Students standing in 'Tarf's title road

(All matches start tomorrow at 2.30 unless stated)


UCD v Clontarf, Belfield

The home win over previous leaders Old Belvedere last Friday night moves control of the League title firmly into the hands of 'Tarf.

Andy Wood's men are level on points with Belvo' with a game in hand – this is it – and a far superior points difference.

As banana skins go, this is as slippery a surface as they have left from three matches because Bobby Byrne's students have the capacity to break a game open.

Lansdowne v St Mary's College,

The Aviva Stadium

The reigning champions are locked in a fight for third against Cork Con and UCD, a long way behind the two frontrunners. They are finding out wearing the crown is more difficult than winning it.

St Mary's are one rung up on the ladder from dropping down into a relegation-promotion play-off. Their motivation should be even greater.
