Re: Standard of Senior club hurling in Offaly

watched the Tipperary final today on TG4 and seen other rounds as well...anyone that says the standard of club hurling in Offaly is as good as these counites is kidding themselves..OK kIladangan may not go on and win an All Ireland, simply because they will have to face a Na Piarsaigh or a Ballygunn...

Re: Standard of Senior club hurling in Offaly

just looking at all the debate on how to hurl this way and that way...Brian Cody no less, said once preparing for an all Ireland, you can prepare all you want, when the ball is thrown in its 15 against 15 after that, try and win most of the man to man battles and you wont be far away (from winning)....

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

settle down, such is my disbelief, that something like that happened and NOT ONE official seen it..it did happen I have found out and I know why it happened (doesnt justify it but I know why it happened now)

Its a mess for Coolderry, wont be another word about it probably..

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

Surely to God the referee or some official would have seen such an altercation????...if they did and done nothing, not sure who the referee was in this game, butwe its ok to say "Brian Gavin let alot of things go in matches (particularly Kilkenny games) but that isnt alway right, and surely if this ...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

Anyways, onto the semifinals in 2 weeks: Belmont V Kilcormac...I think Belmont will give this a real go, and in ways will be happier to have avoided Rynaghs and maybe even Birr (who seem to be on song at the moment) Kilcormac are a bit like Rynaghs, playing well enough to win their matches but leavi...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

If he was struck by his own or any player, like Harry Ryan with Liam Fennelly as outlined above, the referee should have sent off the player that struck him, did his own player push or jostle him now or actually "hit" him...if he was hit, I would find it strange a refereee would not see it/find out ...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

I heard that, apparently Brian Carroll clashed with a team mate, and afterwards walked off the pitch, gathered his belongings on sideline and walked off the pitch completely...now I will say one thing, if that happened, it does not show much respect for his management. If he had a grievance, go to t...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

Shinrone have not reached last years standard at all, i know its different championship and all that...hard to see them beat Rynaghs who will surely not go out to lose either, hard to see where the performance is in Shinrone, is there a kick left in them, if they do Ballinamere I think will ask ques...

Re: Standard of Senior club hurling in Offaly

great to see the post taking off so well, one thing amazes me when I read abou the game "evolving" etc. its a simple game in ways, and the pitch is standard size with 30 players on the pitch, there are only so many different variations can be "evolved" over the years...I certainly dont want to see t...

Re: Standard of Senior club hurling in Offaly

100% correct, and our top county players, the few we have have enough skill not to need the basic skills, its the majority of the team who are not top class (nothing personal in that now either) that probably need these skills more than our top players..very hard to see us going back to basics at th...
