In the finale of the Guinness Pro 12 League season, Connacht host the league leaders Ospreys at the Galway Sportsground on Saturday (3pm) needing a win to give them a chance of achieving their seasonal goal.

The dust has just about settled on the group stages of the Mayo championship and there is never a weekend that goes by that you are not intrigued or partly shocked by some of the results. I’m not quite the expert tipster I thought I was- our east Mayo friends in Aughamore let me down (Jimmy Killeen- the lethal Garrymore forward bagging himself eight points) along with Tomas Tierney’s Westport who failed to deliver on their promising victory in Tourmakeady.
The former Irish rugby coach Eddie O’Sullivan has been confirmed as a panellist for at least two of the Mullingar Rugby Club’s ‘Breakfast with the Lions’ for the forthcoming test match series.
Rafter Dempseys Division 1
Some six and a half years ago John Muldoon, a newcomer to professional rugby, received his first cap for Connacht against the Scottish Borders. Back then coach Michael Bradley told the 20-years-old that he was there because he was an “all right” rugby player - not because he was home-grown Connacht. Today the Portumna man is one of only two from the province on the Irish team, and he knows he’s there on merit - standing proudly and taller than his 6’3” frame alongside Lions players like Jamie Heaslip, David Wallace, Paul O’Connell.
Kilkenny & District Umbro League
Moycullen men’s basketball conclude the year with a National League fixture away to Castleisland on Saturday (8.15pm)..
•Corinthians claimed the scalp of city rivals Galwegians by 15 - 0 in the battle for a play-off place in AIL u-20 division one league. In appalling conditions, both sides served up an enthralling contest which saw Corinthians move up into joint third place in a league currently led by fellow Connacht outfit Buccaneers. Unsurprisingly, it became a battle up front, and Corinthians, with the wind, dominated territory for the first half. Prop Fiachra Tierney was unlucky when stopped just short due to the excellent Wegians pack, led by Greg Leader. Scoreless at the break, Galwegians looked the more likely to win, but Corinthians played outstanding rugby to dominate the second half and score three tries. Johnny Kearney touched down for the first try. When Shane Conneely broke on the blind, he fed Kevin Russell who dived over in the corner. Galwegians fought back, but with time running out scrumhalf Peter Walsh sold an outrageous dummy from broken play to score the third. Corinthians now meet Cork Constitution in Temple Hill on Saturday.
