Hosie Cup Final
Clondalkin v Newbridge, Gordon Park Kingswood. Sunday 2pm
The Hosie Cup final will be decided on Sunday as holders Newbridge put their title on the line against a Clondalkin side with plenty of reason to believe they can secure the title themselves.
The Dublin side were a revelation in the opening two months of the Division 1a season, many had expected them to find the going tough but they established themselves in the top three from the outset.
November and December have not been as kind however and this final might be a timely boost ahead of a vitally important January period.
For Newbridge the form guide is an almost exact reverse, they had a dreadful start after a huge turnover of squad members in the off season but have hit a brilliant run of form gaining revenge on Clondalkin for an early season 13-12 loss with a 23-19 victory in early December.
