Big difference in standards in the leagues so it's not the full story to say Carey were poor and Sars were great. Carey still a very young team with a large number having final experience albeit losing which will stand to them. Carey by 2

It will be close. This will be the hardest test, Sarsfields are team on a good run of form and I cant see them crumble like the other teams we have faced in the Championship thus far. I hope we can put the final hoodoo to bed and not bottle it like previous years.

Sarsfields to win handy. The club has got itself back in a good place  this year with the footballers only needing to turn up to win the junior. 12/13 players involved in both codes and have only lost 1 game between football/hurling in both league and championship this season. Carey on the other hand have put all their eggs in one basket hoping that the league will be re-structured to retain their league status and focused on championship. Sarsfields by 6 or 7 with the only thing that may give Carey a squeak is the injury Niall McKenna is carrying and he is rated as 50/50 to play but I would be very surprised if he doesn't make an appearance he is  a class act on his day.

He'll be playing alright. Only suffered a dislocated finger in our game, unless something happened him in the mean time.

I'm surprised at that. One of the most common injuries I've seen in our squad in the last few years. Pop it back in support with some tape and play on. His must be particularly bad.

Thats a pity, have seen similar injury and a lad back playing within 2 weeks albeit with the finger taped up, clearly just lucky. Disappointing for him to miss the final, a fine hurler who would only add to the spectacle.

Carey to edge it, conditions will play a big part in the game and think carey will deal with them better! McKenna a big loss for Sarsefields

I have no doubt he will be playing, seen the same crap on here every year around champ time - xxxx isn't playing , xxxxx is injured

Suspect the pitch is going to be a bog given all the rain - one of the matches is bound to be moved elsewhere.

Hopefully Sarsfields come into the game with the right attitude, Carey won't be a push over, Carey are due a win and have dispatched good teams along the way and played in higher division so the closer this gets to throw in the more it's a fifty fifty game! Good luck to both teams

Sarsfields were seriously impressive - 6 points didn't do justice to the scoreline. 2 disallowed goals by Cunning on top of that.
Their running was a joy to watch. How many yellow cards did Cunning hand out?? He seemed to enjoy the attention.
