Liberty Insurance Senior Camogie Championship Group 2
Kilkenny vs Dublin
Venue: Freshford 2.30pm Referee: Eamon Cassidy
The Kilkenny senior team will hope to make it two wins from two when they entertain Dublin in Freshford on Saturday at 2.30pm.
The Noresiders had a good opening round victory away to Derry in the first round on a 5-24 to 2-03 score line and sits proudly on the top of the table on score difference after the opening round of games. Kilkenny will be fully aware that Dublin will pose a different challenge on Saturday as the Metropolitans will hope to kick off there campaign in style after having a bye last weekend.
Dublin had a disappointing league campaign and finished bottom of the table. They began the league campaign with an opening round loss to Offaly 0-10 points to 0-06. In the second round they came up short to Galway 0-12 points to 0-05. In the third they secure a good draw with eventual Leinster champions Wexford 0-12 points apiece. In there fourth game they secured there first victory of the campaign with a 0-12 points to 0-10 win over Clare. In there final game Tipperary proved too strong on a 2-12 to 1-06 score line and as a result they finish at the foot of the table with Wexford edging them on score difference. In the Leinster championship Offaly proved too strong for the Dubs on a 3-13 to 1-09 score line.
Dublin have some talented players among there ranks with Siobhan Kehoe, Orla Beagan, and Ali Twomey all in impressive from for Dublin this season. I do expect a backlash from Dublin after there Leinster championship exit, but feel that Kilkenny will just come too soon for Dublin on Saturday and expect Kilkenny to claim there second victory of the campaign.
