Rugby Union: ERIC & MAL BOOST TWICKENHAM BID.

Byline: RORY KERR

IT WAS a good weekend for Ireland's recalled internationals on another busy weekend for the All Ireland League.

Malcolm O'Kelly and Eric Miller - both missed Ireland's win against Wales - were in action for their clubs as they made claims for a place on Eddie O'Sullivan's side to play England at the weekend.

Miller helped Terenure to a 23-20 win over a Blackrock College side that included Leinster forwards Shane Byrne, Paul Wallace and Bob Casey.

Terenure had trailed early on to tries from Conor Kilroy and David Quinlan but a converted Dermot Mc Inerney score just before the break gave them hope.

Trailing 17-8, successive kicks from Richard Governey brought Terenure level and then with 10 minutes to go, the young outhalf kicked his side in front for the first time.

Kilroy briefly responded for the visitors but they were then penalised for infringing in the ruck and Governey sent over his sixth penalty of the day to lift Terenure to fourth place in the table.

Meanwhile O'Kelly showed that he was more than just a lineout jumper when he put in crucial tackles to help St Mary's to a 21-18 win over Garryowen.

For the second year running, Mary's claimed the win when Mark McHugh landed the winning kick from 40 yards.

Cork stay on top of the division courtesy of their an 8-8 draw with Lansdowne.

RESULTS: Buccanneers 61 DLSP 0; Y Munster 18 Ballymena 19; Carlow 23 Galwegians 35; Lansdowne 8 Cork Con 8; Dungannon 30 UCD 42; Clontarf 6 Shannon 14; Garryowen 18 St Mary's College 21; Terenure College 23 Blackrock College 20.
