Saturday's opponents 'Nure lie in third spot in the 1A table, six points ahead of Munsters' who scored an impressive 39-24 win over Lansdowne last time out.

Also in 1A on Saturday, seventh-placed Garryowen travel to Belfield to face UCD.

In Division 1B, Shannon face a crucial fixture in their bid to secure a top four promotion play-off spot as the third-placed Parish side host City of Armagh on Thomond Park's back pitch.

Meanwhile, in Division 2A, sixth-placed Old Crescent, half a dozen points off the promotion play-off spots, host fourth-placed Ballymena at Takumi Park, while UL-Bohemian travel to Spafield to face Cashel.

In Division 2C, seventh-placed Bruff travel to basement side Clonmel.
