Newmarket manager Tomas Ryan says his side will have a clear focus this week as they prepare for their showdown with Cratloe in the Clare senior hurling quarter finals.
The Blues secured the second qualification spot in Group One, with victories over Clonlara and Whitegate along with a draw against Feakle seeing them through.
2021 saw them lose out to eventual champions Ballyea by a single point in the semi-finals, with the last of their 23 titles coming 10 years ago.
Ryan says now that it is on to knockout hurling, everyone knows what is at stake
