After last weekend's hectic round of action in the last 16 of the Connacht Junior Cup it is back to league action for a handful of Mayo sides this weekend. It was a pretty successful weekend for Mayo teams last Sunday, with Ballina, Castlebar, and Ballinrobe all picking up wins - while Westport and Ballyhaunis were put out of the competition by Tuam and Corinthians respectively.
Fresh from their historic 6-3 win over Instonians in the quarter-final of the All Ireland Junior Cup last weekend, Ballina will go looking to make it five wins from five on the domestic front when they return to action in the Connacht Junior 1A League. So far this season the north Mayo men have been in flying form running up big scores, seeing off Westport 27-7, Galwegians 56-5, and Buccaneers 69-22, the closest that any side has got to them in the league this season is third place Sligo, but Ballina still saw them off 27-19 a month ago. On Sunday they will expect to make it win number five when they take on seventh placed Monivea who have only registered one win so far this season from their four outings.
The two heavyweights of rugby in the county will pack down against each other this Sunday at 2.30pm in Heffernan Park. Hosts Ballina, have backed up their historic junior cup win last season with a brilliant start to this season and currently sit on top of the Junior 1A table with seven wins from their opening eight games, their only loss coming thanks to a narrow three point defeat by Connemara at home a month ago.
After going down to local rivals Ballina a fortnight ago, the brave bulls from Westport got back to winning ways last weekend and moved back to the top of the table in division 1A of the Connacht Junior League with a comprehensive 23-7 win over Galwegians in Carrowholly. The victory was the Bulls' fifth in eight outings this season and sent them three points clear at the top of the table. However they could slip back into second place in the standings this weekend if Wegians, as expected, see off a Buccaneers side who have registered just one win from their six games so far this season, with Westport having the weekend off.
