WEATHER

Cold and windy on Saturday with sunny intervals and widespread squally showers. Some of the showers will be of hail and sleet in northern areas with a risk of isolated thunderstorms. Highest temperatures will range from 4 to 7 degrees generally but reaching 8 or 9 degrees along the south coast. Winds will be strong west to southwest in direction with gales or strong gales along northern coasts.

Rather cloudy to start the day on Sunday with some mist and drizzle. However, it is expected to brighten up with good dry periods for a time. However, by late afternoon cloud will thicken in the southwest and rain will spread across much of Munster and Connacht by evening time. Maximum temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees.

Weather to hurl or not

For the third year in a row, the elements have disrupted the best laid plans of mice and GAA fixture planners.

Last week's postponements due to Storm Dennis, which oddly enough mostly affected Group A of Division 1, mean that the final will have to be pushed back from the original intended date of 22 March and will now likely be a double-header with the football final, as it was in 2019, a week later.

High winds were the cause of Galway v Tipperary and Limerick v Waterford being called off last week and authorities will be hoping this weekend's gusts aren't worse than forecast.

Those games will be re-fixed, meaning two of this week's match-ups are between teams that have had three weeks off against one. Will Tipp and Limerick be rested or rusty against Westmeath and Cork respectively?

Saturday night lights

The action begins at Croke Park on Saturday when Dublin host Wexford as part of a double-header with the capital's five-in-a-row winning footballers.

Both teams won in the wind last week: Dublin had 11 points to spare over Carlow and Wexford battled past Kilkenny in a 1-16 to 1-14 victory that led Cats great Jackie Tyrrell to dub them "resilient" and "really hard to beat".

The sides each have four points from three games and there hasn't been much between them in recent years.

Last year's Leinster SHC meeting was a draw (Dublin 1-22 Wexford 2-19) and the Model men were two-point victors the year previous.

Beating the Leinster champions would be a big confidence boost for Dublin as they seek to move on from the low of last season's All-Ireland preliminary quarter-final exit to Laois.

Eddie Brennan's men are also out tomorrow night - they host Carlow at O'Moore Park.

Given both sides have no points from three games, this already looks a fifth-place decider with the likely prize of avoiding a relegation play-off a huge one for the winners.

Laois' 22-point scoring advantage over Carlow means a draw would be a better result for them.

Rivalries renewed

Tomorrow sees the latest installments in two of the the fiercer rivalries of recent years.

Limerick and Cork have had some fascinating battles since John Kiely took charge in 2017.

The Treaty men won an epic All-Ireland semi-final on the way to lifting Liam McCarthy in 2018 but lost in both League and Munster to the Rebels last year - not that it stopped them claiming both titles.

Limerick are one of three remaining unbeaten teams alongside Waterford and Clare and were impressive in beating Galway and Tipperary.

Cork have edged Tipp and Westmeath since going down to the Déise first day out and will welcome the chance to test themselves against the form team of the division at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

Damien Cahalane is suspended after seeing red against Westmeath.

Galway enjoyed a double over Waterford in 2017 in the League quarter-final and All-Ireland final but Sunday's opponents twice got the better of them last year.

Waterford fought back to win in both the 1B meeting and League semi in 2018, the latter game when Joe Canning sustained a groin injury that torpedoed his season.

Canning had already been expected to be available for selection against Limerick last week so could feature in the trip to Walsh Park.

Fintan Burke, a cousin of David and Eanna, is in line for his debut having been named in he team for last week's postponed game.

Peter Duggan and Padraig Walsh will not be facing off this weekend

Clare are three from three in Group B and can secure their place in the knock-out stages by beating Kilkenny in the League for the third year in a row.

The Banner seem to have tightened up defensively under new manager and former full-back Brian Lohan - they didn't concede a goal in their wins over Carlow, Wexford and Laois.

Kilkenny have raised seven green flags, however, just one less than Cork, and will be confident of hitting the net against Clare at Nowlan Park as they seek to get back on track after losing to Wexford.

The Ballyhale bunch will remain absent as they recover from their All-Ireland club winning exertions, as will Padraig Walsh, who won the intermediate crown with Tullaroan.

Tipperary host Westmeath at a rare league fixture in Nenagh. Semple Stadium is on standby if the pitch fails to pass an inspection.

The Lake men pushed Cork hard last week but Seamus Callanan, John 'Bubbles' O’Dwyer and Barry Heffernan could all make their first starts of the campaign as Liam Sheedy looks to get off the mark.

Having missed out on promotion last year after losing the Division 2A final to Westmeath, Kerry have won their first three games by an average of over eight points, with Fitzgibbon Cup star Shane Conway in superb form. 

Victory over Wicklow on Sunday might even be enough to already secure their place in the final. Wicklow, who were promoted from 2B last year, had their first win last week last weekend when they beat Mayo.

The Offaly-Antrim game was called off, leaving both with a match in hand on Kerry. Offaly travel to Castlebar to take on Mayo, who have yet to win a game, while Antrim host Meath, whom they beat by a point in last year's League.

Kildare, Down, Derry and Roscommon are all on four points in Division 2B. However, Kildare and Derry have played a game less than the others. Derry beat Warwickshire by four points in last year’s League. London and Warwickshire have yet to pick up a point this season.

Armagh and London continue to lead the way at the top of the Division 3A table after drawing last weekend. Both are on five points, followed by Donegal and Tyrone, who are both on four points.

All five counties are on two points in Division 3B, but Sligo have played only one game, whereas Cavan have played three and Leitrim, Lancashire and Fermanagh have each played twice.
