Limerick vs Clare is the standout fixture of the day. Although the Treaty knocked the Banner out of the Munster Senior Hurling Championship in 2015, the pendulum has swung, and Davy Fitzgerald’s side will go in as hot favourites.
Wexford will be looking to gain revenge against the Rebels who knocked them out of the qualifiers last year, but will need to drastically improve. Cork were promising at times as they beat Dublin by three points on Saturday evening in Páirc Uí Rinn, and will be eager to build on the victory.
