Tipperary v Galway, 1.00pm, The Ragg, Mike O’Kelly (Cork)
Tipperary put in a superb performance last weekend against Cork, and while their chances of a semi-final spot have evaporated, they will still be hugely determined to put one over on Galway in the final round. With a semi-final looming, Noel Finn won’t want his side to rest on their laurels as places are up for grabs. An excellent encounter is in store with Galway to shade it.
Dublin v Wexford, 3.00pm, Naomh Mearnog, Fintan McNamara (Clare)
Denis Murphy’s youthful side face an enormous task against reigning champions Wexford in the final round. JJ Doyle is expected to make a number of changes for this tie. Dublin will be bolstered by home venue but a difficult assignment awaits them against a stronger and more cohesive outfit.
Kilkenny v Cork, 3.00pm, Jenkinstown, Alan Lagrue (Kildare) * Highlights on The Sunday Game
With both sides safely through to the semi-finals, neither management side will want to give too much away in advance of their semi-final draw. Cork, following last week’s lethargic display against Tipp, will want to finish the round robin series with a bang. Kilkenny at home, and with fierce rivalry between both, will be determined to collect the points. However, the Rebels may sneak it.
Offaly v Clare, 3.00pm, St Brendan’s Park, Birr, Karl O’Brien (Dublin)
Clare’s displays during this year’s round robin series will have fuelled their determination for next season. Offaly in their first year at senior level acquitted themselves well. Both will want to finish the season on a winning note. Clare’s guile and experience however should prove too much.
