2015 Division 2 Hurling League
« on: March 04, 2015, 10:27:58 AM »
Serious amount of work has gone into this so don't let me down with your replies.
Division 2 looks like it'll be entertaining this year - maybe better than division 1.
I'm not going to give you winners and losers. I'm going to give you my prediction for points n all.
Here goes (sigh)

1. Ballygalget                   - 35 points
2. Cloughmills                  - 26 points
3. Sarsfields                    - 26 points
4. Carey                          - 25 points
5. Creggan                      - 22 points
6. Armoy                       - 13 points
7. Gort na M                   - 11 points
8. Glenariffe                  - 10 points
9. Cushendun                - 9 points
10. St Pauls                      - 5 points

f**k i have too much free time!!
Would Paddy Power give you a price on this one??

Division 2 has been more "entertaining" than Division 1 for a while now!

What is lacks in standard - is much closer and more competitve across the division anyway.

I agree Ballygalget to win with a bit to spare, and hopefully Sarsfields above Cloughmills.
But this will all come down to consistency and player availability which might favour the Biddies.

St Pauls to finish above Cushendun - and Glenarrife will get enough home points to be better off than your table I think.

Could be a problem for us in particular around the Christy Ring period.

But I'm sure the new county management will show their flexibility as usual!   8)

i thought that creggan would have pushed on alot more since winning the all ireland Junior final. I know they came up short last year v carey but def thought they would have pushed on a bit more.

ASI i think what you have there is probably how it will pan out this year. well done, serious work put into that

Three teams relegated this year too will leave it extra competitive with nobody wanting to get dragged into a relegation battle every game counts

Three teams dropping out of Div2 as well?

Creggan are a very decent team, I expect them to push on from last year....
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Ballygalget at a canter. Then I fancy sarsfields to go straight back up. I can see gnm and Armoy struggling this year. Is dallas back to Ballycastle?  Cloughmills poached a few dunloy men too from the sounds of things, can only make them stronger

They are relegating 5 from division two to make it an eight team league. 3 down from div 1 and only one going up, plus one up from div 3, leaves 13 in div 2 before relegation. Hence 5 down to make 8 in division 2 in 2016.

The endless tinkering really is funny at this stage - we must have got through so many systems we've got back to the start a few times!

Yeah and it's always the div2/3/4 teams that get shafted every time. A team works hard to get promoted and then the next year half the div is relegated.

Fully agree - anyone would think the entire league system is changed at will by a few top clubs? Ssssssssh............

Is this fact or fiction?

Hard to believe they would relegate half of one division! That would a new very radical move, even for Antrim!!

If I remember correctly, the motion put forward at county convention by CCC was: at the end of 2015 season all of the Antrim Hurling leagues would revert to 8 team leagues. It was voted for by the clubs and approved at convention in December. We discussed it on here at the time
