other all-Munster tie in Spafield. In Division 2B, Old Crescent are at home against Thomond at Rosbrien, in another Munster derby.
In the bottom tier, Bruff make the long journey to take on Bangor away from home. Midleton are at home against Navan, while Kanturk have a difficult trip, where they face Rainey on the road.
