Shane Stapleton and Fintan O’Toole preview the National Hurling League clash between Limerick and Westmeath.

Sunday: Clare v Galway, Ennis, 1.45; Westmeath v Limerick, TEG Cusack Park, 2.0; Cork v Wexford, Pairc Ui Chaoimh, 3.45.

Cork haven’t won the Division 1 title for 25 years but have given every indication that they intend to end that barren run this season with three wins from their first three games with Limerick, Galway and Westmeath.

A win at home to Wexford on Sunday would put them in a strong position to earn a semi-final place heading into the final round where they will play Clare.

Wexford beat Cork by three points in last year’s League. Wexford won all five group games last year but have found it tougher this year, losing two of their first three games.

Limerick (4 pts) are well-positioned as they prepare to face Westmeath who have lost all three games to date. They came up from Division 2A this year and have struggled at the higher level, losing to Clare, Wexford and Cork.

Clare (4pts) v Galway (2pts) clashes are always very intense and no doubt Sunday’s clash will continue that pattern. Galway won by two points in last year’s League. They need to win to have any chance of reaching the semi-finals.
