IT’S ALMOST TIME for the start of the Allianz Hurling League campaign.

In Division 1A, six teams set out in the hunt for quarter-final slots and to avoid potential relegation to Division 1B.

For the Division 1B winners from the last two seasons – Waterford in 2015 and Clare last year – the omens are good as both counties went on to win the competition outright.

But for the purposes of this poll, we want to know who you think will finish on top of the elite group.

Holders Clare are back in the top flight but will face stiff competition from All-Ireland finalists Kilkenny and Tipperary, along with Cork, Dublin and Waterford.

It all gets underway next Saturday evening at Croke Park when All-Ireland champions Tipperary visit Dublin, before Cork host Clare at Páirc Uí Rinn.

On Sunday, it’s a repeat of last year’s classic All-Ireland semi-final and replay when Kilkenny take on Waterford at Nowlan Park.

So, who will come out on top in Division 1A?
