DUBLIN V GALWAY
Galway lead the table on five points, one ahead of Kilkenny and Wexford and two ahead of Dublin. A draw or a win would book Galway a place in the Leinster final.
If Dublin win and Wexford and Kilkenny draw, all four teams will be on five points, in which case the placings would be based on scoring difference. In that event, Galway would be eliminated from the All-Ireland race as the other three have higher scoring differences.
