Missing again: Bangor’s Jason Morgan is still unavailable

Having just got themselves back in senior rugby, Bangor have wasted no time in showing that they intend to flourish and not flounder in Division 2C.Currently fourth in the table, the Upritchard Park club have been in pretty decent form with only two defeats so far and, this weekend, they make the lengthy journey to struggling Kanturk in Co Cork with confidence high.

However, they will again be without player/coach Jason Morgan but will have Gareth Millar at 10 this time out with Ross McCloskey, who filled in last week, moving to the wing.

Elsewhere in 2C, leaders Rainey, who surprisingly lost for the first time against Sligo, will bid to bounce back when they host Navan.

At the top of 2A, Banbridge remain unbeaten after five games and they are on the road to Nenagh, who are in third and lost their first match in a dramatic finish at Malone.

At the foot of the table, Belfast Harlequins have what looks like a must-win clash ahead of them when ninth-placed Cashel rack up at Deramore.

Malone are also travelling and, doubtless buoyed by last week's win, are at Corinthians.

In 2B, Armagh are still setting the pace and will be looking to go six from six against Old Crescent at the Palace Grounds. Dungannon, in second and five behind Armagh, are away at Wanderers while, down in ninth, City of Derry meet Bective.

Div 2A: Blackrock v Highfield, Belfast Harlequins v Cashel, Nenagh v Banbridge, Corinthians v Malone

Div 2B: Armagh v Old Crescent, Bective v City of Derry, Thomond v Skerries, Wanderers v Dungannon

Div 2C: Boyne v Sligo, Bruff v Tullamore, Kanturk v Bangor, Midleton v Seapoint, Rainey v Navan
