It's Singles SF's taking the attention of Hardball enthusiasts this weekend as the Senior, Minor, Intermediate & Junior SF's are all down for decision this Saturday & Sunday.
In the Seniors, last years champion CJ Fitzpatrick (Limerick) will start as favourite against Carl Browne (Dublin) in the top SF in Lahorna. Fitzpatrick who won his maiden crown last year saw off a gutsy three game challenge by Cork's Daniel Relihan last time round, whilst Browne impressed with a dominant win over Mayo's Vinny Moran. At the same venue, former champion Eoin Kennedy (Dublin) takes on Dominic Lynch (Kerry), with the St Brigid's clubman Kennedy taking the favourites tag.
In the Minors, Mayo's Patrick Murphy received a bye so will await the winner of David Walsh (Cork) v Eoin Brennan (Kilkenny). See full list of weekend fixtures below.
