THREE Limerick sides recorded wins as Divisions 2A and 2B of the Ulster Bank League resumed after the New Year’s break this Saturday.

In Division 2A, Thomond are up to seventh place in the table after recording an impressive 33-18 win over Dungannon at Liam Fitzgerald Park. Thomond are now sitting just four points off third place after recording their fifth win of the campaign.

In Division 2B, Bruff are up to seventh place in the table after scoring a hard-earned 24-17 away win over Navan. The Limerick side scored three tries through John Clery, Tony Cahill and Andrew Whyte, while Paul Downes added three conversions and a penalty goal.

Also in 2B, Old Crescent scored four tries in the final quarter to record a thrilling 32-16 home win over Wanderers. Eighth-placed Old Crescent had trailed 6-11 at half-time.

There was disappointment for Richmond however, who suffered an 82-16 thumping away to high-flying Greystones. Richmond have dropped to second-from-bottom place in the 2B table on the back of this heavy defeat. Richmond trailed 35-9 at half-time.
