Going through the qualifiers may actually prove an easier route to the super 8s than if we were to enter the competition as a provincial loser. With teams like monaghan, Tyrone and Mayo coming through the back door you could find yourself with a very difficult round four qualifier to make it into super 8. Going out now and if we can get past Derry and gain a favourable round 3 draw would see us having to face Cavan, Cork, Meath or Roscommon (if provincial finals go to form) to make the Super 8s. That should be the motivation for this Laois team. Bounce back in Owenbeg Saturday week and everything still to play for.

I think Sugru learned a lot from the loss to Westmeath in the Division 3 final and that was evident in the quarter-final encounter. I would expect him to have learned more about his team after the Meath game. If they can build upon this experience there is no reason why we cannot go to Derry and look to claim an away win in an Ulster ground which would be a great scalp. Granted it won't be easy as Derry have momentum with a hugely impressive win the last day out.
