Form worries Quaid

Joe Quaid admits Westmeath's form is a concern ahead of Sunday's Allianz Hurling League Division 2A final against Kerry, despite having not lost a game yet in 2019.

The Lake County captured the Kehoe Cup in January before qualifying for the divisional final on the back of five straight wins, the second of which was over Kerry in Tralee. However, their laboured win over Meath in the penultimate round would suggest that Division 1 hurling in 2020 is by no means a certainty.

“We haven't been hurling as well as we probably should be, but, look, I'll take mediocre performances and victories over good performances and losses any day," the Westmeath manager told

“We're still in a transition period of getting to know the players and they're getting to know our ways. But, look, they're excellent hurlers up there. I suppose the big thing we're trying to do is to just impose our style on it and all get used to each other.

“We've played Kerry already and I suppose we got out of jail down there so we're under no illusions. They gave us three soft goals that day. They had us well beaten in Tralee the day we played them so we know what we're up against on Sunday.”
