BORD GÁIS ENERGY LADIES NFL PREVIEWS ROUND 5

BORD GÁIS ENERGY LADIES NFL PREVIEWS ROUND 5

(All games Sunday 15th March unless stated)

 

Division 1a:

 

Donegal v Kerry
Castlefin, 12noon (L McDonagh)

Donegal appear to have gotten their house in order after a rocky start to the campaign and in recent matches they have shown their quality. They cannot make the play-offs but a win would give them a good chance of avoiding relegation. Kerry’s place in the next round is secure but they will not want to be playing either of the top seeds from Division 1b so a win here will give them an easier route to a semi-final berth.

 

Laois v Mayo
O’Moore Park, 2.00pm (J Murray)

The winner of this match will determine who emerges as the top seed from Division 1a. Mayo have not travelled well this season which might give the O’Moore County an edge as they have a 100% record at home. Laois will be desperate to avoid the possibility of being leapfrogged by Kerry in the play-off seedings so will want to top the group and secure an easier draw for the knock-out stages.

 

Armagh v Tyrone
Athletic Grounds, 2.00pm (T McShea)

Armagh need to win by 6 clear points if they are to steal the final play-off place from their Ulster rivals. Tyrone’s form has been inconsistent at best and the loss to Donegal last time out will have done their confidence no good at all. If the real Tyrone turns up they should have enough to ensure they scrap into the play-offs.

 

Division 1b:

 

Cork v Monaghan (SATURDAY 14th)
CIT, 3.00pm (K Delahunty)

The replay of last year’s All Ireland final again has high stakes on the table. Both have been beaten by Dublin so now both are locked in a battle for second spot. Cork’s defeat to Dublin came as a surprise but the Rebelettes don’t make a habit of losing two games on the bounce. Monaghan are still trying to recapture the form of last summer so may have to content themselves with the knowledge that they are emerging from a very tough group.

 

Dublin v Clare
Naomh Mearnóg, 2.00pm (M Ryan)

With four wins from four the Jackies are safe in the knowledge that a top two seeding is secured. Dublin are unbeaten in the league in almost two years now and will want to maintain that record at home against Clare. Newly promoted Clare have secured their Division 1 status and should barring a complete disaster make the play-offs. Clare need to stay within a couple of scores of Dublin and hope that Kildare do not put a big score on Galway.

 

Galway v Kildare
Menlough, 1.00pm (D McEnery)

This is a straight relegation shoot-out with the winner guaranteed Division 1 football in 2010. Galway have struggled to compete this year and the only thing working in their favour this weekend is home advantage. Kildare are slowly improving and have been competitive in their last two games so their improved confidence may be the deciding factor.
