AIL at a glance
Adam D'Arcy (Ballynahinch)
While there were some big wins in the top tier, full-back D'Arcy's amazing five-try haul in his side's rout of Thomond was the most eye-catching display of the weekend.
One to watch
Ian Madigan (Blackrock)
The out-half eased some Blackrock nerves by kicking all of their goals in their win at Young Munster. The Leinster man's hands and speed are real attributes.
Number of the week
1 Old Belvedere's six-try defeat of Shannon on Saturday evening was their first ever AIL victory over the Limerick men.
