We may have started the weekend in one of the semi-final places but as the updated Division One table above shows, we’ve ended it in one of the relegation slots with only the poor hapless Kerrymen below us. (As KOB pointed out in the comments, if only two teams are level on points, then it’s the head-to-head record and not points difference that counts, which is why Down are a place above us). Kerry and Down meet next weekend in Tralee where, poor and all as the Kingdom are at the minute, you’d have to fancy them to get off the mark in that one.
We, meanwhile, have a home match against Kildare who must be feeling a bit shellshocked tonight following the thumping that Dublin gave them earlier on today. Kildare are already guaranteed their Division One status but now that all of the other teams are starting to catch up on them in terms of fitness, it’s just as well for them that they have those six points in the bag because it looks like they’ll struggle to add to that tally.
We’ll still need to put in a much improved performance, however, if we’re going to end this enormously frustrating losing streak when we face the Lillywhites at McHale Park next Saturday night. Can we do it? Time to vote.
