GAA: Cork And Kerry Set For Munster Decider

Munster Senior Football Championship

Cork V Kerry

The famous and greatest rivalry in the GAA renews again this weekend as Cork and Kerry battling it out for the Munster Championship. This will be one of the best games of the year with a close contest between the sides always expected. Kerry have been plagued with injuries this season, especially with the absence of Colm Cooper who has been an influential figure for Kerry in recent years.

Both sides faced tough matches from Tipperary and Clare in the opening round but have progressed to the final once more. Cork havn’t been beaten by Kerry on their home patch since 2010, which was actually the year they won the All-Ireland. Kerry on the other hand have been focusing on rebuilding a team in the last couple of years and remain a formidable team in the Championship.

Cork have already blown away the Kingdom in this year’s league with an impressive display of attacking football. Cork with home advantage may be too much of a tall order for this Kerry team at the moment, but both sides need this tough assignment as this will help them in focusing for the All-Ireland Quarter Finals later in the year, once both sides get there. It will be very hard game to decide who will win between these two high quality sides.

Verdict: Draw

Ulster Senior Football Championship

Monaghan v Armagh

This replay of last weekend’s game will be interesting as Monaghan will have to focus on getting more scores from play and will count themselves lucky that Rory Beggan’s frees went over the bar. Armagh on the other hand were a lot more enterprising in attack and they should have won this game with the opportunities they had.

Monaghan will not let themselves play as poorly again and coupled with the excellent free taking of Beggan they stand a strong chance of pulling through without any major difficulty. Monaghan need to be less dependent on their goalkeeper for scores but it will certainly be something for them to address. Armagh need to play a lot better and convert as many chances as they possible can and maybe that might be enough for them, it is really hard to know what will actually happen, but one thing is for certain, Monaghan will be tough beat.

Verdict: Monaghan
