Permutations | All four semi-final places yet to be determined after thrilling penultimate weekend of PIHC group stages

There are still places up for grabs in the semi-finals of the Limerick Premier Intermediate Championship ahead of the final round of games next month.

In what’s already been a roller-coaster group stages for the Premier IHC, there were a number of twists in the penultimate set of games, with a new leader atop the table.

As of now, only one place has been fully determined, with Knockainey already relegated with just one point after six games.

Incredibly, no team is assured of their semi-final berth, although a couple of teams have one foot in the knockout stages after an eventful weekend.

Six teams still have a chance of moving into the final four in the form of Monaleen, Effin, Bruff, Glenroe, Newcastle West and Dromin Athlacca while last year’s finalists Cappamore have been eliminated from the competition for 2022.

Ahaead of the final round, check out the permutations for each team below:

Monaleen – A win/draw against Effin qualifies the side for the knockout stages. If they lose and Bruff, Newcastle West and Glenroe all win, it will go to a score difference to determine the three sides that go through with Effin table toppers in that scenario.

Effin – A win seals their place in the knockout rounds. If they draw with Monaleen & Bruff, Newcastle West and Glenroe win the places will be determined by score difference. If any of the aforementioned slides lose, then Effin are guaranteed to qualify. If Effin lose and those three sides win they will miss out. If Effin end up level with any of the aforementioned trio, they have the H2H record against Glenroe, but were beaten by both Bruff and Newcastle West.

Bruff – Level with two other sides in Newcastle West and Glenroe on seven points. A win will put the side on nine points and guarantee them a place if Effin lose to Monaleen or if the other two sides fail to win. If Bruff win, Monaleen and Effin play out a draw & Newcastle West and Glenroe win, four sides will be level on 9 points and it will go to score difference.

A loss and a win for the two other sides will prevent them from qualifying for the knockouts but if one of the other sides also lose, Bruff could qualify on scoring difference where they (+14) currently better Glenroe (+12) and NCW (+2). If it comes down to head to head, Bruff have it over Glenroe by virtue of their round six win and also against Effin but were beaten by Newcastle West.

Glenroe – In the same position as Bruff and currently occupy fourth spot ahead of NCW on scoring difference.

Level with two other sides. A win will put the side on 9 points and guarantee them a place if Effin lose to Monaleen or if the other two sides slip up. If Glenroe win, Monaleen and Effin draw & Bruff & NCW also win, four sides will be level on 9 points and it will go to score difference.

A loss and a win for the two other sides will prevent them from qualifying for the knockouts but if one of the sides also lose, Glenroe could qualify on scoring difference. Bruff have the H2H record against them while they played out a draw with NCW in the opening round.

Newcastle West – In the same position as Glenroe and Bruff but currently outside the top four on scoring difference.

Level with Bruff and Glenroe. A win will put the side on 9 points and guarantee them a place if Effin lose to Monaleen or if the other two sides slip up. If NCW win, Monaleen and Effin draw & if Bruff and Glenroe also win, four sides will be level on 9 points and it will go to score difference.

A loss and a win for the two other sides will prevent the side from qualifying for the knockouts but if one of the sides also lose, NCW could qualify on scoring difference. Hold a head to head record over Effin and Bruff while they drew against Glenroe.

Dromin Athlacca – Must win against Glenroe to have any chance. If they win & NCW and Bruff win, Dromin Athlacca will qualify on H2H against Glenroe. If NCW/Bruff lose and Dromin win then it will go to a point difference between four sides with Dromin Athlacca currently (-9).

A loss or draw will see them eliminated.

Cappamore – Unable to qualify for the knockouts but will not be relegated.

Knockainey – Relegated.
