Weather hit Schools' Cup ties try again

By Michael Sadlier

Three of the four Danske Bank Schools' Cup games snowed off last weekend will be played today, weather permitting.

The third round game involving Omagh Academy against Bangor Grammar will kick off at Omagh Rugby Club at 1.00pm while Coleraine Grammar host Friends' School Lisburn and Rainey Endowed welcome Portadown College, both 2.30pm.

The only remaining third round tie still be to be played is the game between Cambridge House and Regent House which is due to take place tomorrow at Eaton Park at 1.30pm.

The winner between Omagh and Bangor will host either Rainey or Portadown in round four while the school coming out on top in the Coleraine v Friends tie will welcome Methodist College Belfast.

Tomorrow's meeting between Cambridge House and Regent House will result in the winner hosting Royal School Armagh.

In a full programme of AIL games this weekend, Ballynahinch will go top of Division 1B if they overcome UCC at home and struggling Ballymena topple leaders Shannon at Eaton Park.

Malone, leaders in 2A, will be looking to stay top of the pile when they play Greystones at Gibson Park while Queen's University host City of Armagh in what will be a keenly contested Ulster derby at the Dub.

In 2B, the most eye-catching game sees second-placed Rainey Old Boys at Skerries where they will aim to keep up the pressure on leaders Old Crescent who entertain lowly Belfast Harlequins.
