Cork Con host UCC in a massive local derby in the AIL Division 1A this evening.

Cork Con lead the way with just two rounds of rugby remaining in the season proper as the 2017 winners aim to reclaim their crown. UCC are still battling against relegation with Young Munster and Shannon also in trouble at the wrong end of the standings.

Young Munster entertain Shannon in the huge Limerick derby at Tom Clifford Park this evening. A win for either side would boost their survival claims.

In Division 2A, champions Highfield are away to Queen's University tomorrow. Tonight's derby game sees Cashel welcome Old Crescent to Spafield. Nenagh Ormond are away to Blackrock, Dolphin are at Navan and UL Bohemians host Galwegians.

In 2B, Sunday's Well are at home against Belfast Harlequins. In 2C, Bruff are at City of Derry, Midleton are home to Seapoint and Thomond face Bangor.
