Tipperary and Wexford remain the only unbeaten sides in the National Hurling League and while the latter will feel like they can take an enormous step toward promotion this weekend, the former face arguably one of their toughest challenges of the year.

Michael Ryan's side host Kilkenny at Semple Stadium and the pair face off for the first time since last September's All-Ireland final.

Speaking to this week, former Kilkenny hurler Nickey Brennan spoke of the need to be realistic as Kilkenny continue to bring young players into the squad.

"People are realistic enough to know that it does take time," he explained. "The younger lads have a decent pedigree at underage, but it’s a huge step up to come up against the top teams.

"I don’t think there's a question of panic. There has to be an element of realism."

Elsewhere this weekend, Dublin travel to Cusack Park to face Clare, while Waterford host Cork.

In Division 1B, Wexford can maintain their unbeaten league run when they go to Offaly on Sunday and Laois host Limerick.

Also this weekend, Tyrone and Cavan will face off in their rescheduled Allianz Football League Division 1 game clash at Healy Park.
