Men's weekend preview

After two weeks of sparring in the Neville Cup, the first major title in Leinster gets underway tomorrow with four Senior league matches tipping off.

Neville Cup semi-finalists Railway and Three Rock face-off at Grange Road at 1pm with the visitors hoping to avoid a double-figures trouncing they endured on the opening day of their last season in division one.

They seem better equipped this time out with Paul Cooke in charge and young talent emerging but Rovers would still be strong favourites.

Glenanne are another side who would be expected to win handily against Kilkenny (3pm, Glenanne Park) as Alan Browne returns though Stephen Butler may not be involved due to holidays.

Fingal and Corinthian (ALSAA, 1.30pm) and YMCA against Monkstown (Claremont Road, 2.45pm) are likely to be much more keenly contested battles.

Pembroke, meanwhile, must sit out the weekend as UCD get their annual two week's grace to the start of the season.

Elsewhere, Peter Agnew's propsal to return to the two up, two down promotion and relegation issue in division one was narrowly defeated at this week's Leinster Branch AGM.
