Shane and Michael preview the final round of the Joe McDonagh where there is a huge amount at stake at both ends of the table.
Offaly are already through to the Joe McDonagh Cup final with a game to spare, and this weekend face a Carlow side hoping to join them there.
Tom Mullally’s troops need to win to ensure their place in the decider, and Shane Stapeton is asked whether Johnny Kelly should play a strong Faithful XV considering they have nothing at stake here.
Michael Verney gives his thoughts on his native Offaly, and their run through this year’s competition.
Kerry will lock horns with Laois this weekend and both trail Carlow by just a single point in the table, meaning there is a possibility of all three teams finishing on six.
At the bottom end of the table, Kildare take on Down in a relegation clash with both sides entering this crucial game with zero points from four outings.
