Rdowney and Cbolla to win. Rdowney and Camross to go down to the wire after a tough battle. Ctown to test Cbolla but Cbolla will have too much up front.

Canít call Rathdowney Errill v Camross.
Will stew on it!

Castletown have a much stronger panel than they have had for a while. I think they were very short by the time their last game came around last year. Thatís surely a good sign and a sign of heading in the right direction.
Think this will be a mental hurdle for them. They arenít capable of winning the game in my opinion, but surely capable of a better performance than what had come very the last few encounters with the big teams.
Nothing to gain here for Clough Ballacolla, a stumbling win might be the best possible scenario for the champions to refocus for a final.

Abbeyleix & Clonaslee to reach the intermediate final.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

Not too impressive frm abbeyleix this evening but did enough. Phortlaoise had chances but we're wasteful and hit a few tame efforts at rowland. Needed all those to go in or over to have any chance. They'll still be worthy favourites but not as definite as many think

Clonaslee looked good at times and then let camross back in. I'm not sure they have anough in the midfield or halfforward line to win though. Don't think itll be a high scoring final.

In fairness itís kind of lose-lose for the relegated team. Almost every year they have stumbled along & bar The Harps & Portlaoise have come straight back every time.
Itís that sort of grade.
Playing decent teams.
You are seen as beatable.
Motivation levels arenít what they should be.
Tricky one.

Rathdowney Errill v Camross
Still tricky.
Camross always more than the sum of their parts. But those parts alone are pretty impressive now. Some very dangerous forwards, some very cute backs.
Lots of industry thrown into the mix.
Camross scored 4-26 and 3-21 v the weaker sides in their group.
Only managed 0-15 v Clough Ballacolla, albeit in bad weather.

Rathdowney Erill posted 5-22, 2-26 and 2-23 against teams at least as good as the two weaker in Camrossí group.

I almost always tip RE , and they let me down at some stage most years. It could be here.
One thing that sways me is the damage Ryan Mullaney was allowed cause when Camross played Castletown.
This was in a game when his 5 forward companions made very little inroads.
They wonít have the luxury of having to worry about 1 man today.
RE by 5.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

2 good games yesterday Ctown improving big time and we're well in the game until the Ref decided to give everything to Cbolla best team won but with the help of the ref. Cbolla corner forward stuck the the Ctown player in the face then fell down himself pretending he was hit mean act. Camross got over the line with hard work Rdowney to me lost this on the line leaving 2 top players in reserved for too long.

Camross always had that in them yesterday. All singing off the one hymn sheet up there now .
Castletown use of Ryan Mulleaney was interesting and didnít really work out particularly in the second half . In fairness to them though they rattled C/B in the first half . Young team and will come again .

Abbeyleix to win and Camorss to cause an upset. CB are in a county final without really getting out of 2nd gear and its very hard to just turn it on when required after a summer like that. That semi final win will stand to Camross no end.

I don't believe Cbolla were in second gear in the Sfinal they got a good test until the Ref decided to give them every thing going in the second half.

From what I seen they didn't look anywhere near the team they can be in the 1st half. Went up the level required in the 2nd and got the job done, they never looked in danger of losing that once the 2nd half got under way. I don't remember the ref doing anything outrageous that would have suggested the result going any other way way. They won by 10 odd points pulling up...Anyway Ill stick with what I said previously, Camross to cause an upset against a potentially flat Ballacolla.

Nothing outrageous is right Cbolla were always going to win but a few handy frees made it a bit easier for them. I believe camross have a few injuries for Sunday.
