Playing CR games on either Saturdays or Sundays should have no impact on club games IMO. We need to put the 99% of our playing population ahead of the elite few. Club league games must go ahead regardless of county team action.

I noticed young Dillon played for Armoy on Sunday at midfield after playing for county last Saturday. Fair play to him. Lets just get on with it and if the county lads don't want to play two days in the row that's also alright and their clubs have to respect that.

What happens if the young lad doesn't want to play two games in a row and decides to pull out of the county squad, would the county management respect that?

Probably not but county team/manager need to waken up and realise that they cant hold the club game to ransom all the time.

Totally agree - but the reality is they can and do.
Hopefully we buck the trend this year.

Did they start on Saturday though? and it was a pretty one sided game one Sunday to if it the one I'm thinking of.

Not sure but they have been county regulars and training with the county team, but both played and played very well

Sent to clubs today...

The County Hurling management team would like to request that our County players do not play on Sunday 23rd in the All County League fixtures. All players can resume playing for their club the following Sunday 30th April. We feel that the two games on Saturday 22nd and 29th April are of the utmost importance to the progression of the County team in our All Ireland championship campaign. We feel that preparation for these two games needs to be fully in our hands. As we hopefully progress we can then assess the needs of the clubs and the County.

Hope this meets with your approval

MR2

One lad started, he came on as a sub on the game you ref'd and the other didn't get a game for county, he started the club game.

Both just keen to get back to play for their clubs.

You had a good game btw on Sunday, let the game flow.

And with that all the promise of a new start grinds to a depressingly familiar halt.

Don't think it.
