This group is delicately poised. Kildare are already through but the meeting of Laois and Roscommon will decide who joins them, and whether Kildare finish top of the group or second.
A Laois victory over Roscommon would see them progress as group winners, along with Kildare, to the last eight of the All-Ireland series – and the eventual table-toppers will play Offaly or Louth in the quarter-finals.
A Roscommon win might not be enough to see them through with Laois boasting a +2 scoring difference, compared to -4 for the Rossies.
A Roscommon win would the Connacht outfit, Laois and Kildare all finish level on three points – and it will be either Laois or Roscommon who progress on scoring difference.
Roscommon: H Cummins, R Brady, S Kenny (c), M Kelly, J Cregg, S McVeigh, R Wynne, E Irwin, C Conway, N McHugh, L Fleming, M McHugh, R Finan, A Gavin, J Higgins.
Laois: E Barry, A Healy, A Potts, A Kelly, R Williams, E Healy, L Nerney (c), F Dooley, J Moore, J Dunne, A Havill, E Fitzpatrick, M Nerney, S.A. Fitzgerald, O Hennessy.
