Have Galway withdrawn from u20 championship according to http://connachtgaa.ie/fixtures-results/ they don't seem to be in the Draw


That Connacht GAA website!

Is the U20 going to be a bit of a farces this year? Maybe not for stronger countries but we're definitely going to be missing several players due to them being on U20 panels. Think the rule this year is daft and of course favours those with greater resources.

I thought that although Kerry will probably the team who suffers most, as they'll be missing both O'Se & Clifford.

I don't think the most considering as they have the pick of three All Ireland minor winning teams. The rule is all the more daft when you see Hurling U20 championship to be will have players allowed to play both the under-age competition and senior, unlike football. This years U20 championship scheduled for June is a farce also as a lot of players won't be able to play due to leaving cert exams.

Given games are on Saturdays (at least in Connacht) the few Leaving Certs on U20 panels will probably either start anyways (if they’re essential) or be on the bench.

Off subject but have a team ever been 8/13 or odds on of any kind to win the all Ireland before the championship starts?
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.

Well he'd have the strength alright but the thing with Comer is he has a fair turn of pace too. Donaghy was never going to run away from O'Shea last year.

Also not being able to tackle is a bit of a hindernce for a full back.

Not a chance.
Harrison or Higgins I would think will pick Comer up.
Or possibly Barrett who has played in the fb line in the past.

I'd say Barrett is their best bet.

Very much doubt it , remember im not talking about the final itself , im talking about now as in before the championship starts.

Don't mind Seafoid, he's always mad to talk about 2001, otherwise known as 'the year Meath hammered Kerry and no one cares what happened after that.'
If you were any use you'd be playing.
