All Ireland Hurling Championship 2018


#1708

Why did you leave the group?


#1709

Jaysus the Carkies are using all sorts to try and get Galway lads suspended


#1710

I could say something very distasteful but I won’t.


#1711

Clare v Wexford, Saturday at 3pm in Cork.

Limerick v Kk, Sunday at 2pm in Thurles.

Both live on RTE.


#1712

This has been an entertaining few hours but good to have the venues finally confirmed.

Pity it isn’t the other way round.


#1713

Wexford by 3
Limerick by 8


#1714

I’d say they’ll hardly get 15k for the match in Cork on a Saturday afternoon.


#1715

There will be a good Wexford crowd. Clare won’t travel.


#1716

My lasses birthday party is at five. Will @bandage and @Big_Ducky_Moloney tell them to get a move on.


#1717

Commentator’s eye.


#1718

I’m sure it’s been dealt with already but I couldn’t be arsed reading back. If either or both of Kilkenny and Clare win, repeat provincial finals are avoided at semi final stage. What happens if both Wexford and Limerick win? Is there any proviso to avoid repeat provincial meetings from the round robin stage?


#1719

Clarehurlers has gone into meltdown. They’ll be lucky to even get 15 players who could be arsed going to this.


#1720

Open draw.


#1721

#1722

Provincial Champions play a quarter-final winner, draw to be made to determine pairings subject to the respective provincial champions not meeting the defeated finalists from their own province at this stage and, where feasible, the avoidance of repeat pairings.


#1723

So from a Limerick POV, we play Cork if Clare win & play Galway if Wexford win.


#1724

we play Cork if Clare - Correct
play Galway if Wexford - Open Draw


#1725

we play cork full stop if we win


#1726

It’ll be Galway v Limerick & Cork v Wexford


#1727

it won’t. it’ll be cork v limerick and galway v wexford
