As a snapshot in time, the overall picture presented by the current Allianz Football League tables is a concerning one for Leinster football.
Rooted to the foot of Division One are, surprisingly, Dublin with Kildare just above them in the second relegation place. On Sunday, those two teams will collide in Newbridge and, for the loser, their ticket to Division Two may very well have just been stamped with only three games remaining.
The situation is similar in Division Two where the only two Leinster teams, Offaly and Meath, also occupy the relegation positions and are set to meet this weekend too, on Saturday in Tullamore.
