Team news: Holders Cork make the trip to Clonberne for clash with Galway

SUNDAY – Galway (H) v Cork, 2.00pm, Clonberne, (G McMahon, Mayo)  

Having scalped the TG4 All-Ireland champions, can Galway defeat Lidl League holders Cork to make it two big wins in a week?

That question will be answered as Stephen Glennon’s charges entertain the visiting Rebelettes in Clonberne.

Galway’s win against Dublin benefited Cork as they took the chance to move into top spot, following victory over Mayo.

On ten points, Galway are still not assured of a semi-final place but a home victory would go a long way towards seeing them over the line.

Cork’s habit in recent years has been to build up a head of steam following a slow start and eventually claim League honours. On the evidence we’ve seen to date, they could be following a familiar trend.
