Ahh yes, silly me. The beards final. Love it.
Has Joe got 2 medals or 3?

He has two. Think he came into the squad in 2004 and played full back in the 2005 final.

The McMahons v Twin Towers was 2008 Fuzz (the year of the beards). I don't think Justy was involved in 2005.

It's confirmed. Cheetahs and Southern Kings will play in the Pro 12 next year making the tournament a 14 team competition. Two groups of seven; 2 Irish, 2 Welsh, 1 Scottish, 1 Italian and 1 South African in each group. I had heard the South African teams will play a lot of their matches in Europe but how that works for their home support is a mystery.

Yeah I think both teams will be based out of Saracens ground in North London. Must be banking on the big Saffa community in London to support them. Not sure how successful this will be tbh.

Not sure I like the sound of this at all. So for example Ulster might not play Leinster in that season or there mightn't be a Munster v Leinster game? I just don't see what this offers the Pro 12 league.

I don't know folks but I think ye are all getting away ahead of yerselves here.
I mean Kerry will be sitting waiting in the final for us having beaten Galway and Roscommon in the quarters and semis.

Will you head to the banquet yourself Fuzzman? Or head up the road on the Sunday evening for the homecoming on Monday in Aughnacloy/Garvaghy? You can stay with STG!

Does there still be that GOAL charity match for the winners a few days after the final? Wonder who we would play in that?

Is this weekends game definitely a starred one then? I know its starred round 3 so assume it is too but just checking it hasn't changed. I did think the 5 games was the maximum number of starred games and there could be less depending on progress of the fixtures. But at the same time 13 days out from a quarter final they might be happy to let the county team focus on that.

Though the club games have worked well to date for the county players and it is hard on the players in the squad not getting game time without them. It's obviously also hard on clubs who really need the points to miss their best player or players.

Next three games are all due to be starred providing Tyrone progress through the QF, leaving one last non-starred game to be placed once Tyrone are bate.

regarding your second quote, I think that this is an issue. I think Dungannon or someone similar at top of Div 2 have Aghyaran coming up which will be a starred fixture. this is a massive game for both clubs and a win could go towards securing the league and promotion. With Aghyaran missing Ronan McHugh alone they have lost a major scoring threat which could affect their promotion. I think Ronan had No.28 on him at weekend so hasn't been in the squads lately. I know that Killyclogher were allowed to play Sean Fox in starred fixture when he was on the panel.

another example is Cahir McCullagh at Greencastle, they are at the wrong end of the table and Cahir is a massive player for them


Dungannon also missing big McNulty so even enough at the end of the day.

I'd disagree there I think McHugh and McNamee are massive losses for Aghyaran compared to McNulty for Dungannon but I guess thats just the way it is for having county men. No other way around it unfortunately.

Gerard McGovern number 2.

Amazingly we could be in an AI semi final without really being tested (especially if Armagh win - we would destroy them in CP).

The break will do us no harm - get the batteries recharged and go again.

Dont see any need to change the 15 that started yesterday - great competition for places.

Thought McClure & Collie were excellent yesterday

I'd definitely have McClure starting think he has done enough to get a start now at this stage. Other than that I think the team more or less picks itself at this stage. I do think Cavanagh would be better as an impact sub at this stage of his career but there is no doubting he will be starting in Croke Park. Was he given the curly finger yesterday or taken off to be 'rested'?

IS it definitely Armagh or Kildare?

If Armagh where to beat Kildare and Monaghan beat Down would it not be open draw?

Yeah if Armagh and Monaghan were to win it would be an open draw. Kildare are missing their captain and midfielder so don't think its a foregone conclusion they will beat Armagh. Tyrone-Armagh in Croker will be like the good oul days.

No I don't think its an open draw.  That is the draw regardless of the winners.  Tyrone will play either Armagh or Kildare

Ah right maybe you are right then. I thought people were thinking it was like that because Tyrone can't play Down and Dublin can't play Kildare again in the quarters but maybe its pre planned like you say.

Well done to Mickey and the team. Mini wobble at the end of first half but thought it was more of a complacency thing rather than Down getting the upper hand with Mattie guilty of a few bad misses.

Yawnfest in Clones, was always going to be so the second Down made the Ulster Final, in fairness to Down after they settled down they were tenacious and clawed their way back into the game well, they just ran out of ideas after the break.

As for Tyrone, that is a performance that will strike no fear into the big guns going forward, Dublin are an absolute scoring machine whilst Kerry destroyed a very good Cork side, these two are way ahead of the pack and on their second half performance today Tyrone are probably the third best team in the country.

Praying for Down in Croker now, they have a terrible record in the qualifiers and we are a different team from the one they beat in the Athletic grounds.

One last thing, Tyrone's second goal was absolutely brilliant, probably the best finish we will see all year.

Ya what now?? I've heard cork described as many things this year but that's the first I've heard anyone call them a very good side!

Right so he blows a free to Down for a Tyrone man jumping into a tackle, then the excate same move from the Down man jumping into a tackle is now a free in, hows that work?

Because one team is getting well beat therefore they are given a few handy frees.
