Galwegians have another must-win game in the Ulster Bank League Division 1A when they host Old Belvedere at Crowley Park tomorrow.

Galwegians scored two tries in a much-improved display last weekend as they look to stay away from relegation trouble but it was only enough to secure a losing bonus point away to reigning champions Lansdowne.

Old Belvedere come into this game on the back of an important 19-14 win over Ballynahinch. But they could be dragged back into the relegation dog-fight if 'Wegians pick up the victory.

In Division 1B Buccaneers are well out of the promotion race and they travel to take on Blackrock College at Stradbrook as they look to secure another mid-table finish.

Despite last weekend's 28-14 win at home to Belfast Harlequins, Buccaneers have only won seven games this term and are three points behind fourth-placed Old Wesley.

In 2A Corinthians will look for another positive result when they host Malone. Last weekend's 12-3 win at Thomond was a morale-boosting victory as they look to stave off relegation.

In the bottom tier Sligo could make huge strides towards survival if they can get a win against third-from-bottom Boyne at Hamilton Park. Eight points separate them in the standings and Sligo are looking for only their third win this term.
