Previews of the All ireland League games taking place this weekend

DIVISION 2A (All start tom 2.30, unless stated)

BLACKROCK COLLEGE v OLD WESLEY, Stradbrook

THIS is one to whet the appetite as second host first with 'Rock coach Emmet Farrell away on Leinster duty at Wasps.

The leaders' coach Morgan Lennon opts for Josh Hinde in the second row and Robert Emo on the openside.

BECTIVE RANGERS v CASHEL, Donnybrook

RANGERS will have back-rower in Niall O'Brien for his seasonal debut and Alex Kelleher back at centre, although captain Ian Cullinane has been ruled out.

NAAS v QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY, Forenoughts

THE Kildare club will be unchanged for the visit of the Belfast students.

NUIM BARNHALL v SEAPOINT, Parsonstown

DIRECTOR of Rugby Dennis Bowes will expect nothing less than four points, maybe even five, as fifth entertains last on the log. Seapoint have not won since November. Something positive needs to happen soon or they could be sliding out of the division.

SKERRIES v CITY OF DERRY, Holmpatrick

THE North Dublin club is on an upward curve and promotion is an achievable option as they hunt a sixth win in nine rounds.

DIVISION 2B

KANTURK v TULLAMORE, Knocknacolan (2.0)

THE Offaly first-timers have been able to maintain their push for immediate graduation under experienced coach Geoff Kenny.

BOYNE v SLIGO, Shamrock Lodge

NIALL RONAN has had an uncomfortable time as Director of Rugby as Boyne have slumped to one win in eight and second from bottom.

GREYSTONES v RICHMOND, Dr Hickey Park

COACH Kevin Lewis will slip Shane Mulvaney into the front-row for injured tight-head Ronan Kearney.

HIGHFIELD v DLSP, WOODLEIGH PARK

SALMO' have Declan O'Neill back at hooker after being out for three months with injury and Cormac O'Leary could come in at fly-half.

NAVAN v BRUFF, Balreask Old

THE Meath club is sitting on a 50% return with four wins from eight to reside in mid-table comfort.

OLD CRESCENT v WANDERERS, Rosbrien

WANDERERS must have taken a lot out of their Leinster Shield final win over Greystones last Saturday as they look to take an upward trajectory.
