Old Wesley may well have turned their season around with an unlikely win over Banbridge in round four of Division 1B.

Morgan Lennon's men were able to get out to a fine start from tries by Lachlan Anderson and Tom Kiersey and mount the commitment and energy to hold off the previous League leaders 15-8 at Rifle Park.

To make it count in the long-term, they will have to follow-up at home to Naas in Donnybrook this evening.

Afterall, Old Wesley are still very deeply involved in the lower-half of the Division at third-from-bottom.

In contrast, Naas are lurking in second, just one point off current leaders Malone.

They did their campaign a power of good by defeating Ballynahinch 24-17 in Forenaughts last Saturday with captain Paul Tolofua leading the way for Johne Murphy's men.
