That's scraping the apple barrel with the least excuse to draw attention to Armagh being in Div 1 in 2021.

Ross McQuillan returning to Armagh from Essendon?

McQuillan could give Armagh some badly needed pace around the middle.

Any chance they will try him at wingback?

I believe that's the case 4 games min for each county with relegation playoffs and semi finals, 5 max if they qualify for the final.

Think we are the only county with a new management team on Div 1 this year so the league will be very important for them to get things in order.

It's something that is probably overlooked but there is a very limited time this year for new managers to get a guage for their team

In a common season Tyrone would normally have been training for close to 6 months and played 12 competitive games before Championship football comes around.

This year it will likely be 2 and a bit months and 4/5 competitive games.

As it stands now the situation is intolerable  but I'd expect the current situation in the South re  infections to drop radically to pre spike levels over the next week or two, fast up and fast down. We'll see how it goes.

It's hard to see the leagues goin ahead. With the UK varient taking over and it been more transmissible cases would just shoot up again if things open up again. Wouldn't be surprised if we're in level 5 till end of March when all over 70s are vaccinated.

It's possible that there are many more people out there untested and who would test positive.

If the championship (with or without asterix) is to go ahead at some time later in the year, then the league would precede it as a warm up  of sorts.

Nothing will happen until winter is over. Covid is relentless at lower temperatures.

Probably not till we hit Level 2 in the 26 anyway.
