Are the defending Munster Champions still in this thing? You wouldn't know it by reading the thread.

Well, you obviously haven't read the thread, have you?

Cork - if Kingston was still in charge I'd have Cork as a shoe-in for the top 3 and for them to be better than last year.

Think top three will be Tipperary, Cork and Limerick, think Waterford and Clare will lose out.

I am not saying whether Limerick will win anything this year, …but as they [Clare] failed to beat Cork in their last away game I am not confident they will beat Tipp in Thurles. Even if they do so they will have to possibly beat Limerick and then Cork or Waterford to win Munster. Oldtourman (Limerick) - Posts: 1493 - 06/06/2018 09:40:47

If Limerick take it easy against Clare next week they might not be in a Munster Final. If Cork and Clare win then they are in the Munster Final on 6 points each The_Bull (Cork) - Posts: 234 - 10/06/2018 22:31:02 2109627

If Cork win next week they are through no matter what happens.
it's about Limerick, Clare, Cork and Galway this year.... they are all fine teams and would make mouthwatering All Ireland semi finals! katser (Galway) - Posts: 62 - 12/06/2018 10:59:38

Totally incorrect. The bones of the 2013 Cork team is still playing. They reached the 2014 and 2015 Munster finals as well and were and are good. PeggyShippen (Limerick) - Posts: 251 - 12/06/2018 18:10:59

Anyway, at the end of the day, we all know deep down, come the first Sunday in September. It'll be Cork v Kilkenny.

Replying To LohansRedHelmet:  "Condon should get a long long ban. One of the worst strikes I have seen in a long time."
It will hardly matter what Condon gets, as he will never play for Limerick again and definitely should not have been brought on before Hickey or McCarthy.

Hickey was poor before he went off injured. His best days are probably behind him sadly.

Condon will get the arbitrary one game ban and be back in time for the quarter final, it's the Munster Council after all.

richie mc is the most old school hurler playing the game.plays for the gallery and the big roar to the big clearance.
that is not how the game is played any more.

He's a better fullback then anyone Wexford has. He kept the Kilkenny full forward scoreless last year in Nowlan Park. He's better than Hickey and Bigger than Casey. Any of those 3 would get in Wexfords first 15

Well the occasional long clearance could also be beneficial as the five of the forwards that lined V Cork are 6'3'' or over and apart from that Ritchie can also give very effective short passes. He is certainly not one dimensional

Hard believe it's 20 years since Clare won a Munster title....hope they win it. If they did, the year would be a huge success whatever happens after that
