Seen as they won the minor three years ago you would hope they will go close again this time. They will need O'Brien and O'Riordan fully onboard.

Backs look good, I hope there is enough firepower up front should be a good game

Should be a great game. Limerick v badly need this win. We have lost 3 matches in three different categories in last week. 2 v strong looking teams when you throw in waterford it looks like a particularly strong championship .

munsterchamps,Hard to know he has not trained much with hurlers this year due to football...you cant be as sharp if you are not training in hurling.
Dont think he stands out much at senior club level,hopefully a good ball-winner though.
We have good work-rate in those forwards but not sure we have enough prolific marksmen with exception of John McGrath.

Wexford are also there, its a seriously competitive championship..problem for is wexford have had no challenge yet and will now play 1 game between now and mid-september v Antrim so that will count against them.

He has still been hurling all this time. Playing with his club etc. Don't see how his hurling would have went backwards....

Have they really not had a challenge yet? Would you not say Offaly game was a challenge as Wexford couldn't pull away. Wexford let Offaly still be in contention through poor mistakes etc
