Jackie Tyrrell and John Fogarty of the Irish Examiner join Mikey Stafford and Rory O'Neill after a bizarre weekend of hurling.

While Wexford ignited their championship with a rousing win over old foes Kilkenny in Nowlan Park, Waterford and Tipperary exited with barely a whimper, as Clare and Cork respectively put them to the sword.

Jackie thinks Brian Cody has work to do ahead of Leinster final showdown with Henry Shefflin's Galway, and the middle of the field is his major concern. For Wexford a fit Lee Chin is huge, literally and metaphorically, and the lads think they could have a bearing on the championship yet.

John was very unhappy with Tipperary's showing in Thurles, but particularly the lack of support and there is a job of work for Colm Bonnar to do there.

However it is in Waterford where the most questions will be asked after a bizarre and listless departure at the hands of a Clare side, who top the table going into a Munster final against neighbours Limerick.

Questions for Cahill and questions for the GAA over the viability of the league so close to the provincial round robin.

There is some debate over the fact Kerry, should they win the Joe McDonagh final against Antrim, will have to face Tipperary in a play-off. Not only would it be a third game in as many weeks, after the Joe Mc final and All-Ireland provisional quarter-final, but it is not something Antrim would face to get back into Leinster.

The lads also react to the football qualifier draw, which pits Mayo against Monaghan and Tyrone against Armagh.
