SHOWDOWN SUNDAY IN ALLIANZ HURLING LEAGUE

It has been a hectic campaign so far and now it heads for an end-of-division blitz with key decisions being reached in the final round of group games next Sunday.

The main focus will be on Division 1, where in addition to deciding on the eight quarter-finalists and the pairings, promotion from 1B and the relegation pairing from 1A will also be settled.

DIVISION 1A: GALWAY AND TIPPERARY IN BATTLE FOR LAST SPOT

Sunday (2.0): Kilkenny v Dublin, Nowlan Park; Tipperary v Cork, Thurles; Waterford v Galway, Walsh Park.

Dublin, Kilkenny and Waterford, all of whom are on six points, have qualified for the quarter-finals and will be joined by Galway or Tipperary, who are both on three points. Tipperary host Cork in Thurles, having beaten the Rebels by 2-28 to 4-21 in last year’s Allianz Hurling League.

Cork, who have yet to take a point, are already certain to be in a relegation play-off with Tipperary or Galway. If Galway and Tipperary both win, Tipperary will go through to the quarter-finals as they have a 13 point superior scoring difference. That would also tip the scales Tipperary’s way if both draw. If they both lost, Tipperary would have to be beaten by 13 points more than Galway to be relegated. The winner of the Galway/Tipperary game will play Clare or Limerick in the quarter-final while the losers play Cork in the relegation play-off.

Dublin, who currently lead the way on scoring difference from Kilkenny and Waterford, head for Nowlan Park to take on the All-Ireland champions. Dublin won the corresponding fixture last year, the first time in 51 years that they beat Kilkenny in Nowlan Park. Waterford host Galway, a county against whom they have a good Allianz League record, having won in each of the last two years.
