It’s amazing how a Kilkenny supporter’s mind works. Making my way back to the car last Saturday evening after the Cats had dished out another hammering to Wexford I asked a few fans for their thoughts, thinking that an 11-point victory would have left them content, how wrong I was.
These are worrying times for Galway United, who have suffered seven agonising defeats on the trot, and Saturday’s trip up the N17 to face Sligo Rovers will be another significant challenge.
Ray Silke asks three different local hurling aficionados who they think will be victorious on Sunday at Pearse Stadium and why.
Galway footballers will have to improve enormously on the wretched and pitiful second-half display they produced against Kerry last weekend if they are to get anything out of their joust with Tyrone in Tuam this Sunday (2.30pm) .Based on last weekend, one side appears to be on an upward graph and the other on a downward spiral.
The four Mayo clubs in the Connacht Junior League 1A all had a bad weekend last time out with Castlebar, Westport, Ballina, and Ballinrobe all going down in round two of the league. Bottom of the table Ballinrobe shipped a 39 point defeat at the hands of table toppers Sligo to leave them rooted to the floor of the table, with Oísin Gill the only man to get a score for Ballinrobe in a 42-3 loss. It was always going to be tough for Ballinrobe this year to make the step up to the top flight. They did manage to get a bonus point in their first game away to OLBC, but last weekend’s hammering at the hands of Sligo could put a serious dent in their title credentials. They do have a shot at redemption this weekend when they make the short trip to Carrowholly where they face the Bulls of Westport. But it will be another tough ask and a losing bonus point is all that they really could hope for.
