PRO Joe Bracken ALL-IRELAND SENIOR HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP Four remain in the hunt for the Liam MacCarthy Cup with Tipperary safely among the quartet following a 2-25 to 1-18 win over Laois in last Sunday’s All Ireland SHC Quarter Final.

A run out in Croke Park at this time of the year is always a welcome addition and Sunday’s visit will have afforded the team the opportunity to familiarise themselves once again... [Read the full story]

Midway Look at the 2019 Super League

May 9, 2019 · Leave a Comment 

We have reached the midway point of the 2019 Super League season and it is St Helens who lead the way in the table with 26 points.

Saints won the League Leaders’ Shield last year but failed to progress through to the Grand Final after losing 13-8 to Warrington Wolves. The team in 2019 look more clinical as they have proved recently with some big scorelines in their favour. The pick of the players in the St Helens dressing room has been Regan Grace, who is getting... [Read the full story]
