Galwegians have made the perfect start to their first year back in Division 1B and they will be looking to make it three from three when they host UL Bohemians in Crowley Park tomorrow.

'Wegians top the table on ten points after they registered their second successive bonus-point victory with a win over Shannon last weekend. Jerome Harimate is proving to be the key man for the Glenina outfit after three tries in their opening two fixtures and he will be the one to watch once more.

Buccaneers take on Shannon in Thomond Park and they will be looking to build on their 25-22 victory over Garryowen last time out with tries from Shane Layden and Mata Fifita laying the foundation. Shannon are coming off the back of two losses and languish at the bottom of the table so Tony Dolan's forces will need to ensure they are switched on.

Corinthians travel to Dooradoyle where a wounded Garryowen await. Corinthians completed a clean sweep for the Connacht sides in 1B with their defeat of Malone at the weekend but this weekend's match will be tougher.

The Connacht trio of Miah Nikora, Finlay Bealham and Eoghan Masterson were big contributors last time out.

Meanwhile in 2B, Sligo head to Towns Park for a clash with Midleton sitting pretty at the top of the table but also knowing they won't have it as easy as their 60-5 annihilation of Ards in Round 1.
