Hurling – Dublin v Kilkenny – Starting News, Live Scores, Betting & TV Coverage

Leinster SHC Final – Dublin v Kilkenny – Croke Park – 7:30 pm – RTÉ


Dublin and Kilkenny will go face to face within the Leinster Hurling ultimate at Croke Park this coming Saturday at 7:30 pm within the first provincial hurling ultimate of the summer season.

The Dubs are coming into this recreation trying to win their first Leinster title since 2013 once they defeated Galway.

They can be stuffed with confidence and hope after their shock victory over the Tribesmen two weeks in the past, placing of their finest efficiency in a while to make it to their first Leinster ultimate since 2014.

The two sides met in Division 1 of the Allianz League, with Kilkenny topping the group, whereas Dublin languished in fifth, dropping 3 of their 5 video games.

When they did meet, it was a detailed affair, with Kilkenny simply edging it by a scoreline of 0-18 to 1-20

Kilkenny seems to be like a workforce rejuvenated after dropping to Waterford in final yr’s All-Ireland semi-final. The reigning Leinster champions will look to seize their 73rd provincial title and seventeenth underneath Brian Cody.

The Cats defeated a robust a poised Wexford aspect within the semi-final by a rating of 2-37 to 2-29.

Davy Fitzgerald’s aspect regarded like they might pull off a well-known victory at occasions, however Kilkenny’s class and expertise received them over the road when it mattered most.

This can be a repeat of final years Leinster semi-final, with Kilkenny and Dublin pulling off an all-time basic which noticed Brian Cody’s males simply come out with a 1 level victory, beating the Dubs 3-20 to 2-22.


On paper and from previous video games from years passed by, all arrows are pointing in Kilkenny to topple the Dubs.

Unlike their soccer workforce, Dublin hurling has been stagnated and void of path for a few years now. Usually seen because the darkish horses of the hurling championship, they by no means appear to really ship on the massive event.

Their opponents are the exact opposite, being essentially the most profitable hurling workforce in historical past with 36 senior All-Ireland titles and 72 Leinster titles is a tremendous feat, particularly with the excessive calibre of groups surrounding them.

Beating the favourites in Galway will give Dublin a case to problem for multiple honour this season.

A really troublesome recreation to dissect, but when I needed to choose a workforce, Kilkenny could be the plain selection primarily based on their previous experiences and having an edge over the workforce from the capital.
