The Ulster Bank All Ireland League continues with a full program of games across all four divisions as well as a variety of Junior games that have been postponed in recent weeks.

Cork Constitution travel to the Capital to take on Division 1A leaders Clontarf at Castle Avenue. The Lilywhites face a tricky task if they are to avenge November’s 26-13 home defeat by a ‘Tarf side featuring former Con’ players Evan Ryan and Brendan Cuttriss.

Seventh-placed Dolphin will be looking to make the most of home advantage count in their bid to avoid being sucked into a relegation battle as they entertain Young Munster at Musgrave Park. The Limerick side recorded an18-7 win when these sides met at Tom Clifford Park in November.
Bottom side Garryowen, who are still without a win lock horns with fellow strugglers Ballynahinch to Dooradoyle. The County Down side ran out 18-6 winners when these sides met at Ballymacarn Park in November.

In Division 1B third-placed UL Bohemian make the long trip to Deramore Park to take on Belfast Harlequins and the Limerick side will be looking to make it two wins out of two in a bid to keep their outside chances of promotion on track as they defeated ‘Quins 23-17 at Annacotty in October.

Shannon take on second-placed Corinthians at Coonagh. The Galway side ran out 30-16 winners at Corinthian Park in October.

Bruff, who are rooted to the foot of Division 2A, will be looking to make home advantage count as they aim to build on last week’s 26-15 away win over Naas when they take on Banbridge at Kilballyowen Park.
Fellow strugglers Old Crescent lock horns with Naas at Rosbrien and Highfield make the long trip to Foyleside to take on City of Derry at Judge’s Road.

Galbally can take another step closer to safety as they entertain Clonakilty at the County Limerick venue.

Bottom side Newport, who are still without a win will have their work cut out as they travel to the Kingdom to take on Killarney.
