NFL Divisions 3 & 4 Preview

Division 3

Monaghan GAA

Monaghan lead the division and a win this weekend would leave them on the brink of promotion.

Monaghan v Wicklow

Top plays bottom in this tie.  A win for bottom side Wicklow would really tighten up the division but this would be a surprise.  Monaghan should have too much for Wicklow in this one.

Verdict: Monaghan

Antrim v Roscommon

Antrim lead Roscommon by a point in this very tight division.  Roscommon have disappointed to date in the league but are missing their St Brigid’s players.  Antrim earned a point last week against Fermanagh while Roscommon lost to Meath.  This will be a difficult trip for the Connacht side.

Verdict: Antrim 

Meath v Sligo

Meath got back to winning ways in beating Roscommon last time out.  This is a real relegation battle with Meath just one point ahead of Sligo.  Sligo have not been impressive in the league either this year but earned a credible draw against Cavan last week.

Verdict: Meath

Cavan v Fermanagh

Both sides have 5 points to date and the winner of this will take a massive step in the race for promotion.  This should be a tight tussle in Breffni Park.

Verdict: Cavan

Division 4

London GAA

London shocked Waterford by beating them in Ruislip last weekend.

Leitrim v Waterford

Waterford were shocked by London in their last outing, falling to the Exiles in a blow to their promotion hopes.  Leitrim lost narrowly to Offaly at home last weekend.   This promises to be another tight game in Carrick-on-Shannon.

Verdict: Leitrim

Offaly v Carlow

These sides are two of five sides locked on 5 points in a tight promotion race.  Both sides have been involved in a lot of 1 point games this season, Carlow with 3 and Offaly with 2.  There is a lot to play for in this game and it promises to be another tight affair for both sides.

Verdict: Offaly

Limerick v Tipperary

This all Munster affair sees unbeaten Limerick, who are one of two sides with a 100% record with the other being Dublin, face Tipperary.  Both sides had good championships last year.  Limerick have continued that into this season.  Much was also expected of Tipperary and after a disappointing start they are getting their campaign on track by winning their last two games.  Limerick will virtually guarantee promotion with a win.  Another close Division 4 encounter is expected here.

Verdict: Limerick
