Title: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: SCFC on August 29, 2021, 11:53:26 AM
Just started this to avoid confusion with the 2020 thread.
Great result for Castletown the other night!

Ye Ctown the better team hit a lot of wides aswell. Borris/kilcotton very lucky to get a draw. Rdowney looked very good again Camross.

Great results for Castletown, Abbeyleix & Ballyfin.
Abbeyleix might be a little deflated right now, but I think when they reflect on things this point may be a very valuable one. I genuinely think they will beat Camross.
Worrying times for Ballinakill.
Borris Kilcotton will improve.
Rosenallis have Keating and possibly Dooley to return.

Dooley? Thought he was tied up w/ the rugby?

Borris/ Kilcotton may improve short-term, but long term? Their second team is old, and what have they coming through underage?

I just read the report of their second team’s game. Jesus that is an old team. There must be a large number of young lads hurling junior?

Dooley is tied up currently. He is hardly tied up on a permanent contract or for 12 months of the year at this stage? Or perhaps he is?

I have no idea what contract he's on, but if he's with Leinster u20s, he won't be hurling. I think they get a week or two break in October, and he may be available for a game then, but depends what way the Rosenalis games fall, I suppose.

C/B and Rosenalis a draw?!

Think Camross could rattle B/K.

Castletown to beat the Harps.

Well spotted. Fixed that there. Can’t see Rosenallis keeping it tight unfortunately.

Castletown first team into the qfinal good game last night Harps got a ball of soft frees Ctown hit 3.11 from play. Rdowney and Borris /kcotton to win today.
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: Keyser Söze on September 13, 2021, 06:10:10 PM
Rosenallis have some job on their hands to stay senior
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: Laois man on September 13, 2021, 08:09:46 PM
Hard to see Rosenallis staying up hard to do both codes with a small panel. Cbolla should top the group looking like it could be a Rdowney v Cbolla final but Borris/kcotton will think different i think.
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: burdizzo on September 14, 2021, 09:10:03 AM
I see David Dooley did in fact play at the weekend. Not that it made much difference...
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: Robbo on September 14, 2021, 01:39:16 PM
I think Borris/K could catch Rathdowney the next day.
Especially with Ross King not playing. Would give them a massive boost.

Rosenallis and The Harps could be a nervy game. The Harps surely have better hurlers.

Ballacolla will beat Castletown and I think Camross will overcome Abbeyleix.

Intermediate looks very open. Portlaoise and Ballinakill are probably the teams to beat. Wouldn't rule out Ballyfin; the weekends loss might be the kick they needed. Colt-Shanahoe likely to go down. Be interesting to see if the amalgamation could withstand that.

To break up would be suicidal for both clubs.

Perhaps but things don't seem great there.
A mid-Laois area team is something that needs to be considered.

Borris Kilcotton done good work, getting lads to tog out and beat Clonad Intermediate to spare their Junior team to win they county final,
Will prob make the intermediate final now too, Ballacolla look to be well ahead of the pack & unlikely to lose anymore.

Rosenallis have to be dead certs to go down, very poor on Sunday didn’t look like the wanted to be there, Ballacolla flying it at the moment but bigger tests to come,
Semi finals are still going to be the big 4, Ballacolla, Rathdowney Errill, Borris Kilcotton & Camross will beat Abbeyleix and re group.

County panel back on a gym programme since last Monday night.

Any new names on the county panel?

Abbeyleix will fancy beating camross.
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: Ogie on September 20, 2021, 10:03:41 PM
Camross, Borris Kilcotton, The Harps & Ballacolla with wins this weekend is by guesses!
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: Laois man on September 20, 2021, 10:19:08 PM
Very hard to call Aleix v Camross and Borris/kcotton vRdowney/Errill. Cbolla will beat Ctown but maybe not by as much as people think. Rosenallis have to perform or else there gone.
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: Silkyskillssunshinee on September 20, 2021, 10:41:40 PM
Camross to beat Abbeyleix by 2
Rathdowney-Errill to beat Borris-Kilcotton by 3
Clough-Ballacolla by 14 over Castletown
The Harps by 8 over Rosenallis
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: burdizzo on September 20, 2021, 10:46:53 PM
I dunno - I think Abbeyleix might beat Camross, and that R/E will beat B/K by a good bit.
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: Robbo on September 21, 2021, 07:36:07 AM
RE without Ross King weakens them to be fair.

I think BK will be more up for it with a point to prove.

Ballacolla will beat Castletown but hopefully it's tight for at least a half. And I think it will be.

I think The Harps could hammer Rosenallis and other game is too hard to call.

Anyone any thoughts on the Premier Intermediate?
Ballyfin, RE, Ballinakill and Slieve Bloom all with a win each.
I think Ballyfin will beat RE and Ballinakill will beat Slieve Bloom.
That would allow RE through in 3rd place with Ballyfin topping the group ahead of Ballinakill on head-to-head.

The other group should see comfortable wins for Portlaoise and Camross with them finishing 1st and 2nd respectively. Clonaslee will take 3rd and Colt/Shanahoe looked doomed already.

You’d say that Camross haven’t been going well, and that they have played two very good teams and done ok
But so have Abbeyleix.
They are much faster & more mobile at the right end of the field.
I think the weekend will start with a “shock”.
Abbeyleix by 5.

Camross looked a different team last night than the previous 2 . Fitness and tactical prowess got them through which were lacking for the first two games .
Title: Re: Laois Senior Hurling Championship 2021
Post by: Robbo on September 24, 2021, 06:17:54 PM
I think Borris will win tonight in a bit of a shock.

And to add that it shouldn't really be a shock. They beat Rathdowney Errill last year.

Excellent call . Borris/K to me are now favourites to me . Hit some
Serious wides nearing 20 but final quarter Never missed a thing.  Decent crowd for a Friday evening

Not too sure about B/K as favourites although they had a good win tonight. Clough-Ballacolla beat them well enough in the county final just over a month ago. R/E were missing Ross King tonight and the likes of Eric Killeen, Paddy McKane and Mark Kavanagh still getting up to speed. They’ll coast into the semi’s and I’d pick R/E to beat B/K in a semi or a final.

Think Borris will improve even more with 4 weeks before a semi-final.
They've players coming back from injury and young lads like Tynan and Quinlan.
Wouldn't back against them.

RE used Rafter from their Premier Intermediates. Big loss that might cost them a semi-final place. Though I think they'll go threw even if they lose.
