Galway Hurlers Fancied For Titles In 2022 Following Shefflin Appointment

Henry Shefflin has been appointed as the new manager of the senior Galway hurling team and punters are feeling optimistic of their chances for 2022.

The Kilkenny legend was confirmed as the new Galway boss on Wednesday night replacing Shane O’Neill who stepped away in September.

Shefflin is a novice manager at inter-county level, but his two years in charge of his club, Ballyhale, ended with two All-Ireland club titles and BoyleSports have already received plenty of requests following his appointment.

It’s 5/2 from 4/1 that Galway will reach the 2022 All-Ireland SHC final and 10/1 from 14/1 that they will win both the Leinster and All-Ireland titles next year.

The retirement of Joe Canning is certain to be one of the first issues Shefflin is asked about. Canning stepped away in July but is 3/1 from 8/1 to come out of retirement.

It’s a 20/1 chance for Galway and Kilkenny to meet in the All-Ireland final next year and 7/4 for Shefflin to manage Kilkenny next after Brian Cody.

Bet on All-Ireland 2022.
