Irish Rugby League week two preview & fixtures

Updated: May 17, 2012

The 2012 Rugby League season is starting to get into full swing with Round Two set to get under way this evening in Ballynahinch with a repeat of the 2010 Ulster Final as the Ballynahinch Rabbitohs take on the Fermanagh Redskins in Ballymacaron Park. This game kicks off at 8pm and is set to be one of the ties of the round.

Elsewhere in Ulster the Portadown Pumas travel to Strangford tomorrow evening looking to put their devastating loss in round one behind them when they meet the Sharks at 7pm. The final game game in Ulster this week sees the North Coast Boomers visit the Maiden City Broncos meet on Saturday at 12pm.

Leinster saw three of the new sides pick up victories in round one and round two is likely to see at least one of those sides hold onto their 100% record when Portarlington Wolverines make the trip to take on the Clondalkin Crusaders in Corkagh Park.

Round two in Leinster also see’s the Dublin City Exiles get their season under way when they welcome the Tallaght Tigers to Lakelands.

The Final game of the round, and possibly the most intriguing, see’s Ireland’s first ever all Meath affair when Ashbourne take on Athboy with the winner taking home the bragging rights in this Royal County clash.

Munster will see the Galway Tribesmen make a daunting trip to defending Champions the Treaty City Titans on Friday night. The Tribesmen will be hoping to cause an upset against the Titans in Galway.

Satruday see’s the return of last years beaten finalists the Country Cowboys who welcome the Cork Bulls to Killballyowen Park for their first meeting of the season and most likely the most mouthwatering clash of the division.
