This years panel is much the same as last year apart from 5 or 6 new faces which had very strong club championship campaigns which is good to see and some faces that posters on this site will be delighted to see because I have seen their names mentioned on other threads.

I Heard that there are a number of guys that were involved last year that are not going back this year.
The guys i heard that are called in are very young and i assume its was preseason panel with some of the senior guys joining up later .

The senior players are back in training and there are a lot of young players in there too. Some players are carrying injuries of course and they will be back later in the year.

I hope every efford is made to get both those guys back on board .i think the team should be built around them .E Murphy leading the defence from full back and C Mahon leading the attack from center forward, both are natural leaders.

E Murphy was at his peak in the '80s for Beverly Hills Cop when he was quick on his feet and delivered some decent shots. He was carrying a bit of extra conditioning for the Nutty Professor, but you could still have imagined him doing a decent job off the bench and hovering on the edge of the square.
I can't see how he could contribute at this stage of his career.

Almost sure he meant Eanna Murphy he of Clareen, could be wrong though.

Are you saying he's dropped himself already after only a few sessions or just hasn't gone in?? Jesus it's like a badge of honour for some lads to drop themselves off the panel. Sad.

Wow, that must be a record!! Gone before any selectors in place. Nothing in them Clareen lads unlike their predecessors of the 80s and 90s.
