Top men Terenure will have to fence in Ringrose

(All kick-offs tomorrow 2.30 unless stated)

DIVISION 1A

Clontarf v Old Belvedere, Caste Avenue, Tonight 7.30

Tarf will not stray too far away from what they put out last week. OB will want a quick revenge for their recent Leinster Senior League Cup semi-final defeat as they look for a second win in six rounds.

St Mary's College v Lansdowne, Templeville Road, Tonight 7.30

Coach Peter Smyth should be able to call on the services of Ciarán Ruddock, who is back from College exams.

Mike Ruddock's men are handily in third without really switching on in attack.

UCD v Terenure College, Belfield Bowl, Tonight 7.30

Ireland U20 centre Garry Ringrose and hooker Risteard Byrne come in for College. The shock leaders 'Nure are hunting a sixth straight win with the most points scored and the least conceded under James Blaney.

DIVISION 1B

Dublin University v Shannon, College Park, 2.0

Killian O'Leary comes onto the wing for Tim Maupin, who has flown out to play in the US Eagles against Romanial.

DIVISION 2A

Skerries v Bective Rangers, Holmpatrick, Tonight 8.0.

The North Dubliners can really push on into the top half with victory over another mid-table club. Rangers coach Barry Gibney can count on scrum-half Marcus O'Driscoll, who has recovered from a chest infection.

Seapoint v Thomond, Kilbogget Park 2.0

The last thing second-from-bottom Seapoint want to do is to waste all the progress they've made by dropping down a Division.

Blackrock College v Naas, Stradbook

Fifth-place Rock have a solid look to them under the guidance of Leinster analyst Emmet Farrell. Coach Peter O'Donnell makes a change to his back row, bringing in Johnny Holmes at number eight.

NUIM Barnhall v Rainey Old Boys, Parsonstown

Coach Dennis Bowes inserts Simon Gillespie at out-half and Gareth Murray into loose-head.

Old Wesley v Queen's University, Donnybrook

Director of Rugby Morgan Lennon makes no changes to the leaders from last week.

DIVISION 2B

Boyne v DLSP, Shamrock Lodge

Louth inter-country footballer Bevan Duffy could start in the centre for the first time in two years. Salmo' coach Phil de Barra will wait on the fitness of wing Luke Moran and second row Andy Coleman.

Greystones v Midleton, Dr Hickey Park

Stones are one of just three clubs to breach the 100-point barrier. The defence needs work.

Navan v Sunday's Well, Balreask Old

The Meath club is moving well in what should be their fourth win from five rounds.

Old Crescent v Tullamore, Rosbrien

Winger Conor Molloy will have to get up to speed quickly as he plays for the first time in over a year.

Sligo v Wanderers, Hamilton Park

Coach Greg Lynch will like what he sees in attack; not so much in defence away to the high-flying Westerners.
