Okay, we’re in proper countdown mode ahead of Saturday’s Connacht semi-final meeting with Galway at MacHale Park (throw-in 7pm) so it’s as well to start clearing the decks to get ready for this one. Time, then, for a quick update (the second in the series) on how things are shaping up in this year’s championship prediction mini-league.
The leaderboard after Week 5, i.e. the weekend just gone, is set out in the table below. It’s still very tight at the top, with just over twenty points separating first from tenth, and with every match – bar Tipp/Cork yesterday – going along expected lines it’s those who can get closest to the exact margin of victory that are doing best. I’m sticking in there in seventh – how about yourself?
