Group B

Camross

Bit of a lobsided draw?? The mountain men have their work cut out to get a few scalps to make the quarter finals. Anyone have any thoughts on the draw/new format.

Top team in each gtoup into semi final, 2nd and 3rd in each group play off for other semi final places and last placed teams in relegation game.

I would be in favour of groups and round robin system,but I think it would have been better if it was top two in each group into semi finals and bottom two into relegation semi finals. That would give a real edge to all group matches.

Interesting Division 1 this year.
Probably the Top 5 Senior Championship contenders joined by Castletown (minus Slieve Bloom) and The Harps /Portlaoise from Senior A.

Heavy opening losses for Castletown and Portlaoise.

Camross looked very strong today. Very fit and really opened up in the second half. Castletown competitive but had no answer once Camross half-back line got on top.

Abbeyleix will be disappointed to lose to The Harps. Eoin Reilly a big loss. Good to see Podge Delaney hurling at 6 for The Harps.

Borris/Kilcotton were apparently short Brian Stapleton, PJ Scully and Aaron Dunphy; left them a little short against a CB team who probably needed that win a little more. Be interesting to see how both teams approach the league. Huge question-marks over both imho.

RE are going to be hard to stop. Massive county commitments and the lads not involved will be ensuring that their preparation is every bit as good as the county set-up.

Camross and RE the teams to beat.
