Replying To munsterchamps:  "hard one to call as the standard in leinster has slipped a lot ........wexford havnt won a game of note in leinster for nearly 3 years ( excluding the facile win over laois last year). galway another team with a lot of ground to make up after a terrible year last year. kilkenny are still ktlenny hard to beat. dublin seem to have improved a bit and im going for dublin to win leinster."
I think the standard in Leinster has evened out and that is going to make it super competitively charged. Who ever emerges from that will be battle hardened and no push over for any of the Munster teams. Limerick for sure are clear leaders and deservedly favourites.

Dublin have had 2 big wins so far in the walsh cup but they've also been less experimental with their lineups. The league will give a better perspective of how they're progressing

We have only lost once in Leinster in normal time since 2018. Since 2016 we have only lost in 70 minutes in the Leinster final in 2017 to the eventual all Ireland Champions that year and in Nowlan Park by 1 point in 2018 apart from the poor performance in the covid championship in 2020. Our record in Leinster in the last 5 years isnt that bad.

Dublin will be very much focused on the league. Expect to see strongest team most days. Trolier back tomorrow is big boost. Optimistic as regards improvement but no where near the big guns yet.
