I like it,  always thought though that they should switch balls at half time even if it gave the aussies a massive advantage.

You ever watch club football at this time of year on bad pitches; it literally is muck!

The last two tests have had some of the top players for each of the countries playing good close games in front of nearly 40,000 on both sides of the world. Gives a bit of exposure to our top players at a time of the year when the press usually focus on other sports. If you don't like it it's very easy to ignore.

The best Australians do not play in this farce
Such emotional, dramatic language about a game you presumably don't watch. Is it on instead of your favourite TV show?

All weather or top quality surfaces nowadays shame on any county board that decide to fix any high profile club games on bad pitches.

I donít know of any stadiums in Ulster with all weather pitches. Where do you want all the spectators to go?

Don't know about the others but Celtic Park is in phenomenal shape for the time of year. Owenbeg taking the brunt of the matches has left it in bad shape but CP was immaculate for the County Final last weekend.

My abiding memory of the International Series is falling in love with Darren Fay, after a life long obsession with hating everthing Meath GAA related!

Not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

(Also loved Sean Marty Lockhart from that team)

The only way I'd have any interest in this is if the Dublin team went out to play the Aussies.

I think that would take some of the romanticism out of it, professionals from one sport against professionals from another doesnít really have anything going for it  ;D

No Dubs for International rules by the sounds of it.

Quote
There is likely to be no Dublin players in Irelandís international rules travelling party, which leaves for Australia in just over two weeks. This would be the first time that All-Ireland champions have been unrepresented in the 33-year history of the series.

Dermot Earley, who is one of manager Joe Kernanís selectors, revealed the prospect at a press conference in DCU on Thursday.

ďThere havenít been any (Dublin players) in training. Weíve asked a lot of the Dublin squad to come in but just because of injuries, club commitments, guys just wanting to take a break, I donít think there will be any Dublin representation on this but again, thatís for Joe to announce.Ē

Jim Gavinís panel have been involved in county championship matches since the All-Ireland final in September and although just the Dublin final remains, a number of high-profile players are still involved with their clubs whereas others have work commitments.

disappointing if no Dubs play. I understand the guys in the county final not playing but why would the others not want to represent their country
