Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Shinrone certainly laid down a ferocious statement yesterday, not only beating St. Rynaghs, but the manner of the comeback (10 points down for a good period of the game)..levelled it, Rynaghs pushed ahead, and Shinrone still go on and win it..them and Birr should be a great QF...Birr are going prett...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

looking at it neutrally, I would dont like two "new" teams getting to a final as obviously one will end up loosing and often that can set the loosing team back so much, not saying Belmont or Shinrone would necessarily regress if they lost a county final..going on last year Belmont would a welcome fi...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

depending on ones views, the irony of the whole system this year is that teams who lost alot of games might still progress to knockout stages, great for them, is it good in longterm, will any of these teams, with the exception of last years champions Coolderry who we have to assume wont give up thei...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

interesting to see some predicting Shinrone to beat Rynaghs, Shinrone are going very well and scoring well, but Rynaghs have a tight defence and that can be seen on the scoring difference...unless Rynaghs just go through the motions of that game, but I think they do need to win to secure semifinal r...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

I agree..I actually think if Birr gather a bit of momentum/form they will make a semi final and its game on if they get there..

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

going on overall form this season, Belmont had a rocky patch admittedly but overall had some good wins and were hurling well..Birr were not going well in any of the games I seen them in, and drawing with Kilcormac last day was Birrs only good performance all year, can they back it up with a second w...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

the likely QF of Belmont V Coolderry will be a test of where Belmont are at "knockout wise"...IF they win that then they will be considered genuine contenders outside Kilcormac and Rynaghs. They are contenders of course at the moment, BUT(like Shinrone) they need to deliver at knockout stage and Q/F...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

Ime surprised with this appointment, but will go along with the general feeling here that it is a good appointment, as posters will know themselves, there is a bit of nastiness ceeping into some club games in Offaly and when a county goes down that road its always a sign of things not going well. Ho...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

havent been on in a while with one thing and another...strange to say Birr drawing with KK seen in some quarters as a shock given their history, but it does open up the pot again somehwhat...a bit of a bore with most teams now more or less guaranteed at least quarter final spots, with the only inter...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

Forde delivered (eventually) for Rynaghs, then moved back down to Galway..a great reader of the game, I dont know if he would have all the credentials to be manager though, he seems to be always in the background with Galway...maybe he will, but I think Galway CB will be looking for a higher profile...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

both Belmont and Kilcormac SHOULD have struggled to get results against Coolderry and Kinnity at the weekend, the games were close, how close would them too games have been if the referee had dished out straight red cards to at least 9/10 players between the 2 clubs after the disgraceful brawl in th...
