We guess twelve. Clara had a good win over Raheen in the previous round and veterans like Kieran O"Meara and Willie Reynolds are very solid players at this level, but Brigid"s were very unlucky to be relegated last year and they appear to have upped their standard again in an attempt to return to senior at the first attempt. Of the twelve games previewed in this paper, the only way there could be any surprise in this game would be if it turned out not to have the biggest winning margin of the whole weekend - that would be shock enough. As for the margin? They may or may not manage that much, but they will beat Clara this Sunday.

Offaly"s two midfielders, Ciaran McManus and Niall Smith, will do battle at midfield and both players are likely to play a big role, but Gracefield"s half-back and half-forward lines should win the battle for breaking ball and their greater scoring ability should be too much for Tubber to handle, as a club who find scoring more than twelve times extremely difficult. Gracefield should welcome back the two Fitzpatricks and that added firepower could give them the edge in what could be a very hard fought and entertaining game.

If ten people were asked to rank the clubs in the IFC, at least seven out of ten would put Doon third while a similar proportion would probably put Birr fourth, based on results in 2008. The problem for Birr is that the gap between third and fourth is similar to the gap between Kilkenny and the second best team in hurling - it might be only one ranking place, but it"s a lot more than that in reality.

Both these sides have been surprise packets in 2008 and neither team will want to lose momentum by doing anything other than competing at 100 per cent intensity. Conspiracy theorists will be watching this game keenly to see if the two sides engineer the mutually satisfactory draw that will send both clubs into the knockout stages, but realistically this will only be an issue if the scores are level with a few minutes to go.

Clara come into this on the back of a facile win over St Rynagh"s while Ballycumber had to work a lot harder to secure their win over Erin Rovers. This may suggest that Ballycumber will start better while Clara spend some time becoming accustomed to the pace of the game, but the Magpies should have too much class here and if Reynolds, Deehan and O"Hara get going, they have too much firepower for Ballycumber to handle.
