If a team plays away one weekend, and has to play the same team six days later, they should surely, based on any loose interpretation of natural justice, be granted a home fixture.
The Galway hurlers will know better than anyone that they need to up the intensity and passion, and produce a better overall performance than last Sunday if they are to beat Dublin in O'Connor Park, Tullamore, on Saturday (4.45pm).
