There are no changes at the top of the AIL after the weekend games, but Nenagh Ormond’s hopes of taking the Heineken Munster Junior League title look doomed for another season, after their last minute defeat by Clonmel.

A try deep in injury time preserved Cork Constitution’s unbeaten run in the AIL, as they defeated St. Mary’s 20-16. Shannon kept in touch with the leaders with a 20-11 home win over Co. Carlow. The big surprise of the day was Dolphin’s 15-10 defeat of Dungannon at Stevenson Park, but Garryowen suffered a heavy defeat, going down to Belfast Harlequins 50-17.

U.L. Bohemian got back into contention for promotion with a 26-19 win away to Malone and also secured a bonus point.

Highfield increased their lead at the top of the Third Division with a 28-22 win away to Queens University and Clonakilty defeated Ballina 33-15.

Nenagh Ormond joined Bruff at the top of the table, after they picked up a bonus point in their 21-20 defeat by Clonmel, but having played two games more then the leaders there challenge looks over.
