Meath hurlers must win against Donegal

Meath hurling manager Martin Ennis will be looking for an improved performance from his players when they tackle Donegal in the third round of the NHL Div 2B at Trim on Sunday.

Meath slumped to a disappointing defeat against Mayo two weeks ago and now have to plan without Tipperary Timmy Hammersley and Jack Regan.

Hammersley was named in the starting 15 against Mayo, but was replaced by Dunboyne’s Sean Quigley, apparently due to injury.

Hammersely scored three points for Meath in the first round NHL Div 2B victory away to Wicklow.

Last year Meath made the trip to play Donegal and recorded a convincing victory.

Down and Mayo have both won their opening two games so the winners of their clash will become outright leaders in the race for promotion. Down beat Mayo by 2-20 to 0-15 in last year’s League.

A win on Sunday for Meath will get the bid for the title bid back on track with away games against Armagh and Down on 13th and 20th March.
