Dublin, Wexford face play-off tie

Dublin, Wexford face play-off tie.  Lots may be drawn to decide who plays Tipperary in NHL Quarter Final.


Monday March 24 2008

GALWAY and Kilkenny are through to the Allianz Hurling League Division 1 semi-finals. Antrim, Laois and Offaly are relegated.

Tipperary, Limerick, Cork and Waterford have booked quarter-finals places, while Dublin and Wexford will almost certainly face a play-off to decide who drops down to Division 2.

The Central Competitions Control Committee will meet tomorrow to decide what happens next following complications over scoring difference in Division 1A which impact on the quarter-final pairings and the Dublin-Wexford relegation issue.

Scoring difference cannot be used to decide placings because of Cork’s no-show for their first two games. That means a play-off is likely to be required to decide who drops into Division 2.

Dublin have a better scoring difference but that won’t apply, although Dublin are likely to argue it should, since both they and Wexford completed their full quota of five games.

With Cork and Waterford both qualified for the quarter-finals on six points, lots may be drawn to decide who meets Limerick and Tipperary in the quarter-finals on Sunday week.
