‘I don’t think things go well with Limerick… a bunch of chasers are starting to hone them’ – John Mullane

You’ve got long odds on Limerick’s last game in the Allianz League in 2022 being a penalty shootout against Offaly to avoid the Division One relegation playoffs at the start of the season but that’s where we found ourselves. after Round 4.

the draw with Clare may have stopped some of the rot following defeats against Wexford, Galway and Cork and with Offaly proving the best boys in Group A, it’s hard to imagine that first win for John Kiely’s men won’t come at all on Sunday.

But while league form can never be taken as an accurate measure as we head into the summer, John Mullane believes their slow start to tough early games will provide a scene. notify the Treaty before this year turns faster than usual into a roadblock in the Championship.

“A few weeks ago we asked if Kiely pressed the panic button? After yesterday, although he was happy with his team’s attitude, I can say that now he’s starting to worry a little bit,” Mullane told The Throw-In, Independent.ie’s GAA podcast. .

“I said it last week, that the Cork game, the first game, it was a big, big game for them. If they lose that game. they go to Waterford next week.

“And I was at the game against Clare Limerick on Sunday. Any team that attends Ennis this year, they’re going to do great and have to earn it to get anything.

“I don’t think the fitment goes well with Limerick.

“He said to himself it was a challenge and it was a challenge they were looking forward to, to try and fix the mistakes they were making at the moment.

“But I think the chasers are starting to focus on them.”

The return to the scoring circle for the Munster Championship means all teams will have at least four games this April and May, after two years of Covid restrictions that have seen the format return. knockout, albeit with rear door safety nets.

However, a similar start to their league campaign will see Limerick’s three-match ambitions come to an end before the action moves into the All-Ireland series.

However, if they come out of the province as expected, Mullane believes we will see a more familiar team in the green.

“Now I think if Limerick goes back to Croke Park, they will be very dangerous, they will be very hard to beat. I think they are a Croke Park team,” he finished.

“It would be in their favor to go down to Cork in that first game and those dimensions play exactly like Croke Park would do.

“But if they lose that first game, I don’t think it’s a foregone conclusion (they will recover to qualify).

“Looking at people will just say ‘oh look, whatever happens they’re going to be in the top three in Munster’.

“But I think after yesterday, Kiely might be a little nervous.”
