Young Munster can get back in contention for the Ulster Bank League Division 1A this weekend when they clash with leaders Lansdowne at Tom Clifford Park.

Young Munster sit in sixth position, clear of the relegation zone, while they are just three points behind fourth-placed Garryowen.

Lansdowne are eight points clear at the top but reigning champions Cork Con remain third ahead of their game against Terenure College at Temple Hill tomorrow.

Garryowen moved ahead of Clontarf last time out and they go to the league's basement side, Buccaneers, at Dubarry Park.

In Division 1B, a win for Shannon away to Old Belvedere at Anglesea Road could put them top of the table with just two ties remaining.

UCC still have a chance at promotion and they are at home to Banbridge in Mardyke where they must win to stay in the hunt.

UL Bohemians are ninth before they clash with Naas on the 4G pitch at UL. Already-relegated Dolphin will finish bottom and they host Ballymena at Irish Independent Park tomorrow.

Highfield have a big chance to make ground on Division 2A leaders Malone when the two sides meet at Woodleigh Park. Malone are currently seven points clear.

Nenagh Ormond can also retain their hopes of promotion with a win against Queen's University at New Ormond Park. Cashel are fourth before they host Blackrock College.

In Division 2B Old Crescent, who have already been crowned champions, go to MU Barnhall. And Sunday's Well are away against Dungannon.

In 2C, Thomond welcome Tullamore to Liam Fitzgerald Park. Midleton host Omagh and Bruff face Bective Rangers.
