Galwegians will hope to continue their promising start to their Ulster Bank League Division 1A campaign when they travel to Terenure College tomorrow (4.30).

It was a fantastic opening weekend for Galwegians as they beat Cork Constitution 12-11 at Crowley Park. New signings Cormac Brennan and Ed O'Keefe dotted down as they held on to win.

However, Terenure will look for revenge after they slipped to a 27-8 defeat away to Old Belvedere in Round 1.

Buccaneers were also winners in Round 1 - they face newly-promoted Old Wesley at Donnybrook tomorrow.

Connacht academy star Conor McKeon kicked 11 points for Buccaneers as they saw off Shannon 21-11 at Dubarry Park.

It was a great way to get going for a side that were mid-table throughout 2014-15, and another win here could do wonders for them.

Corinthians will need to bounce back from their shock defeat on the first Saturday when they travel to Banbridge in 2A tomorrow.

Corinthians slipped to a 30-18 loss at home to Queen's University in the opening round and can ill-afford to drop points in their bid for promotion.

In 2C, Sligo need to recover from a 54-10 hammering away to Navan - they host Kanturk in Hamilton Park.
