Tullamore too have been quite competitive at this level and their narrow win over Kilclonfert back in May gives them the whip hand, though their most recent performance was very discouraging. Ballyfore come into this game on the back of two defeats, but any kind of win here combined with a heavy defeat for Kilclonfert against Walsh Island would see the Edenderry parish club advance to the knockout stages. Ballyfore are still struggling to deal with the loss of Conor Evans, but if they can retain their belief and their focus, they have enough ability to sneak a tight game here.

A team could win two or three games of a four-game round-robin phase and be left in a relegation match while another team could get beaten four times on the trot and take a quarter-final place. This is not about predicting any results and by all means, the games left will be competitive but the fact that this is a possibility makes a mockery of the championship.

Offaly"s two midfielders, Ciaran McManus and Niall Smith, will do battle at midfield and both players are likely to play a big role, but Gracefield"s half-back and half-forward lines should win the battle for breaking ball and their greater scoring ability should be too much for Tubber to handle, as a club who find scoring more than twelve times extremely difficult. Gracefield should welcome back the two Fitzpatricks and that added firepower could give them the edge in what could be a very hard fought and entertaining game.

On form so far this year the gap between the two clubs appears to have narrowed significantly, but logic still dictates that Shamrocks should have little difficulty in Geashill. Both these teams contested county finals in 2007, one at intermediate and one at senior. Shamrocks need a big margin win here as well as a decisive result in Tullamore in order to advance to the quarter-finals and the suspicion is that they"ll hold up their end of the deal. Edenderry have turned the corner after a grim spell this decade and are an up and coming team, but it would be understandable if a sense of dj-vu was settling into the club as they once again get drawn into a relegation battle. Shamrocks to win by at least six points is the most likely outcome.

Clara come into this on the back of a facile win over St Rynagh"s while Ballycumber had to work a lot harder to secure their win over Erin Rovers. This may suggest that Ballycumber will start better while Clara spend some time becoming accustomed to the pace of the game, but the Magpies should have too much class here and if Reynolds, Deehan and O"Hara get going, they have too much firepower for Ballycumber to handle.
