Marc O'Sé is dead right.
No wonder ourselves and Dublin don't bother with this nonsense anymore.

Were any Meath players asked to take part?
Players from Intermediate and Junior Counties were not considered.

Ireland should get their big men on edge of the square and pump it in long to them only time they looked dangerous play the old school game and go for goals

You're right, it's the way we can make hay. We need lads who can kick long and accurately though and arguably two of our best at that were sick last week.

A goal (under) is only worth 2 points (overs) in this game though so we don't want to get too hung up on going for the net.

Given they have no keepers in Aussie Rules goaling is probably the best way to make up lost ground.

ireland should stick in an outfield player in goals too someone to carry out and create something not sure who but someone who can carry at serious speed .

Just watched a great documentary "The Galahs" about the first Australian Team to tour Ireland
when the played the All Ireland Champions Meath in 1967 at Croke Park

Some Royal legends being interviewed in it, interesting to see there was a game played in New York with the
proposed test in the states being talked about.
Against the New Yorkers, it sounds like the Aussies came off second best that day physically, they were up
against NYPD Cops!

bit of singing at from a Meath man at the end of the film!

Meanwhile back at the ranch...

Brilliant young Galway football prospect set to embark on Aussie Rules career with Carlton

YOUNG GALWAY FOOTBALL prospect Cillian McDaid has become the latest GAA player set to start an Aussie Rules career.
Galway Bay FM has reported today that McDaid will join Carlton after being offered a two-year professional contract and will fly out on Sunday to link up with the Melbourne-based club for the first time.

The news is a major blow to Galway football as McDaid has emerged as a huge talent. He was excellent for the county U21 side that contested the All-Ireland football final in April, scoring 1-1 in that defeat to Dublin in Tullamore.

He went on to come off the bench for Kevin Walsh’s Galway senior side in this summer’s championship meetings with Donegal and Kerry.
McDaid, who plays football with Monivea-Abbey and hurling with Craughwell, previously won an All-Ireland minor hurling medal with Galway in September 2015.

There had been strong speculation that Carlton were looking to pick up the 20-year-old, who has previously twice tested in the AFL academy in the USA.
Last year he was one of three Irish players who tested in Florida with the other two – Westmeath’s Ray Connellan and Kilkenny’s Darragh Joyce – both subsequently being snapped up by St Kilda.

McDaid will join Louth’s Ciaran Byrne at Carlton, who have a past history of Irish players including the Cork trio of Setanta and Aisake Ó hAilpín, and Ciaran Sheehan, along with Laois man Zach Tuohy, who now plies his trade with Geelong.
