Limerick v Waterford will face off in Division 1A of the hurling league on Sunday. The game takes place at 7pm in the Gaelic Grounds. We have a preview, team news and betting information below.
Limerick come into this top of the table clash with two wins from two games. John Kiely’s side came back from the dead to beat Tipperary in the opening round and they followed that up with an 8 point win over Galway two weeks ago. Players like Barry Nash, Declan Hannon and Dan Morrissey will be key in defence, while Graeme Mulcahy, Gearoid Hegarty and Seamus Flanagan will be key players in attack.
Liam Cahill’s Waterford are also unbeaten in the division with two wins from two. They recorded a win over Cork in the opening round 1-24 to 3-17, while in the next round they recorded a 2-24 to 1-25 win over Tipperary. Players like Stephen Bennett, Shane Bennett, Austin Gleeson and Pauric Mahony will be key players.

Limerick are the favourites here at odds of 4/11. Waterford are outsiders at odds of 11/4. For me it has to be a Limerick win with the form they are in at present. Graeme Mulcahy at 8/1 to be first goalscorer looks a great bet. Limerick v Waterford is live on Eir Sport at 7pm.
