Young Munster must beat Lansdowne at Tom Clifford Park tomorrow (2.30pm) if they want to progress to the play-offs of the Ulster Bank League Division 1A.

But even a win might not be enough with Ballynahinch, who host Clontarf, in pole position to make the final four.

All Munsters can do is ensure they beat the league leaders and hope for results to go their way.

Cork Con host UCD but also need other results to go their way - they are seventh but only three points off the play-offs. Dolphin are away to St Mary's seeking to restore pride after a disappointing season.

Garryowen currently top Division 1B but their tie with second-placed Galwegians at Crowley Park tomorrow will decide who goes up automatically.

Finish second and Garryowen would have to take on the team who finishes second from bottom in 1A away from home in a promotion/relegation play-off.

Shannon are seventh and they travel to take on Malone at Gibson Park while UL Bohemians are also safe in eighth as they host relegated side Corinthians at Thomond Park.

In 2A, Cashel host Skerries, Nenagh Ormond welcome Rainey OB, Thomond are home to Naas and UCC host Blackrock College.

In 2B, Bruff are home to Boyne, Old Crescent welcome Navan, Richmond host Kanturk, Sunday's Well are home to Highfield and Midleton travel to take on Wanderers.
