De La Salle's points difference keeps them on top of the three other teams on 14 points, with Wesley ahead of Queens, who lost 22-18 to Bective, and Corinthians, who were defeated 9-6 at home to Trinity, the students moving into fifth, a point behind the top four.

Rainey lead the way in Divison 2B after a five-try 36-9 win over Sunday's Well, while Cashel are loving life in senior rugby after their 21-3 win in Naas. Their Tippeary rivals Nenagh Ormond are third, with Conor Brislane scoring two tries in a 40-15 rout of Connemara and Banbridge's 25-6 win over Highfield in Cork leaves them fourth.
