Cashel are in All-Ireland League Division 2A play-off action when they welcome Navan to Spafield tomorrow.

It's a massive semi-final tie for the Tipperary outfit who finished second after a final-round win away to Dolphin.

Cashel finished 10 points behind eventual champions Highfield but with 13 wins so far this season they will hope to see off a side who finished third, seven points behind them.

There is also a huge Munster derby in Division 2C where Midleton and Bruff face off with a chance of moving one step closer to 2B.

Midleton finished four points ahead of their Limerick rivals, who were third in the standings. These two sides met last weekend at Kilballyowen Park where Bruff were 26-8 winners.

Next weekend Cork Con face Dublin University in the Division 1A play-offs. UCC will look to avoid relegation to Division 1B when they take on Malone. And in 2C, Clonmel are away to Seapoint.
