Thought MM would give Corofin more of a game, obviously the semi final was a wake up call. MM probably would have more joy if they'd drawn them in the semi.

Or maybe Annaghdown are a  better team than Mounbellew-Moylough especially defensively?

After seeing the game yesterday I'd agree Annaghdown are a better team than MM, now Corofin were outstanding yesterday, a completely different team to the day they played Annaghdown but MM were disappointing. Presuming Brigids are favourites for the Roscommon championship they'll be out for revenge if they get to meet them on 12th November. Corofin were very impressive though, they'll be hard to stop in Connacht anyway.

Unlike Corofin, Brigids are in full rebuild mode. The B team that won junior easily was mostly U23 players, so they’re using the B side to develop players for the senior team, which is now filled with a lot of young lads itself. Leaders like Frankie, Mango, the AI-wining captain Gearoid Cunniffe and others are now gone. The captain of the B team was actually Robbie Kelly, a member of the AI-winning side. The biggest addition from last year would be that Peter Domican has returned from Dubai and looks to be back to his best.

They hammered their opponents in the senior final by about 25 points in the group stages a few weeks ago, and while that was partly to do with Brigids needing the win and Gaels already being quailified, it’s hard to see them overturning Brigids a few weeks later.
