Marian hope to soar against Eagles

This weekend, the Nivea For Men's SuperLeague will see UCD Marian welcome reigning league and cup champions, UL Eagles to Dublin.

The Limerick side will be desperate to make amends for their disappointing result against UCC Demons as they recorded their first loss of the season, whereas UCD Marian look to refocus as they fell to Dublin rivals DCU Saints after leading for the majority of the game.

On the other side of the Liffey, Killester will face Bord Gáis Neptune in Clontarf.

Killester enter the game coming off a strong win against Dublin Inter last weekend.

On Monday, UCC Demons will take on DCU Saints in Cork. Demons will be brimming with confidence after their impressive victory over last year's champions, UL Eagles.

The Cork side now sit at the top of the table as they have yet to lose a game. Equally, Saints will be up for the challenge as they beat southsiders Marian to maintain a joint second position with UL Eagles.

In the Nivea Women's SuperLeague, Team Montenotte Hotel Cork will welcome old rivals DCU Mercy to Glanmire tonight. Having had last weekend off the Cork side will be eager to leave everything out on the floor when they meet DCU.

Both Meteors and Singleton SuperValu Brunell have a weekend double. Meteors will welcome Ulster Rockets this evening before they take on Singleton SuperValu Brunell for the second time in two weeks tomorrow.

Brunell will see Killester in Dublin tonight before they travel to the southside to take on Meteors tomorrow. With Brunell nipping a win over Meteors by three points the previous week, both teams will be raring for the clash.
