Laois have won the last three meetings between these sides at this level.

Wexford lost out by a point to All-Ireland champions Kilkenny last time out and should have enough here.

Verdict: Wexford

Christy Ring Round 2

(extra-time if necessary)

Division 1-bound Kerry can build on their winning start against Down last week.

Wicklow were demolished by Meath, while Down lost to Kerry, but they can bounce back here.

Christy Ring Round 1 Replay

(extra-time if necessary)

Kildare v London, Newbridge, 1.0, J O'Brien (Tipperary)

Reigning champions Kildare managed a draw in Ruislip last weekend and with home advantage Brian Lawlor's side should be able to go one better.

Verdict: Kildare

Tyrone v Armagh, Carrickmore, 5.0, E Hasson (Derry). Verdict: Tyrone

Leinster GAA SHC Round Robin

Westmeath v Antrim, Mullingar, 3.30, H Horgan (Tipperary)

Both sides won their opening game and while a second success here won't guarantee progress into the Leinster championship quarter-final, it will see the winners take a big step in that direction.

Michael Ryan's Westmeath won't have it all their own way against a rejuvenated Antrim. They beat Laois last week as they look to put the disappointment of their shock relegation from Division 1B behind them and they might just have the edge in a close game.

Verdict: Antrim

Carlow v Laois, Netwatch Cullen Park, 3.30, D Kirwan (Cork)

Both sides lost their first-round game and defeat here would likely put qualification out of their reach. Laois pushed Antrim hard in Ballycastle and that form, along with their experience of hurling in a higher division, could see them past the home side.

Verdict: Laois

Division 1 final

Cork v Galway, Parnell Park, 3.45, G Corrigan (Down)

Galway are major underdogs as they look to deny the Rebelettes a third consecutive Division 1 title. The Tribeswomen have made great strides under Kevin Reidy and although they may well push Cork close, the class of Eamonn Ryan's side will shine through.

Verdict: Cork

Division 2 final

Armagh v Donegal, Parnell Park, 2.0, G Carmody (Mayo)

Donegal's Geraldine McLaughlin is one of the finest attacking talents in the country and her influence should tip the balance of the tie in her side's favour against an Armagh outfit that won promotion just last year.

Verdict: Donegal

Division 3 final

Sligo v Waterford, Parnell Park, 12.15, J Murphy (Carlow)

Waterford are likely to have enough to claim the title as they have been in excellent form and are the only team across all four divisions to maintain a 100pc winning record.

Verdict: Waterford
