Hurlers travel to Tyrone buoyed by opening day win

NHL Division 2B:
Roscommon v Tyrone on Sunday in Carrickmore at 2 pm

Roscommon hurlers, fresh from their excellent opening win against London in Athleague last weekend, will travel to Tyrone this Sunday hoping for another brace of league points.

New Roscommon manager Kevin Sammon is looking forward to this weekend’s challenge after last Sunday’s good display.

“We were very happy with how we played last Sunday. It was a very good win against a strong London team. I was delighted with the positive attitude of the Roscommon players and hopefully we can carry that into Sunday’s game” he said.

The Roscommon manager is expecting a tough battle with Tyrone.

“They will be a strong, physical side and at home they will be hoping to win. But we know that if we can get two more points we will be very close to keeping our status in this division, which is our big aim.

“We have no injuries and should have a full squad to pick from on Sunday which is very positive” he concluded.

Tyrone have been excellent in the past few years, but Roscommon have momentum after an excellent win against London and are well capable of winning.

Prediction: Roscommon.
