Hard to say who is better between Wexford and Clare. I'd nearly go with Wexford after beating Galway in Salthill and Kilkenny home and away.

Exactly. Hard to put tipp as far as second either to be fair

whoever done them ratings hasn't a clue......Yeah galway are number 1 alright, and I suppose the 3 other semi finalists but after that its a bit silly...dublin were bloody awful...should b more down , including Kilkenny, while Westmeath should b above offaly and laois after their battling performance against tipp, who despite all their so called problems did run galway to a point

In fairness they caught Kilkenny on a bad day and Kilkenny still should have won missing lots of clear goal chances

Kilkenny could have bet Waterford and lost after extra time whereas Wexford were never going to beat Waterford and game was a foregone conclusion. Great to see Wexford back up again.

Kilkenny got 2 goals from frees and 1 goal was a bit of a freak in the Leinster SHC game v Wexford.
Davy's team were superior that evening.

That rankings thing is some joke.....who thought of it???? Fair enough top 4 no problem with but after that....not done properly...offaly and dublin should be way back on the list..westmeath bottom.of the pile..dont think so....like they did give tipp a good game compared to likes of offaly and dublin who ended up demolished in their respective games...and wexford shoukd be above kilkenny too

Since when was the beaten finalist not ranked number 2. Tipp did not make the final and ranking them above Waterford is biased to the extreme. After two its may be subjective as to who is number 3 or 4 but no question as to who is two.
