It's down to the last four this weekend as the top two from both Munster and Leinster play off for a place in the final on August 14. Clontarf Bulls, on the back of last weekend's annihilation of Kildare Dragons, entertain Waterford Vikings. The Bulls will be overwhelming favourites for the game but the Vikings have defying the odds all season. Can Kevin Bowers & Co. inspire the Vikings to another upset?
Treaty City Titans did what neither Liam Kearns or Padjoe Whelahan could do this summer - bring a Munster title to Limerick.A victory over Super Valu Dublin Blues next Saturday will give them a chance to go for national glory.
The Blues' most impressive performance thus far was their brilliant win at Clontarf last month. They will need a similar performance to come out of Dooradoyle with a win.
This season has been the most successful in the history of the game in Ireland. More games have been played than ever before and the national team has beaten England for the first time. Applications for next years season could see the number of teams double and new conferences created.
