Roscommon v Meath; Kinnegad, 1.30pm (K Corcoran).

Meath walloped Fermanagh last weekend to begin their TG4 All-Ireland series in emphatic fashion, scoring 11-24 in the process.

Group 3, Round 2:

Clare v Kildare; Kinnegad, 3.30pm (J Devlin).

Clare have already secured an opening round victory over Down and now face a Kildare side smarting from defeat to Wexford.

That was the fourth time this year that Wexford had got the better of the Lilywhites, who need a win to keep their knock-out hopes alive.

Group 2, Round 2

Wicklow v Offaly; Clane, Kildare, 3.15pm (S Curley).

For various reasons, Wicklow were without a number of key players for last weekend’s TG4 Championship opener against Tyrone, and suffered a big defeat against the favourites for September glory.

Wicklow now face into a Leinster derby clash with Offaly in Clane, in a tie that is must-win for both sides.

With Tyrone expected to top this group, victory for Wicklow or Offaly in this key fixture would see them join the Red Hands in the quarter-finals.

Anthony Masterson’s Slaneysiders now face Down in a pivotal Group 3 fixture.

This is the only group in the Intermediate series with four teams and if Wexford can make it two wins out of two, they’ll take a big step towards the quarter-finals.
