They can park the Club Championship for a while.....only concern now is winning the Leinster Final and getting ready for a big All Ireland Semi Final.

Replying To Oldtourman:  "Sam
If ye win the All Ireland ye will have caught nobody. Ye won it in '17 because ye were the best team in Ireland that year and if ye win this year it will be because ye were the best team in '22. Limerick won it in '18, having knocked out the dual champions out of both the League and Championship and also knocking each of the big three. They were the best team in Ireland in'18 all day long."
I would still have to say that while Limerick had been arguably the best team all year in 2018, the All Ireland Final for me and for most Galway supporters in 2018 was yet another case of Galway not turning up, and been very poor for the guts of 60 mins that day. There is no doubt that Limerick probably should have won that game by at least 8 to 10 points, but it was a case of Limerick retreating into their shell coming down the stretch, and Galway coming to life in the last 10 minutes, and who knows what would have happened had Canning managed to put that late free over. Anyway it's all ifs and buts as per usual with Galway, and Limerick have now gone from strength to strength since 2018 (bar the blip in 2019) while Galway have regressed quite badly, although hopefully King Henry will lead us to the promised land during his tenure.

Good comfortable expected win v Laois, The team are playing very well together and looks like J.FLYNN and R Glennon are near back from injury.

Hopefully we can finish this phase with a win v Dublin and book our place in leinster final, anything less than a place in final is unacceptable at this stage imo. Direct route to Semi-finals please

Went to the well 4 times v Kilkenny & Clare, after the 'round robin' Leinster campaign. That was definitely once & possibly twice too many times imo, in that frequently scalding hot summer.

Agreed. We need to keep the momentum and go some way to addressing poor results against Dublin.
As poor as Dublin were against Kilkenny, there shouldn't be any room for complacency given what happened last year.

Dublin will be very dangerous after their display against Kilkenny so Galway will have to be at their best. Galway Abu!

I'd accept nothing less...I expect Galway to be the Leinster Final every year. Dublin and Wexford are going no where and Kilkenny are in transition

Kilkenny are still able to beat anyone on their day but I know what you mean. Dublin are missing a piece or two. Wexford are a strange enough team as they have some great pieces but something lacking.

I'm loving this....there is nobody talking Galway up or expecting much from us this year which is suiting us perfectly. As I said previously get through the Dublin game comfortably with a win and no injuries, Win the Leinster Final and then We can get ready for the All Ireland Semi Final.
HS is definitely getting a settled regular consistent starting 15 who are growing in confidence

There's a few lads on another thread who have you and Kilkenny 2 and 3 after Limerick. Based on what I don't know. Bizarre!
