Cork will hope to avenge last years All Ireland final final defeat to Davy Fitzgerald’s men. Clare will be hoping to win the Muster title this year after losing to Cork last year.

Form guide

The Banner County played 5 games in Division 1a with a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat. They then defeated Laois on a score line of 2-23 to 2-19 in the Quarter final before losing in the Semi final to Tipperary on a score line of 2-24 to 2-17. Cork enjoyed a decent league campaign winning 4 games and drawing in division 1B before losing to Tipperary in the Quarter Final. They needed a replay to get past Waterford in eventually getting past the Deise County on a score line of 0-24 to 0-17.

Duel of the game

Shane O’Neill V Podge Collins

Bishopstown Shane O Neil is one of Cork longest serving players having made his debut back in 2007 for Cork. O’Neill is a tenacious and aggressive player and he is up against elusive Corner forward Podge Collins who lit up the championship last year.

Collins may drift out to the pitch to pick up the breaking ball and if Cork elects to keep O’Neill in the corner they may struggle to pick up the breaks in the middle third. Davy Fitzgerald may have a trick up his sleeve with this battle.

Team news

Cork name an unchanged team from their last match against Waterford. Their side includes 11 from last year’s All Ireland final defeat to Clare.

Cork :A Nash; S O’Neill, D Cahalane, S McDonnell; C Joyce, M Ellis, L McLoughlin; D Kearney, A Walsh; C Lehane, B Cooper, S Harnedy; A Cadogan, P Cronin, P Horgan.

Clare are yet to announce their team but should welcome Podge Collins back after his exploits with the Clare footballers. His brother Sean has however committed to the footballers for their replay against Waterford.

Verdict

There is very little to separate these sides as is evident by their head to head last years in championship. Cork won the first game in the Munster championship; there was then a draw in the first All Ireland final and Clare winning the final encounter to claim the All Ireland title. In what should be a very exciting game of hurling it is very hard to split the sides. Cork however have come off the back of the 2 tough games So one would think Clare may just have a little extra. I predict Clare to win by 1-3 points. Cork to be leading at half time and Clare to be leading at full time is 4/1 in what looks to be a stand out bet.
