WANDERERS' heavily publicised Aviva Stadium kick-off fell victim to the heavy rain in Dublin on Friday night and Saturday morning and, having been forced to move across to Merrion Road, their disappointment was compounded by a 21-6 defeat to Nenagh Ormond.
Rainey lead Division 2B after securing the bonus point in their 39-3 hammering of Ards, while Cashel got their senior rugby life off to a winning start at Suttonians.
Boyne pipped fellow newcomers Sligo 21-20, Armagh were beaten 9-6 by Sunday's Well and there were wins for Highfield, Banbridge and Connemara.
DLSP are sitting pretty at the top of the Division 2A table after a 26-6 win over Thomond, but they are joined on four points by six other teams who began with a win.
Dublin University got off to a successful start with a 21-8 victory over Greystones, while City of Derry saw off Terenure with a 27-23 win at Judge's Road.
Malone were too strong for Clonakilty and ran out 24-14 winners, while Queen's saw off Instonians with a 28-21 win.
Seapoint also started with a 21-17 win over Bective, while Old Wesley were held 14-14 at home by Old Crescent.
