Dublin v Carlow at Dr Cullen Park this Saturday, National Hurling League Division 1B. Home side Carlow have an uphill battle on recent form.
Carlow was defeated by Kilkenny 0-09 to 3-21 on the 2nd February whilst Dublin was defeated by Kilkenny 0-18 -3-21 earlier on the 26th January. The last season clash between the two ended with a win for Dublin. To date the Dubs have looked useful, this could be a big season for the county.
Carlow gained promotion 2 seasons ago and despite losing each of their matches to date, they have shown huge resolve and character. It is only a matter of time before the get the better of one of the bigger teams, but it is unlikely to be this weekend.
Carlow have yet to announce their starting fifteen for this match.
Players To Watch
Shane Kavanagh is the Carlow free taker and he can contribute much to his side this weekend.
Dublin are as short as 1/20 and while they should win, and win easily, this is a match to watch rather than have an interest in.
