The most important match in Waterford GAA this weekend is in Tullamore against Offaly. Okay, not really, but it’s been a while since the footballers could claim to be in a genuinely interesting tie. Three wins on the bounce have doubtless left them contemplating something more meaty like promotion. But one glance at the current league table shows how the bottom three are the whippingest of whipping boys that were ever to be whipped. Progress has been made, but we’ll be better able to measure that progress this weekend.
