Preview: Offaly v Laois
Sunday February 25
Allianz Hurling League Division 1B
Offaly v Laois, Bord Na Mona O'Connor Park, 12.30pm
This game between the two neighbours should be interesting.
Offaly's opening day triumph over Dublin was a statement, but the defeats to Limerick and Galway a reminder of how cruel any lapses in concentration can be.
Ross King continues to excel for Laois, who hurled well against Antrim last Saturday. This tussle with Offaly should be revealing.
LAOIS: Enda Rowland; Donnacha Hartnett, Leigh Bergin, Lee Cleere; Podge Lawlor, Matthew Whelan, Eric Killeen; Paddy Purcell, James Ryan; Ben Conroy, Cha Dwyer, Willie Dunphy; Ross King, Neil Foyle, Ciaran Comerford.
