London must pass Limerick test

London forward Cathal McGee believes Sunday’s Ruislip clash with Limerick will tell The Exiles just how far they’ve progressed this year

London’s clash with Division 4 leaders Limerick at Ruislip on Sunday will tell the Exiles exactly how much progress they’ve made this year, according to Cathal McGee.

The former Down and Mayobridge forward made his first start for the Exiles in their 1-10 to 0-13 victory over Waterford, contributing three well taken points, having made his London debut off the bench in the defeat to Carlow in round 2.

The Shannonsiders’ march to promotion may have been disrupted by Tipperary last Saturday at the Gaelic Grounds, but Maurice Horan’s side will undoubtedly present Paul Coggins’ London with their biggest test of the league campaign to date.

“For me, this is game that will show exactly where we are in the division. A lot of people would look at London as the weakest team in the division but I certainly don’t see it that way since I’ve come over. Limerick will show exactly where we are, and where we need to get to for the Sligo game,” said McGee.
