GAA Super Bonus Acca: Tipperary and Fermanagh backed for wins
This week’s GAA Super Bonus Accumulator features two Gaelic Football selections in Tipperary and Fermanagh with Wexford and Tipperary also backed for victories in their respective Leinster and Munster Hurling Championship ties.
Here are our match previews:
It was quite a surprise to see established names such as John Galvin and Pa Ranahan named on the Limerick substitutes bench for the Munster SFC quarter-final against Tipperary but manager John Brudair has placed his faith in youth, naming five championship debutants in their starting line-up.
Limerick have won their last three championship clashes with Tipperary but the visitors have enjoying an excellent season and in star man Conor Sweeney they have the top scorer across all four divisions.
In what promises to be a tight affair, Tipperary’s excellent forward line of Sweeney, Barry Grogan and Michael Quinlivan could well be what makes the difference as both sides battle for the right to face Cork in the semi-finals.
Fermanagh have a great chance to book their place in the semi-finals against SFC favourites Donegal when they face an out-of-sorts Antrim.
The league season did not quite go according to plan for Liam Bradley’s side and although they are a better side than their league form suggests Antrim’s form in recent weeks has not improved.
Fermanagh will look to take full advantage of this and with home support a big plus they look a good bet for victory.
Wexford have been in impressive form in recent friendly wins over Tipperary and Clare and that should stand them in excellent stead against Antrim.
Liam Dunne’s side also have an excellent record against Antrim in Championship matches, having never lost a game against their opponents and will be looking to repeat last year’s 10 points win in the qualifiers.
There is no doubt Antrim are a better side this year but Wexford, who were the victors when the sides clashed in the league earlier this year, are the overwhelming favourites for victory.
In what is easily the pick of the games this weekend, Limerick travel to Semple Stadium to take on Tipperary in a repeat of last year’s semi-final.
Limerick were the victors on that occasion and went onto lift the Munster Championship but they have not quite hit the heights since and the home side will be desperate for revenge this time around.
John O’Dwyer and in particular Seamus Callanan have been outstanding in attack for Tipperary and the two in-form forwards will be key men as Eamon O’Shea’s side look to make it a tough afternoon for the visitors.
