Galwegians travel to take on Young Munster at Tom Clifford Park tomorrow in the Ulster Bank League Division 1A (1.0) as they look to stave off relegation following a dismal run of results away from home.

Galwegians have lost all six of their away games this term, and with just four victories at home, they sit three points ahead of bottom side, Ballynahinch, in the standings.

Last weekend's 33-15 defeat away to league leaders UCD at Belfield was also their third defeat in a row. However, before that loss they registered an important 15-12 win over Young Munster at Crowley Park and that will give them confidence.

Yet, since then the Limerick club have climbed to fourth in the standings, and with the possibility of them moving into the top three it could be another tough away day for Galwegians.

Buccaneers remain fifth in Division 1B and have a week off ahead of their difficult journey to take on pace-setters St Mary's at Templeville Road.

Last weekend's 33-22 home defeat to Dolphin was a big blow to Buccaneers slim promotion hopes and they cannot afford to drop any more points with Old Wesley moving clear in fourth.

In Division 2A, Corinthians suffered their 11th defeat of the season at home to Nenagh Ormond last weekend. In 2C, Sligo clash with Midleton on Saturday February 20.
