Was never a red based on how he's been ref'ing it so far, based on other games it's a black card and ten minutes in the bin..

Only one winner here now

If you get a red for interfering with the helmet then the Offaly boy pulled his face guard off and deserved it... If... definitely penalty though.

Decent enough game this.

There was no intent in that

Carlow win after extra time.  2-29 to 1-31.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Leinster looks to have fallen into Europa Conference territory rather than Europa League.

Kilkenny & Galway stroll and Wexford look set for relegation.

What can be done to make it a more balanced Championship plus all reviews and previews.

Interesting but this is because Limerick slipped back into the pack. It's a fantastic summer of hurling with each week better than the previous one but it may not happen again for 5 years.
Wexford have an injury crisis which is not permanent either. Wexford have a decent underage record.

Another podcast touched on Wexford persisting with lads who're obviously not fully fit which begs the question is there no confidence from Management on some of the panelists and did they blood enough younger players during the league. Irrespective they really should be seeing off Westmeath at their leisure and deal with high balls better than they did.

Also, Lets call it for what it is, a much improved Tipp (from last year) drew with a playing poorly Limerick, Limerick sort out their malaise, which isn't a given and we'll know more this weekend and they're still favourites to win the AI. Limerick shot selections poor on the day again with a very poor return.
Kiely certainly called out a few stars who failed to perform on Sunday after getting taken off, so it'll be interesting if they respond in kind. I think he also needs to introduce some fresh blood, something Cody did every once in a while managed to do to keep them on top.

As for the Leinster v Munster champions league/conference comment, I wouldn't be betting too much on Clare or Tipp beating either Galway or Kilkenny later on this summer. Don't confuse a closeness in the games with quality as we saw when KK overturned Clare with ease last summer.
Both Leinster teams have the ability/opportunity to peak later on in the year, the Munster counties have been hammering seven bells out of each other the last few weeks.

Yeah, real action only starts in Croke Park.

Leinster teams are waiting in the long grass!

As an aside, a point almost missed at the week-end was T.J. becoming top scorer in the championship on Saturday. Some achievement.  It was mentioned on GAA Go and then Pat Horgan overtook him on Sunday.  Another fine achievement. 

Who goes the furtherest in this years championship could define the top scorer ever in the hurling championship.  What an accolade that is to have.  GAA should be making more of these lads rivalry as it's unprecedented.

Imagine T.J., Pat, Joe and Seamie all making their debuts inside a week of each other and are still going strong years later and the scores they're racked up.  4 of the finest.  As I say a great achievement.

Good article here re: my point about TJ/Pat H.

Carlow win after extra time.  2-29 to 1-31.

Joe Mc Donagh another great final, like Antrim V Kerry last year.  Very high scoring last year and the same yesterday.

Great achievement by Carlow. Some core group of players.  They just keep going.  I'd have fancied Offaly before hand and then fancies them in extra-time after they crawled back to get the draw.  But credit to Carlow.  Some finish.

Apparently Offaly had 26 wides. They have more work to do and if Wexford get relegated it will take Offaly a minimum of 2 seasons to get promoted.

Wexford match now a draw. If this is the result and Antrim win do Westmeath get relegated ?

Seamie Flanagan takes a point after 15 steps.

Some start to this game.

Antrim won't have any hang ups against Westmeath, this game, regardless of injuries was the pivotal game of the championship for us. We have been scoring well and getting goals. 3-21 should win it and if Westmeath top that then fair play and well deserved.

We just have to match the early intensity they'll bring at the start and settle into the game. The bookies have the game with us very slim favourites


Bitta trumpet blowing ;)

If Cork can keep up this intensity and Limerick con... scratch that! This is a cracker
