Mikey Stafford and Rory O'Neill are joined by Brendan Cummins and Eoin Ryan to reflect on the All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals, while Kevin McStay and Paul Fitzpatrick of the Anglo-Celt look back on the Tailteann Cup semi-finals.

Clare's bench made the difference against Wexford, but credit to Darragh Egan's side for stifling the Clare attack for so long. Brendan gives us some insight into what was a tough day in Semple for three of the four goalkeepers, while Eoin explains why hurling's 'black card' rule is almost impossible to implement.

Cork will rue their errant shooting against Galway for some time, while Brendan reckons Henry Shefflin will be delighted to have won through to face Limerick without playing well but with an awful lot of improvement possible.


Paul reflects on a patchy Cavan performance, where their superior physical conditioning made all the difference against an improving Sligo.

Westmeath were at their free-scoring best against a depleted Offaly, with Kevin agog at some of the stats from the game.

The Tailteann has been viewed as something of a success thus far, so Paul and Kevin ask if it is not time for a third tier?
