Was speaking to one of the players during the week and he feels they might but injuries are still in the squad and it's not a bad thing to keep the momentum going..

For me though give a good run out to a lot of the players that have been there, start a strong team and then empty the bench at halftime..

When is the final?

We have a pile of injuries at the minute so I'd have thought we wouldn't be playing a load of ones.

We never beat Kerry easy so would be nice to beat them.

Before the Leinster Hurling final Saturday the 4th of June, that game is at 7pm so guessing a 5pm start?

Antrim have already qualified for the Joe McDonagh Cup Final and the All-Ireland Preliminary Quarter-Finals.

Offaly can clinch second place if they draw with or defeat Carlow on Saturday. But if Carlow win that match and Antrim defeat Kerry, then Carlow will finish second above Offaly on the head-to-head rule.

If Carlow defeat Offaly and Kerry defeat Antrim, then Offaly, Kerry, and Carlow will all finish on six points each and will be separated by scoring difference. Kerry have a big advantage there currently with a scoring difference of +40, with Carlow on +16 and Offaly on +14.

This weekendís match between second from bottom Down and bottom of the table Meath is effectively a relegation play-off. If Down win or draw, Meath are relegated to the Christy Ring Cup for 2023. If Meath win, Down are relegated.

I would expect Offaly to win but I am not convinced we will beat Kerry as they need it more. I hope Down win and I expect they will be too good for Meath.

I didn't realise we were through to an all ireland quarter final already. That should be interesting. If we win the Joe McDonagh cup we play 3rd in munster which would be harder than losing and playing 3rd in leinster  :o

Joe McDonagh winners will play in the Leinster Championship next year.

No promotion for the runners up although the runners up will play the third place team in Leinster.

Looks like the Joe McDonagh winners will be playing Cork  8) 8)

Considering the team we had out not a bad outing. Good to see a few struggling for fitness getting game time too. Glad to see down win too.

Just saw there - itís Kerry again in the final. Carlow beat Offaly by 5. Didnít see that coming.

Massive result for Carlow in Offaly.. Kerry will be feeling that they are due a final win over Antrim

Carlow were very unlucky not to beat us. Theyíre a difficult side to play against.

Kerry not the easiest either. Will be a tight match.

The cushendun goalie scored a point from a puck out yesterday. From a puck out! Never heard of that before.

The wind down there is crazy, I remember the catch nets would be blowing past the posts onto the pitch!! Scoring a point was difficult  ;D
