Last weekend seen round two of the Division One Irish Daily Star National Camogie league, lets take a look at current standings.
In group one, 2015 All-Ireland finalists Galway currently sit top of the table on six points. With two wins from two, Galway now face Midlanders Offaly this weekend on home soil and will be intending on continuing their unbeaten streak. Offaly and Galway is always a physical, tight affair and the faithful girls will be eyeing up this opportunity ambitiously.
Eagerly chasing their tails is Clare, who also have had great success so far now face Tipperary in an All-Munster clash in Clare. Sharpshooter Chloe Morey will be Clare’s one to watch as the number 14 has racked up huge scores against Offaly and Wexford.
Wexford and Offaly both are level with one win a piece in the middle of the table. This weekend will be vital for of these sides if they hope to reach the top two spots up for grabs for the league semi-finals. Wexford will consider themselves favourites in a repeats of last years All-Ireland Quarter-final while Dublin will be on the hunt for revenge.
Yet to get a win under their belt, Tipperary and Dublin will be focused to change that this weekend. Dublin travel to Wexford while Tipperary travel to Clare in a battle of the blue and yellow.
In group two, Kilkenny are in pole position for a semi-final spot. The ‘Cat’s’ have defeated both Waterford and Derry with ease but face a daunting task against Cork this weekend. Cork will also be targeting a win in Kilkenny as this will put the ‘Rebel’s’ level with Kilkenny on six points a piece.
Following their surprise victory over the All-Ireland Champions, Limerick return to play this weekend to take on newcomers Waterford. The ‘Deise’ racked up a high score against Kilkenny and they will be fancying their chances against Limerick.
Derry will enjoy a bye round, no doubt they will be working hard to take on Limerick in a bid for those much needed points.
