Super8s Podcast Crew give their weekend championship predictions

There are lots of championship games in hurling and football this weekend and once again the Supe8s Podcast crew of Doron Harte, Sean Og O’hAilpin and Shane Curran give their predictions on how they think the big games will go.

We’ll start with hurling and Doron Harte believes Clare will beat Cork in their Munster Hurling clash at Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Sunday afternoon while Sean Og is tipping his native county to overcome the Banner and Shane Curran is following suit.

All three of the lads have tipped Tipp to defeat Limerick in their clash at the Gaelic Grounds, also on Sunday.

Doron believes Davy Fitzgerald’s Wexford will overcome Dublin while Sean Og and Shane are backing Pat Gilroy’s Dublin to claim the win in Wexford on Sunday. Also on Sunday in the Leinster Hurling Championship Sean Og and Shane have backed Kilkenny to beat Offaly at home in Nowlan Park.

In the football and starting with the big clash in Omagh on Sunday afternoon between two favourites for the Ulster title; Tyrone and Monaghan. Sean Og feels that Monaghan can dethrone the Ulster Champions while Doron and Shane think Mickey Harte’s Tyrone will have enough to defeat Monaghan.

All three of the lads have tipped Armagh to come away from Brewster Park with a win over Fermanagh in their Ulster Championship tie on Saturday evening.

In the Munster Football Championship ties that are to be played on Saturday evening the three lads have backed Clare to beat Limerick in their clash at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick and Tipperary book their semi-final spot with a win over Waterford at Semple Stadium.
