In Group A Árdscoil Rís clash with St Colman’s College, Fermoy in Cahir and the Limerick side will be looking to consolidate their position at the top having already secured maximum points following their win over Castletroy College and a walkover from the Kerry Colleges.
The Cork representatives, however, are only a point behind, and consequently this is a game they must win to remain in contention.
The meeting of Blackwater CS and West Limerick Colleges in Mallow is another key battle as the Lismore side head Group B on four points.However, should the Limerickcombination prevail they would claim top position as the other clash involving Abbey CBS and Charleville CBS in Martinstown is a bottom of the table encounter.
The main attraction in Group C is the battle of Bandon HS and Thurles CBS in Fermoy. The Tipperary school have two wins out of two, while their opponents triumphed over Coláiste Chríost Rí but had to settle for a draw with Nenagh CBS. Victory for Bandon would see them head up this group.
Nenagh CBS will fancy their chances against Coláiste Chríost Rí in Charleville as the Cork team have yet to get off the mark.
In an-all Clare fixture, St Caimin’s CS face a tough challenge against St Flannan’s in Clarecastle in Group A.
The Ennis side have four points whilst their rivals have yet to win. All games throw-in at 1.30pm with the exception of Blackwater CS and West Limerick Schools which takes place in Mallow at 1pm.
There is one game in Group A tomorrow as Clonmel CBS and DLS Waterford meet in Carrick-on-Suir.
DLS have two victories while Clonmel have registered two draws so the Tipperary team are in need of a win to remain competitive.
