AIB Munster GAA Hurling Championship Semi-Final: Newmarket-on-Fergus (Clare) v De La Salle (Waterford), Cusack Park, Ennis, 2pm
John Mullane’s De La Salle make the trip across to Clare to take on a Newmarket-on-Fergus side that has just won their first county title in 31 years, despite the team holding the record for number of county titles.
Amid wild celebrations in the town of Newmarket-on-Fergus, someone forgot to mention they would be taking on a team with an immense pedigree in the form of De La Salle, in a Munster semi-final so soon after a county final.
The Waterford outfit are former provincial champions of 2008 and 2010 and lost out to Galway’s Portumna in the All-Ireland final of the same year.
If De La Salle gets through this encounter they could go all the way and win the All-Ireland championship but a great hunger has overcome Newmarket-On-Fergus and who knows what the men form the west has up their sleeves for the Waterford men.
Verdict: De La Salle
