Form Guide

Galway have no doubt been the in form side in the Leinster SHC so far, winning three and drawing one of their first four fixtures. Henry Shefflin's side beat Laois 2-37 to 0-21 last time out, sealing their progression from Leinster into the All Ireland series.

The Tribesmen had 14 different scorers on the day and Conor Cooney took his championship tally to 1-29 after scoring eight points in the rout over Laois. Galway had 14 different players score in the win, including goalkeeper Eanna Murphy.

Despite only leading by six points at half time, goals from Conor Whelan and Joseph Cooney put space between the sides before the final whistle.

Apart from their draw against Wexford in the first round of the championship, Galway have been in fantastic form and their attacking threat has potential to cause Dublin all sorts of trouble.

Dublin are sitting in third place in the Leinster SHC after three wins and one defeat in their four games so far.

Speaking to the media after the win against Laois, Henry Shefflin said;

“I’m expecting a serious challenge. We played them four months ago - 16th of January and we lost by 19 points.

“I suppose the Galway people know the challenge ahead of us. They know the record the last couple of years hasn’t been great."

A win this weekend will seal Galway's place in the Leinster SHC final, where they will meet Kilkenny or Wexford.
