Laois / Re: 2018 Joe McDonagh Cup
« on: May 16, 2018, 10:58:58 AM »
we're trying to be a dual county, when we don't have the resources. We should pick one and essentially drop the other code.
Simply not viable.

You can't tell the people of Portarlington that we're dropping football no more than you tell the people of Ballacolla that we're dropping hurling.

Anything is possible. We're too small for two, especially given the work on the players coming through.
Of course we're too small. That's not in question. But you can't impose one of the codes on half the county that has no interest in it. And you definitely don't want Emo hurling. Trust me😊.

I wouldn't be too critical of lads who were substituted off as as a collective Laois misfired badly in the opening half. Any one of about 10 lads could have justifiably been substituted. I also wouldn't get carried away praising lads that came on as momentum had shifted and much easier impress when you have the run of things.
A fair point but you'd have to say the first three changes were all very successful. Getting O'Connor back to his best position was important too.

He's no longer chairman but Gerry Kavanagh's legacy to Laois hurling lives on and not in a good way. Cheddar must be sick this morning after all his work is now fully undone.

Strangest game ever.
There was a wind but it didn't seem that strong.
We seemed to stumble on a stronger team as the game progressed. The first three subs in particularly improved things. Carroll brought a lot of energy and direct running while Donoher was excellent, got on a lot of ball and used it well. Kingston the younger did very well too and kicked some good scores.
Don't know what the chances of Lowry, Glynn or O'Carroll being fit for the next day are but it would be great to have the options.

100%.
What a nice chap he is too.

There are plenty of the newer bunch in with a shout of a starting place. If any of them don't make the starting 15, they will be strong substitutes off the bench. Saying that we haven't made progress in that regard is nonsense.
I didn't see anyone say "we haven't made progress". The thrust of the last few posts was that the starting team may not have many new faces to championship football. That's all was said.

To be fair it's only my guess at the team.
Championship debuts are likely for a few lads as it's a 21 man game these days. I'd imagine Carroll will either start or come on. Nerney might appear. Possibly Holland or Finn?

O'Carroll and Lowry definitely out for Saturday. I think Glynn may not be fully ready either.

I can see the team being something like;

Brody

Attride Timmons Dillon

Strong or O'Connor Begley Collins

O’Loughlin Lillis

P Kingston at 11 with 2 from Carroll, Donoher and Farrell on the wings.

Munnelly or Conway D Kingston Walsh

Portlaoise were missing Brian Glynn, Scott Lawless, David Seale and possibly Cahir Healy last night.

Was Quigley back for Timahoe?
From what I hear Quigley is very doubtful to play for Laois this year.

Barrowhouse seem to be going very well. Beat Timahoe 2-7 to 0-10 last night. And Courtwood gave Ballyfin an unmerciful beating.
