Men's Division One: Pembroke 6 Railway Union 0

Pembroke 6 (Alan Sothern 4, Alan Giles, Maurice Elliott) Railway Union 0

Pembroke moved into a four-point lead at the top of division one as they take a strong psychological advantage in the Leinster title race. Alan Giles opened the scoring before the league's leading scorer, Alan Sothern, produced a four-star effort to bulk up the scoreline.

It leaves a fascinating set or permutations in the league's endgame, especially due to the amount of refixes.

If Rovers win all their remaining games, they will retain the title but Pembroke's win extends the difference between the sides to eight points. Glenanne also lie in wait, currently in second, but need to beat Rovers and Pembroke to drop points in their games against Monkstown, Corinthian and Kilkenny.

Indeed, Corinthian could have much to say on the final destination of the title. Having already drawn with the Glens and Pembroke before the arrival of Andrew Cronje and Darren Kimfley, they will provide serious challenges to both Pembroke and Rovers in the run-in.
