Buccs hunting their first win
Buccaneers begin Round 5 of the Ulster Bank League Division 1A this weekend still looking for their first win when they clash with Dublin University at Dubarry Park tomorrow.
It has been a difficult start to the season for the newly-promoted Athlone outfit, with defeats to Lansdowne, Garryowen, Young Munster and last time out, away to Clontarf at Castle Avenue.
Their woes have been compounded by their failure to pick up a bonus point in any of their games. And Buccaneers are now bottom of Division 1A, without a point, and four points behind tomorrow's opponents.
In Division 2A, Galwegians are seventh in the standings despite a promising start to the campaign.
They kicked off their season with a brilliant 26-19 win away to Cashel, but since then they have lost to City of Armagh and were well beaten by Malone last time out.
They did get a win against Blackrock in Round 3 but will need to return to winning ways when they face Queen's University at Crowley Park tomorrow if they want to get back in the running for promotion.
Elsewhere in Division 2A, Corinthians are eighth ahead of their clash with Highfield tomorrow. Corinthians' only success came away to Greystones in Round 2.
In Division 2C, Sligo look to be in contention for promotion once again this season, and they are top of the table prior to their visit to Bective Rangers at Donnybrook.
Sligo have won three of their four games this season, their only draw was against Bruff at Kilballyowen Park. And they claimed a huge 52-15 win over Omagh at Hamilton Park in Round 4 to push them two points clear of Bangor at the summit.
