Malahide v Cork County
Malahide welcome Cork County to the Village for what on paper should be a routine home victory. Malahide, unbeaten look ready for the move to the Premier League and should have too much for a travelling Cork outfit fresh from a good victory last time out. Once again the key to the away team's fortune will be how they bowl against Malahide's much vaunted batting line up performs. The home fans will be hoping for another afternoon of Ford led boundaries, however Malahide bat a long way down. A regulation home win is the likeliest outcome. But should Malahide have a bad day at the office, Cork as they proved last time can spoil any party and sneak a win.
Terenure v Rush
Rush travel to Terenure in a bid to keep the pressure on Balbriggan for second place, behind Malahide. On paper this again is a regulation away win. Terenure have yet to register a victory this season. And in all truth Rush should have too much with both bat and ball. It is hard to see anything other than an away win. Can Terenure compete to deny them the full 25 points?
Railway Union v Balbriggan
Balbriggan travel to Park Avenue in what is likely to be the most keenly contested game in Division 2 today. It's a game that can be rightly described as a must win for both teams. Balbriggan won the home fixture against Railway earlier in the season and will fancy their chances today. So this is set up for a classic encounter. Both teams have decent batting and a couple of talismanic players in their line ups. Conor Fletcher and Timcen Maruma for Balbriggan and Kenny Carroll and Kevin O'Brien for Railway. This game is very hard to call, so let's hope that brilliance from one of the four mentioned or from others decides this fascinating clash. Could go down to the last over.
