Dublin Camogie Senior Team Faced With Must Win Game Against Limerick To Avoid Relegation Play-Off

The Dublin Camogie keeper picking out the ball against Galway, the Dublin Camogie Senior Team are unchanged for their must win game against Limerick

Littlewoods Ireland National Camogie League Division 1, Group 2

Limerick v Dublin

Sunday 8th of March

Venue: LIT

Throw-In: 1pm

Referee: Owen Elliott

The Dublin Camogie senior team are unchanged from the side that started against Tipperary for their must win game against Limerick in Sunday.

Both Dublin and Limerick languish at the bottom of their group and the losers of their Littlewoods Ireland National Camogie League Division 1 encounter faces the prospect of a relegation play-off.

Both teams have lost their first two league outings, Dublin were beaten by Galway in round one by 0-10 to 0-07 and Followed that up with a six point loss to Tipperary by 0-14 to 0-08.

Limerick followed a narrow 0-10 to 1-06 defeat to Tipperary in their opening league game with a heavy 4-13 to 0-07 loss to Galway.

Although Dublin have shown plenty of work-rate and aggression in the tackle in their two defeats, their old achilles heel of low scoring returns continues with the team failing to reach double scores in either of their games.

They scored just seven points against Galway and just eight points against Tipperary, that type of return will not win games and it’s incumbent of the joint managers Willie Braine and John Treacy to address this area of their team.

Limerick are in a similar situation in terms of scoring, they managed just 1-06 against Tipp and 0-07 against Galway that’s an average of one score every nine and a half minutes or so.

The result of Sunday’s game will come down to the team that has addressed their low scoring returns to date and transfers possession into scores.
