Luck smiled on Kilkenny, Clare and Dublin as they earned home advantage for their Allianz Hurling League quarter-finals after a coin toss on Monday morning.

After Sunday's final round of games, Kilkenny will host Offaly, Tipperary travel to Clare, while Dublin will play out a repeat of last year's quarter-final against Limerick in the capital.

Wexford avoided the coin toss because they only played two of their games on their own patch, with their opponents Waterford togging out at home on three occasions. The Model County therefore have been given the home draw. 

Galway will be at home for the Division 1A relegation showdown with Cork.
