The current coronavirus crackdown gives us a chance to catch up on our statistics for our featured All Ireland Leagues.
You never know, this might be the final update for this season, but hopefully they will be back in some shape or form come April. Certainly, you would hope that the play offs go ahead!

The last round was played on 29th February. The results went pretty much with the predictions with a couple of exceptions in that I expected Dublin Uni v Cork Con to be a bit closer and I thought that Clontarf might have had a bigger bounce back.
There wasn’t any movement on in the league table from Week 13 to Week 14 though Cork Constitution extended their lead at the top from 8 to 12 points.
At the bottom it remains tight between Dublin University, UCC and Ballynahinch and with UCC scheduled to play Hinch and Dublin University in the last two rounds I would guess the bottom three will be hoping that full fixtures are resumed.
Week 14 was quite a low scoring week with 130 points scored compared to an 195 weekly average. The points came from 18 tries, 11 conversions (65% conversion rate) and 6 penalties.
JJ O’Neill (Cork Constitution) and Michael Courtney (Clontarf) were the leading scorers for the week with 10 points from 2 tries each. James Tarrant (UCD) was next highest with seven points from two conversions and one penalty.
Tarrant’s seven point haul sees him come into the top six scorers with Lansdowne’s Tim Foley dropping out.
Murray Linn (UCC) and Ronan Foley (UCD) were the only try scorers in the leading pack, both picking up a try each to move up one notch.
