Galwegians picked up their second win of the season and accounted for rivals Corinthians at Glenina on Friday night.
After three wins to start their campaign Corinthians have now lost two on the bounce and will hope to turn their fortunes around against Midleton on Saturday at Corinthian Park (2.30pm).
Four penalties and a drop goal from Tadhg Leader gave Galwegians a 15-3 at half-time, with Mick O’Flynn’s penalty after 22 minutes keeping his side in touch.
However, with Corinthians scrum-half Steven Bruce in the sin-bin a try from Tadhg Leader after 47 minutes gave the home side a 22-3 lead, before Darren Classens touched down for the Tuam Road outfit ten minutes later.
But Daragh Leader slotted three penalties late on to ease Wegians clear of their rivals, before John Cleary picked up a yellow card late on for the hosts.
