What I find hilarious is that they show the "highlights" and then focus on an incident they may not have shown in those "highlights". It's amateur hour. If it was an U20 or ladies rugby match though......

Why would you show a lowlight in a package called 'highlights' in the first place? Time to put your thinking cap on..

The basic problem is that in July they do not have enough time to do justice to all the games.
They need longer coverage of each game, maybe put some extended stuff on the player on a Monday and then show additional shows midweek with this content.

Martin Carney is one blabbermouth throughout the whole game and manages to say nothing.

.

I did chuckle when Kildare got their late goal.

Carney just roars out "brilliant" like your man from The Fast Show. Settle down Martin.

He's been reading too many business guru textbooks - 'the Dublin bench gives them a sustainable competitive advantage'.

The Dublin bench is a peripheral competency.

I see they have edited Ger Cannings commentating on the Sunday game. During the live match he hadn't a clue who scored the Tyrone goals.

So kildare get tanked by the dubs and get ranked 5th out of 12. Rossies tank Galway and they are ranked 6th and 7th resp. Poor stuff lads.

For what its worth I'd say Down won't recover but Monaghan/Armagh are very capable of beating kildare

Sunday Game have sank to new depths. Ranking 12 counties and then sticking camogie analysis in the middle of the programme. Then shove the qualifier matches at the end of the programme.

It is rather odd to rank the teams before showing the games!
