On this week's episode of The Throw-In, Will Slattery is joined by Alan Brogan, John Mullane, Martin Breheny and Conor McKeon to go over all the weekend's action.

Will, Alan and Conor start with football, as they react to Carlow beating Kildare for the first time since 1953. Can Turlough O'Brien's men realistically make the Super 8s? Kildare are at rock bottom now and the lads don't think they can rebound this season.

Dublin also got their All-Ireland title defence started against Wicklow in Portlaoise, and Conor discusses the main takeaways from the one-sided encounter in Portlaoise.

Martin and John join Will for the hurling discussion, and the Waterford legend is very sombre about his county's chances after shipping a huge number of injuries against Clare.

The lads also discuss Tipperary's comeback against Cork, and Martin breaks down Galway's win over Kilkenny in what was their first ever home game in the Leinster championship.
