Wow! TG4 had about five minutes of "highlights" from the Laois v. Waterford match. Being way out west in the States, it was, by far, the most video coverage I have ever seen from a Laois match. It was a thrilling and (being the Waterford match) painful experience at the same time. :) :'(

TG4 also had some highlights from the Limerick v Tipp match. I was freezing my arse off just watching.

I was curious about Laois' record against Offaly over the last five years, so I did a little research and found the following:

2018
All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship
No matches against Offaly as Laois were now in the new Joe McDonagh Cup

Allianz National Hurling League
Offaly 1-21 v 1-16 Laois

2017
All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship
No matches against Offaly

Allianz National Hurling League
Laois 1-26 v 1-20 Offaly

2016
All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship
No matches against Offaly

Allianz National Hurling League
Offaly 1-17 v 0-15 Laois

2015
All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship
Leinster Senior Hurling Championship[?]
Laois 0-29 v 0-21 Offaly (Quarter-Final)[?]

Allianz National Hurling League
Offaly 1-24 v 0-23 Laois

2014
All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship
No matches against Offaly

Allianz National Hurling League
Offaly 2–14 v 1–19 Laois

I have a feeling there are some (maybe a lot of) mistakes on this--a work in progress. :-[
Please let me know of any errors or omissions. Thanks!

Walsh Cup 2019 - Laois 2-16, Offaly 1-16. Amazing how the results are alternating. If the pattern is a predictor, it is Offaly's turn....

We've done well in Tullamore in the league and Offaly have been getting the better of us in O'Moore park. All previous form won't matter a whole pile when they start getting stuck into each other.

Yeah, as I was finishing typing up my post I realized that teams, circumstances, and conditions are ever changing and that past results will mean little on Saturday week.

So long as we win the relegation play-off, then! In fact, we'll be playing them four times this year altogether - if the relegation play-off does transpire (and I think it will) - so a clean-sweep would be a juicy prospect!
Anyone know how bad Cha's injury is?

I wouldn't be at all shocked if Carlow end up v Laois/Offaly in the relegation play off.

Carlow have a lovely habit of imploding, its a great enjoyment of mine to watch on as it happens.

This is not like any Carlow team I have ever seen. Div 2 champions last year, McDonagh champions 2018 including giving us a good hiding. Showed well against Dublin and drew with a better Galway than played us (and we were happy enough to lose by 9 points). The quality of their hurling and hurlers is currently a good level above ours. We would underestimate them at their peril. They would be deserved and clear favourites against us or Offaly in a relegation final.

I dont underestimate them, especially given the problems within our own set up. They're simply better than us.

Looking ahead at the changes for Division 1, next year, my understanding is that there will be two groups of roughly equal standing. Does anyone know how the relegation will be handled at the end of the season? I am guessing the bottom team of each group will face off against each other, with the losing team playing the winner of Division 2. Does anyone know much about these upcoming changes? Thanks.

It will mean more beatings by big scores.

That is for sure! From what I've been able to find written about these changes I can only conclude it will be brutal for the likes of Laois and Offaly (and possibly West Meath).

The Club Colours thing is a novel idea- bit random from a visuals point of view. Hopefully attracts a crowd though!

Any word on a likely team for Saturday? How are we injury wise?
