They topped the standings in Division 1A. The only loss coming to Cork, but they were already assured of a quarter final spot going into that game. Since then they have beaten Laois in the quarter finals and also accounted for Dublin last weekend in the semi-final at Nowlan Park. They weren’t at their usual fluid style but that was the way the game planned out and they still got over the line against a very well drilled Dublin side. Waterford have been hitting form as well. They finished second behind Dublin in 1B.
