Meath manager Seoirse Bulfin is clearly intent on testing the strength in depth available to him having made wholesale changes for tomorrow’s Kehoe Cup encounter against Carlow.
The Royals go into the fixture unbeaten by virtue of victories over Wicklow and Down. The competition format this year decrees that whoever finishes top of the standings is declared the winner.
Bulfin’s side will be keen to begin their season with some silverware and are entitled to fancy their chances of doing so in view of the fact they have a game in hand over tomorrow’s opponents.
