Energia All Ireland League Division 1B
St. Mary’s College RFC v UCC
Saturday 21st October 2023
Game three of the Energia All Ireland League Division 1B, and the last game of the first block of AIL Fixtures, brings UCC to Templeville Road
UCC lost their opening game at home to Division 1B newcomers Blackrock, but they followed that up with an impressive bonus point win away to Buccaneers last weekend.
Meanwhile St. Mary’s College have made a strong start to the season with two bonus point victories, at home to Buccaneers in round one and against Old Wesley last time out.
The honours were shared last season with both sides winning their home fixture. Visitors to Templeville Road this Saturday are likely to be treated to another entertaining AIL game.
