DCU to enjoy Garden trip

O'BYRNE CUP, GROUP B

WICKLOW v DCU (Greystones, Tomorrow, 2.0)

IT'S a sign of their current immense strength that DCU are not only favourites for the Sigerson Cup but also third favourites to defend their O'Byrne Cup title at 11/2 too.

It really just depends what sort of team Niall Moyna fields, as he tends to rotate on this competition and given its altered and more busy structure this year, the scope for their manager to test out the full depths of his panel is readily available.

It is unlikely, however, that Michael Murphy will appear anytime soon, as he is currently holidaying with the rest of the All-Ireland winning Donegal panel in the middle East but it is entirely likely that there will be more established inter-county players in action for the DCU team in Greystones tomorrow (and especially in Parnell Park on Wednesday night in Parnell Park against Jim Gavin's Dublin) than there will be in most county selections tomorrow afternoon.

ODDS: Wicklow 2/1, Draw 15/2, DCU 4/9

VERDICT: DCU
