The 2019 Hurling Championship starts with a bang this weekend and with so many contenders in the mix in both the Leinster and Munster Championships, the winner of this year's Liam MacCarthy is anyone's guess.

This weekend, will Kilkenny's season be on the line against Dublin and will the question marks over Tipperary be shown up against Cork? Can anyone stop Limerick? And what about Galway and Clare?

On this week's show, Will Slattery, Michael Verney and Vincent Hogan preview the likely winners and losers in Leinster, Munster and the All-Ireland championship, as well as looking at some of hurling's Rising Stars to look out for.

Don't miss the best analysis and interviews on the Throw-In throughout the summer.
