Thomond Park will host back-to-back SEAT Schools Senior Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday.

The Limerick venue will host the clash between Castletroy College and PBC at 2.0 before treble-chasing Crescent take on Glenstal Abbey at 4.0 in what promises to be a hugely exciting day of rugby.

The first game of the quarter-final stage will take place on Tuesday with Rockwell facing St Munchin's in Clanwillam FC at 3.0. Dooradoyle hosts the Ardscoil Rís v CBC game later that day with a 3.30 kick-off.

There will be an open draw following the quarter-final ties to decide the semi-final pairings. There were wins for Castletroy College, Ardscoil Rís, Crescent Colleg and Rockwell in the opening round of the Schools Senior Cup last week with the four winners given home quarter-finals.

The first round of the Schools Junior Cup kicked off earlier this week.
