The junior and intern are uneven playing fields; teams playing division 1 playing in both; hows that work against teams who play out of division 2 and 3! The rock is a genuine strong division 3 team! How come kerry teams in division 1 can play junior! Does not make sense!!
Well done Westport!The age profile of that Westport team is unreal. Lee Keegan the oldest player at 27, 5 lads playing today that will be sitting their leaving cert this summer if I heard the commentary correctly.Colm Moran looks an excellent prospect, Oisín McLoughlin too. Exciting forwards is something Mayo has been lacking (O'Connors apart) so hopefully those lads can keep progressing.
Only seen bits and pieces. The black card for O'Sullivan at the end shows how stupid the rule is. O'Sullivan did what most would do under current rules and pulled rock player down. The Rock player looked badly hurt and play was stopped for a considerable time. The rule as it stands encourages these dangerous tackles near the end of the game and helps the guilty team break up play. Would make more sense for a black card offence in defense to lead to a 45 and in attack a 21 yard free. If a goal opportunity then a penalty and a yellow or red card.
Don't mind this 'hit out' nonsense.The media are always at this craic.Such and such has 'blasted' someone or something, is another common one.His actual quote is harmless enough and knowing him he was probably smiling when he said it.
And so the year ends for club players. Congratulations to all the winners and all the participants.
