Making it an hour long has made a massive difference to it. Always look forward to them.

Sambo a great operator no doubt, and character to go with it.  But ...not even sure if he was the best hurler in his house lol.

His older brother was some act. Shane....went to Australia when he was 18 I think but was supreme in his age group and already the main man for Cushendall.

Should Antrim u20s minus a few be losing so heavily to Donegal? Genuine question, don't know the circumstances but seems strange. If I'm being disrespectful to Donegal I apologise.

It would have been a seasoned men's team who have 5 lads in from other counties against wains.

Richie Ryan scored 2-10. From Limerick, big man.

Was at the game, Donegal seniors a decent hurling team, we struggled with size and physicality they brought, particularly from our puck out . Better than a training session, and mgt know now who has the grit and physicality they will need to compete in Leinster championship

For someone who runs about getting people banned you are not very welcoming, no class, as for your refereeing

No class?

Did you read your post?

And what’s my refereeing got to do with your post putting down Donegal hurling?

Like I said, stick to the football.

As for getting people banned, that clampit did that all by himself

I was a wee bit shocked myself when I saw the result. Would expect an Antrim U-20 team to be beating a weaker Ulster counties senior team.

At club level this year alone we’d no winners of provincial championships, didn’t get to the semifinals in the lower championships and beat handy in senior.

Under20 is young, even college hurling is older again, Donegal ain’t bad, disappointing but not shocked.

Tipp thought they would throw out a second string v Kerry, got their asses handed to them

Cloud cuckoo land yous boys living in.  Derry struggled to beat this team last year ,won by point in the end
Donegal are 4th strongest in Ulster now easily .

They have really good homegrown hurlers plus boys from Tyrone, Armagh, Clare, Galway, Antrim and Limerick

Plus Tipperary. Didn't think they had anybody from Antrim though.
