They will get their season back on track against Laois today and then have Offaly at home next weekend. It's all set up nicely for them -- indeed, these guys could well be hurling into August if the draws continue to go right for them.

There's also a great incentive for Antrim, Westmeath and Carlow, the trio on the other side of the first-round draw.

Antrim to win and set up a clash with Carlow next week.
