Men's Round-up

Three Rock 2 (Peter McConnell ps, Mitch Darling) Corinthian 2 (Lucas Piccioli, Miles Warren)
Miles Warren's close-range effort two minutes from time gave Corinthian a share of the spoils, depsite trailing 2-0 after goals from Peter McConnell and a reverse from Mitch Darling. Lucas Piccioli got his side back into the game with a reverse stick shot of his own from a short corner to get the Reds back into the game. Phelie Maguire was sin-binned with four minutes to go and Corinthian took full advantage.

YMCA 1 Monkstown 0
In a game of six yellow cards, YM produced the shock of the weekend. They now move to 10 points, well clear of the bottom pair while the result probably has greater implications for the Town in their All-Ireland chase.

Kilkenny 1 Glenanne 3 (Gary Shaw, Graham Shaw, Jonathon Kane)
The dropped points by Rovers see Glenanne back in the hunt for second place, closing the gap to four points ahead of their showdown in the Mills Cup on Sunday. Kilkenny again defended gainfully against a full-strength visiting side.

Pembroke 14 (Alan Sothern 5, Justin Sheriff 3, Stuart Loughrey 2, John McInroy 2, Craig Fulton) Bray 0
Fingal 12 (Paddy Gahan 4, Chris Neville 2, Glen Shekleton 2, Adrian Sweeney 2, Dave Bane, Mick McGuinness) UCD 1 (Robbie McFarlane)
Two results showing the chasm between top and bottom which show why the reorganisation of the leagues cannot come soon enough.

What is the reorganisation of the leagues ? Are the leagues being restructured next year ? .... Is the promotion/relegation Div 1, Div 2 format changing next year ?

the worst things is, at this point of the season the leinster branch has STILL not decided on what the format of the div1/div2 promotion/relegation issue shall be. such indecision would suggest that it will remain the same as before. anything else would be highly unfair to all teams involved, considering any decision would be made so close to the end of the season
