It's a virtual shoot-out for a place in this seasonís Leinster Premier League at Balrothery today when North County meet YMCA.

Victory for the visitors together with defeat for basement side Railway Union by Phoenix will confirm YMCA progression from Group A of the League Cup, alongside The Hills, Malahide and Phoenix.

North County, with a final group game against Dublin University next weekend, however, will be in pole position for a top flight spot if they can record their second win today.

In Group B, itís still a four-way battle for the three places behind Merrion who complete their group stage fixtures today with a visit to Leinster.

A sixth straight win for the defending league champions will give the winners of the Rush-Pembroke clash at Kenure the chance to leapfrog Leinster into second place, but it looks as if Rushís final game, against Balbriggan on Sunday week, will decide the final place in the new-look Premier League.

The Super 3s (the womenís inter-provincials) get under way tomorrow with a triple header of T20 games at North Kildare, starting at 10am.
Defending champions Dragons face the Scorchers in the opening match with all three teams playing each other. The remaining two games are at 1.30pm and 5pm.
