Having last weekend off, we’re into round three of the Allianz National Hurling League and this this weekend couldn’t be bigger for Kilkenny.
Having bounced back last against Tipperary in round two following their league opening defeat at the hands of Waterford, Kilkenny welcome Galway to Nowlan Park at 2pm on Sunday in a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland Senior Hurling Final.
Like Kilkenny, Galway have one win from two and at even at this stage of the league, the fixture can be regarded as a crunch clash, taking place under the eye of Barry Kelly.
Galway enjoyed a 1-27 to 1-21 win over Cork on the same day Kilkenny lost to Waterford but they were denied a second straight win by a strong Dublin side two weeks ago, heading home on the back of a 1-17 to 0-13 loss.
We’ll bring you full commentary live from Nowlan park at 2pm on Sunday with thanks to Countrystyle Foods.
