Jackie Tyrrell and Colm Keys of the Irish Independent join Mikey Stafford and Rory O'Neill to look ahead to the weekend's Allianz League action.

With Tipp travelling to Kilkenny, Cork facing Galway in Salthill and Clare visiting a heaving Gaelic Grounds, we have a few tasty encounters in store.

There is also some discussion on Davy Fitzgerald's need for drama, which Jackie confirms Brian Cody could also use to his advantage on occasion.

The ever-increasing physicality of hurling and whether we will ever see another Cha Fitzpatrick of Joe Deane is tackled - the lads all insist there is still room for the knacky little corner-forward or a cute, diminutive corner-back.

Finally, Jackie gives his take on the place of the Fitzgibbon Cup and Colm offers is own solution to the GAA's calendar woes.
