I'd presume Harrisson is suspended for the roscommon game after getting a straight red v Cork.

Watched the highlights tonight, Down were only 0-10 to 0-8 behind v Cork yesterday and looking competitive then a silly keeper error gave Cork a cushion of a 5 point lead and they only won by 6. Harrison will be big handful to the Roscommon full back line Cork at times had 3 men marking him.

Where were they on?

Last year Down lost to the 2 promoted  teams in the first 2 rounds and were odds on for relegation. They played Meath in the 3rd round and Meath were heavily backed.
Down beat them and Meath ultimately stayed in D2 because of this result.
Down are a bit like the Offaly hurlers mid 90s. They can play when they feel like it. The question is can Ros be consistent week to week.

I think that is an insult to the Offaly hurlers of the mid 90s.  Roscommon will win pulling up. 

There is certainly potential in the county but leaving Newry on Sunday was extremely depressing.  Down reached an Ulster Final last year in spite of the management team.

Ros are 2/5 on oddschecker.
Down aren't bad value at 5/2.

Having seen Down yesterday I can see only one outcome and thatís a comfortable win for Roscommon, we really are struggling for scores and I fear a more physical Roscommon will dominate the game, hope Iím wrong!!

Ros should win
But Rossies have their own problems
Been weak in middle third for years now. get turned over by most teams out there
Good forwards though, and that should be the difference

Thanks, I got them the next day on the TG4 player. Hopefully they had a camera at Hyde Park today.

Surprising win for Down, hopefully they beat Clare to secure safety in two weeks time and then you never know what might happen. Down can be woefully inconsistent however, and Clare are a decent side, so anything could happen.

Down full value for the win. When Ian got his trademark rush of blood to the head we were always going to be playing a dicey game. Missing the penalty and Lennonís soccer shot just after weíre the chances we had to get back into the game.

No where near good enough and Iím glad we have the Galway game to get some things sorted for the trip to Drogheda.
