When things do return to normal it’s likely that cup matches and play offs will be top of the fixture priority list.

Current Standings

We really should have reviewed week 14 of the Energia AIL 1B at the time as it really was an exciting week for the Ulster sides involved.

City of Armagh brought Shannon’s highly impressive run to a juddering halt at the Palace Grounds, Banbridge turned over Naas away from home and Malone got revenge on an earlier defeat at Gibson Park by taking the points against  St Mary’s College at Templeville Road.

It was actually a good week for our predictions, with four out of five, City of Armagh’s win against Shannon being the one to throw us off.

The results, however, didn’t have a huge impact on the league placings. Old Wesley leapt back into second place at Shannon’s expense and City of Armagh leapfrogged old Belvedere to form an Ulster bridgehead ready for a challenge on the top four should the league resume.

Leading Scorers

Week 14 was the lowest scoring week this season with 120 points scored, which I believe is the lowest scoring week this season, bringing the weekly average down to 180 points.

The 120 points came from 17 tries, 10 conversions and 5 penalties.

Joe Dunleavy (Malone) and Josh Pim (Old Wesley) were the Week 14 leading scorers with Cormac Fox (City of Armagh) next in line with 8 points from 2 penalties and 1 conversion.

Fox’s eight point haul sees him move into third place in the leading scorers table with Rory Stynes ( 3 conversions) and Peter Osborne (1 penalty) the only others in the top six to add to their totals.

Highfield’s Colin O’Neill was the only leading try scorer to get over the line in Week 14, his single try moving him to joint third alongside Shea O’Brien on 7 tries for the season.
