Rivals' rivalry plot thickens!

nfl div 4 final

LONGFORD v OFFALY

(Croke Park, Today 5.15, Live TG4)

THIS has more sub-plots than 'Pulp Fiction'. Longford sealed promotion by just about beating 12-man Offaly who, it's fair to say, weren't bowled over by the ref. And, on May 16, they'll meet again in Leinster.

The idea of not treating this final with respect would be "ludicrous," says Offaly boss Pat Flanagan. He admits they should have been more disciplined last month but adds: "Things went against us that didn't help ... Longford brought a few tactics that they got away with, and we didn't wise up to it quickly enough." The plot thickens.

ODDS: Longf'd 10/11 Draw 15/2 Offaly 6/5

VERDICT: Offaly
