The Carrick-on-Shannon men meet UCG this weekend to determine their Heineken Junior Cup future.

The plate fixture comes by way of Carrick’s Heineken Cup opener against Creggs, and Buccaneers’ 19-13 win over the students.

Carrick meets Portumna on the 19th as the 1C league resumes. While neither Portumna nor Carrick have enjoyed a great deal of matchday success this winter, this is a highstakes encounter with as much pride on the line as a Dunmore and Ballyhaunis clash at the other end of the competition.

Training continues Wednesday and Friday, as per usual, 8pm.
