Young Munster host Cork Con in a Munster derby in the Ulster Bank League Division 1A at Tom Clifford Park tomorrow.

Full-back Ben Martin was the difference when the sides last met in November, his second-half penalty sealing a 9-6 win for Young Munster at Temple Hill.

However that was a rare victory for Munsters in a disappointing season. They could fall to ninth if they slip up and Con will be looking for the win to push further up the table - they are fourth, four points behind Clontarf.

Bottom side Dolphin host Old Belvedere at Irish Independent Park as they look to improve on their 22-22 draw at Anglesea Road earlier in the season.

In Division 1B, Garryowen can go top if they win away to Dublin University and Galwegians lose away to Ballymena.

Sixth-placed Shannon will want to exact revenge for a 26-21 home loss when they travel to Belfast Harlequins. Meanwhile, UL Bohemians can come off the bottom of the table if they beat Malone at Thomond Park.

There is also a Munster derby in 2A where Thomond host UCC at Liam Fitzgerald Park. Cashel travel to take on Dungannon, and Nenagh Ormond are home to Queen's University.

In 2B, Bruff host Midleton, Kanturk visit Greystones, Highfield go to Navan, Old Crescent welcome Ards while Richmond host Sunday's Well.
