Poll: Who do you think will win the 2017 All-Ireland senior hurling championship?

A fascinating race for the Liam MacCarthy Cup lies in store, with Tipperary the defending champions.

TIPPERARY BEGIN THE 2017 campaign as reigning All-Ireland senior hurling champions.

But did Galway’s comprehensive Allianz Hurling League final victory expose some chinks in the Premier County’s armour?

All will be revealed over the coming months and the race to climb the Hogan Stand steps in September should make for fascinating viewing.

Can Micheál Donoghue’s Galway finally end the county’s All-Ireland SHC famine that dates back to 1988, or will Brian Cody mastermind yet another success for Kilkenny?

What about Waterford? So close in last year’s semi-final replay against Kilkenny and knocking at the door with a host of talented young players.

The ‘big four’ were last year’s All-Ireland semi-finalists but could a bolter emerge from the pack?
