    Galway's surge, Tipp's question marks and Waterford a different animal

    Galway's surge, Tipp's question marks and Waterford a different animal

    There was just hurling action in the Allianz Leagues over the weekend and on this week’s Throw-In, Vincent Hogan, Donnchadh Boyle and John Mullane joined Will Slattery to look back on all the games.

    Galway’s resurgence under Shane O’Neill and their 3-12 scored in the second half to seal victory over Tipperary caught the eye the most and John Mullane reckons their potent forward line could be one to watch in the summer.

    Waterford have also been rejuvenated under a new manager and Liam Cahill’s philosophy and ethos were highlighted by Vincent Hogan and the panel when discussing the Deise’s new energy and attitude.

    May 10th sees Tipperary visit Waterford in their Munster Championship fixture and Liam Sheedy knows Tipp have an awful lot of work to do between now and then to come away with a win.

    The rise of tunnel brawls, Mayo’s battles ahead and hurling’s black card shot down

    Tyrone v Dublin being played in horrendous conditions with plenty of history between these teams, what could possibly go wrong?

    This week on the Throw-In, Ciaran Whelan joins Will Slattery, Michael Verney and Colm Keys to discuss the fall-out from the game.

    Plus the panel discuss Mayo’s failings and difficulties ahead for James Horan as they seek to re-build for the future.

    In hurling, John Mullane joins Will, Michael and Colm to discuss how the League format has taken the sting out of so many games and highlights the fact that managers are looking to bed down squad players at this time of year.

    Finally with the GAA Congress voting in its first ever overseas President as well as a host of rule changes, including the ditching of the black card in hurling, the Throw-In panel give their verdict on the effect of Congress’ decisions.

    Jim Gavin's cap, Brolly as the waterboy and leave hurling alone

    Jim Gavin's cap, Brolly as the waterboy and leave hurling alone

    Does Dublin have a weakness, the Padraig Joyce effect, cynicism in football, the state of hurling referees, Brian Lohan's direct route and the positive effect of the new camogie rules are all up for discussion on this week's Throw-In.

    Tomás Ó'Se, Brendan Cummins and Ursula Jacob join Michael Verney, John Brennan and Roy Curtis with all the latest opinion and analysis from the weekend GAA action.

    While Joe Brolly says Jim Gavin's baseball cap could manage this team, Brolly could be the waterboy reckons Ó'Sé and he believes it is scary for the other teams in the country looking to beat the Dubs.

    In hurling, Brendan Cummins applauds Clare's more direct approach but says the old failings of possession without being dominant still needs to be addressed.  

    And leave the game alone the panel all agree on.  The resurgence of Waterford, the strength of Wexford, and Clare's rising under Lohan, along with the traditional heavyweights, shows there's not much wrong with hurling.

    How Wexford are transforming hurling, weather woe and the wild world of Division Two

    How Wexford are transforming hurling, weather woe and the wild world of Division Two

    On this week's episode of The Throw-In, Will Slattery and Michael Verney are joined by John Mullane and Frank Roche to review the latest weekend of Allianz League action.

    What was meant to be a hurling-only weekend also ended up featuring three football matches as inclement weather continues to cause havoc with the schedule. Limerick vs Waterford and Galway vs Tipperary were both called off last weekend, which will cause a delay in the hurling league later in the campaign.

    On the pitch, Wexford pipped Kilkenny in another dramatic clash between the sides, and Mullane thinks that Davy Fitzgerald's men now have a psychological edge in the rivalry.

    Mullane also thinks that Wexford's attacking defenders are transforming the sport, and thinks the Yellow Bellies are still firmly All-Ireland contenders.

    In football, the lads assess the state of play in the lower divisions, with the promotion and relegation battles extremely difficult to call in Division Two, Three and Four.
