Kilkenny, Clare and Dublin all came out on the right side of their respective coin toss to gain home advantage for their Allianz Hurling League Division 1A quarter-finals.

Wexford earned the right to host their game because they only had two home games whereas Waterford had three in their divisional programmes.

In the other three pairings (Kilkenny v Offaly, Dublin v Limerick, Tipperary v Clare), the counties involved had the same number of home games - hence, the need for a toss.

Galway will be at home for the Division 1A relegation showdown with Cork.

The ties will be played over the weekend of 2/3 April, with throw-in times and venues to be confirmed.
