Kilkenny has one remaining chance of winning a Leinster club hurling title this season.
In recent weeks, Dicksboro (senior) and John Lockes of Callan (junior) crashed out of Leinster without success, so the last remaining hope are St Patrick's (Ballyragget) in the intermediate division.
The North Kilkenny outfit are in action in the semi-final on Saturday (2pm) in Pairc Tailteann against Kiltale (Meath).
Fixtures - AIB Leinster club intermediate hurling semi-finals on Saturday, Pairc Tailteann (2pm) Kiltale (Meath) v St Patrick's, Ballyraggett; Joule Park, Aughrim (2pm) Glenealy v Crossabeg Ballymurn/St Anne's.
