I did say "Bit of a shock"

I think Cork look limited enough in terms of scoring players - their half-forward line is made up of a lad who looks a midfielder or nothing - Deane, and White who is also more suited to either midfield or centre-back and Flahive who looks a more natural wing-back. If the three lads in Cork's full-forward line aren't firing I can see Cork struggling for scores from elsewhere.

Would have to agree, don't think Hurley is as good as his brother either. Deane isn't good enough, not a Cork county footballer.

Cork will continue to be inconsistent, with the injuries to the likes of Hurley & Powter and with the Nemo lads missing they'll loose games between now and the end of the season.

Kerry going for their 6th munster title in a row this summer and its hard not to see them emulate their great team of the late 70's early 80's by winning 8 in a row. Cork football is at a very low ebb.

Would agree with those predictions

How many of the Nemo players do you expect to come straight back into the starting team when they are available for selection?

Going on Frank Greaney's tweets it looks like the Jackson's and Olding's stories differ. And they're contradicted by other evidence from various sources. If it does come down to who the jury believe is telling the truth......

It does. As it was always likely to.

I thought that was very telling. The only one who seems to be fairly consistent with their stories is the IP. Today’s evidence is not good for Olding and Jackson as they come across as arrogant drunks who have contradictory stories. This will not sit well with the jury.

Unless the 7 lads in the jury like a drink and understand getting pissed can have its moments! And that's that, we dont know how these people are going to go with whats been said

I still believe that there is no real hard evidence to say they raped a girl and stand over it based on the snippets we have heard..

For me this has started out ok and went downhill and rape regret stupidity arrogance and alcohol have all played their part in a crazy night.. something went on but we'll never know, and to be fair they dont seem to know

Do you take some sort of perverse joy out of explaining away problems for likely rapists? You seem be the first line of defence force in this thread.

As much as I hate to agree with you - his entire post history in this thread is somewhat disturbing

Cork continue with their policy of not naming a squad of 26

Anthony Casey in goal is the lad who had the nightmare in the U21 final in 2016

I wouldnt be too surprised if Cavan pull off a bit of a shock here.

Quote
1. Anthony Casey (Kiskeam)

2. Sam Ryan (St Finbarr’s)
3. Jamie O’Sullivan (Bishopstown)
4. Micheal McSweeney (Newcestown)

5. Tomas Clancy (Fermoy)
6. Brian O’Driscoll (Tadhg MacCarthaigh)
7. Cian Kiely (Ballincollig)

8. Ian Maguire (St Finbarr’s — captain)
9. Cillian O’Hanlon (Kilshannig)

10. Kevin Flahive (Douglas)
11. Sean White (Clonakilty)
12. Ruairi Deane (Bantry Blues)

13. Michael Hurley (Castlehaven)
14. Colm O’Neill (Ballyclough)
15. Mark Collins (Castlehaven)

Subs:

16. Ryan Price (O’Donovan Rossa)
17. Kevin Crowley (Millstreet)
18. Matthew Taylor (Mallow)
19. Conor Dorman (Bishopstown)
20. Kevin O’Driscoll (Tadhg MacCarthaigh)
21. Daniel O’Callaghan (Clyda Rovers)
22. Cian Dorgan (Ballincollig)
23. John O’Rourke (Carbery Rangers)
24. Stephen Sherlock (St Finbarr’s)

Wouldn't be a big surprise if Cavan win, either way i'm expecting Cavan to gain promotion back to Div one now. What I can't get over is the amount of poor mouthing the Cavan supporters were doing before the league started. They won 4 in a row Ulster U21 titles 2011 to 2014 those players are at the right age to make Cavan established Div one team in the years ahead if not they will be underachieving.
