Buccaneers are still looking for their first win of the season in the Ulster Bank League Division 1A after the opening block of games.

It has been a poor start to the campaign for the Athlone outfit who lost against Lansdowne, Garryowen and Young Munster before last weekend's 26-6 reversal at Castle Avenue against Clontarf.

Clontarf had held a 12-0 lead at half-time, and out-half Luke Carty was the only scorer for Buccaneers with his two penalties in the second half.

But tries from Bryan Byrne, Michael Noone, Cian O'Donoghue and Matt D'Arcy ensured that Clontarf left with the bonus point. But, worryingly for Buccaneers, they are four points adrift of Trinity at the bottom of the table.

In Division 2A, Galwegians are seventh in the standings despite their good start to the season, which came unstuck with a massive defeat away to Malone last weekend.

Galwegians had defeated Cashel and Blackrock in the opening three rounds; they lost to City of Armagh, but suffered a shocking 70-15 loss at Gibson Park last weekend.

Also in Division 2A, Corinthians are just one place but two points behind Galwegians in the table. The Tuam Road side also fell to a heavy defeat in Round 4. They came up against Nenagh Ormond at Corinthian Park and were beaten 63-24.

Sligo lead the way in the bottom tier after a superb start to the season where they have won three and drawn one of their opening block of games in Division 2C.

Sligo had already won against Thomond and Malahide coming into their top-of-the-table clash with Omagh in Round 4, and they secured a massive 52-15 win at Hamilton Park.
