Absentees aged 30 or under
Carty, Collins, Keenan, Higgins, Shine X2, Daly x3, Cregg........

Ah here how can you count Carty in that list the fella had to retire from county due to injury, He couldnt train and has since done his achilles tendon with the club. Unfortuanaly he will struggle to play football again at any level.

Sorry to hear that Oliver.
I suppose retiree might be more accurate but he's still absent anyway.
Of course there's Harney, Cathal Compton, Corcoran and Cafferkey too.

Without injuries we'd had depth on the bench in most positions this year. People are comparing this year's panel to last but last year's panel was massive, and indeed its size was identified as one of the problems that had to be addressed this year. There's no talk of ructions this year.

Doubt any of them will be back for Final if we do get over Leitrim

Corcoran is in the US. He left panel after breaking his collar bone which would have ruled him out of any county action for the year anyway.
Compton

Harney fracture on his back does not seem to be healing with current rehab and is due for another scan soon. He might not kick a ball for the rest of the year but hopefully the scan will shed more light.

Compton needs a break from football although he technically could be fit if we reach final he has had a number of hamstring tares in last few months and really need to mind himself for the future hes only 21/22

Ya. He's played midfield more than wing-forward the last two years.

Cheers, were any kickouts coming in his direction?

Usually the aimless kind from Leitrim as they'd dropped two sweepers back and we could spray the ball short with impunity on our kick-outs. He drifted in and won a few high balls against the Leitrim backs.

Enda is more the attack-minded fielder while TOR is the workhorse midfielder doing the dirty work around the middle. TOR has been making a quietly impressive debut season at a position of a lot of need for us.
