No and it would not matter anyhow!
Armagh, the one true love of a mans life.

I had heard he was injured. Living in London it's hard to get up to date and accurate info at times

Got a bit of a bang in the league last week but nothing serious.

Has there ever been a clash of Down and Armagh with each team having such a low rating?

1991. Down fans leaving the ground that day told Armagh fans they were lucky to be out of the competition because they had to endure their team for another game.

Armagh were the previous year's Ulster Finalists and Down were also fairly high in the ratings too.It might have been a poor game in 1991 but both Armagh and Down going into the game were genuine contenders for the Ulster Championship that year.

From the 20s to 50s there were probably a few

At least Down are D2

Neither had won Ulster for the previous 8 years though. Neither were really contenders.

Down winning Sam in 91 was as surprising as Leicester winning the Premier League.

Unlikely AI winners,but no one would have been surprised by either Armagh or Down winning Ulster that year.It would be considered a miracle if either of them won an Ulster semi final this year.

JC is said to be in an airboot but is expected to be fit for Down.

Stop exaggerating. Monaghan are the likely semi final opponents and they were beaten by division three Longford last summer at home.

Right.How much would you place on Armagh or Down to beat Monaghan?
