Which foam roller is best? The smooth one or the ones with bumps?

Iíd need it for glutes, calves etc and to loosen up the back now and again.
Have you looked at the backballer? Supposed to be good, though I have never tried one.

Load of bollox . Waste of money!

Are the massage guns any use or a waste of money for likes of muscle tightness from running. Back doing runs after knee surgery almost a year post op. Any advice appreciated!

This could be a good chance to move back to u18 for minor and u21 instead of u20. Both switches have been a failure anyway and it would ensure young players dont miss out.

Bit of a leap for lads playing u15 to them go playing u18

Cheers 👍🏻

Anyone have any good tips on hurling coaching resources online to have a look at if we go into lock down?

No Martial tomorrow

The four forward players in the squad are Ighalo, James, Greenwood and Chong

Heís down to start anyways. Whether he performs is another question.

Don't think that's true . Hamstring injury. 

Hope youíre right 👍🏻

When is the last time Armagh beat Laois in the league ?was not at the game I listened to bits on the wireless great entertainment a great win seems good work with a different way of playing so the good work rolls on it looks like well done to the players involved

2014 up in Armagh last time we were beaten by them 2:18 to 1.12 if Iím not mistaken.

Armagh always lose to Laois and we were brutal today. As was the referee - for both teams. Laois very impressive in the way they managed the game. The pitch seems to need a bit of remedial work.


Re. the pitch - it did seem a bit bare. Overuse ?

They should really look at putting dugouts the other side of the terrace like Tullamore as the stand side gets awful doing every match. Might take a bit of pressure off the stand line which is nothing short of a disgrace. Running the risk of serious injury the way it is at the minute. Of course being overused no doubt contributes massively.

Re: last night a good win not too many would have predicted 3 points from 4 in our first 2 games. Brian Byrne hopefully will be a great find going forward. Defence were calm and composed on the ball and not afraid to run at Armagh who were very poor. Evan was brilliant with the ball he got. Corbett looks very calm with the ball. It will be interesting to see if his free taking skills be required over the course of the league. Probably one of the best free takers off the ground in the county at the minute.

Set up nicely for next weekend against Cavan who will be another tough game despite their result against Armagh. Division 2 will be a dogfight so every point counts to stay up.

Roscommon blow a six point lead in injury time  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;) :D

Could be a valuable point for Laois in the grander scheme of things.

Laois 2-16 v 2-27 Wexford.

First of all, that scoreline doesn't do us justice, but such is the game of hurling that a scoreline can be cruel none-the-less.

Laois were fantastic in the first half in particular and gave Wexford plenty of hurling and were unlucky not to be going in 2pts up instead of 2pts down. We seemed to lack another player or two who are confident enough to take a long range pop at a point, particularly when we have a breeze on our back. Wexford showed this in the last fifteen minutes by reeling off several long range points, though the breeze was gaining more momentum towards the full time whistle as the drizzle sprayed across the field.

Wexford's fitness and conditioning certainly showed in it's superiority over Laois from around 55mins onwards. Laois lads were getting weary and seemed energy sapped at that stage. However, compared to this time last year I think Laois look a bit better in this department. The game was played at near-championship pace and both teams served us up a good battling game despite the heavy underfoot conditions.

For Laois, Enda Roland's 1-01 was a joy to watch as was Willie Dunphy's goal. Who was it that robbed and lobbed the Wexford player before laying it off for Dunphy to score? Excellent skill! Dunphy had to pull a bit of magic too to finish it off. One of the nicest goals Laois have scored in OMP!

I felt Senior in the No.2 shirt was very good and he certainly is a prospect for the future. Delaney in the No.6 shirt did well for his debut there (don't recall him at No.6 in recent games). Paddy Purcell was very good and is an old reliable at this stage. Roddy was class in the first half, pity about his missed frees in the second half and he seemed quieter (but not totally quiet either).

Overall not a bad night at the races and I'd say Brennan is happy with the performance overall. Good crowd there tonight.

Wexford were still very wasteful as well with their shooting in both halves. Definitely canít fault work rate of Laois. Wexford bringing a running game and backs attacking from deep carrying the ball. Definitely the conditioning between the two teams told towards last 15-20 minutes. A bit open down the centre at times but least we forget theyíre Leinster champions and will probably not far off come end of August. Hereís hoping a few lads to come back from injury likes of John Lennon and Aaron Dunphy big losses. Roddie decent tonight but needed more help up front.

Anyone here done Cancun Mexico.  Looking to go in mid August for honeymoon but skeptical if hurricane season. Any tips greatly appreciated 👍🏻

Hurricane season starts June, but September onwards is when you'd be most likely. I was there prior, never seen anything but Blue Sky and that was at start of August. Some spot - Plenty of Americans making their presence known mind you which can be tiresome.

Assuming you'd be all inclusive, but eating out wasn't too bad either for a change. Food is fine, if not a bit Americanised at this stage. Local beers are 100% and you'd have no bother drinking them - It's pretty much luxury, as you've ones on the beach hauling cold drinks up and down all day too, especially if you go for a resort which advertises a private beach.

The markets can be a bit of headache to be honest, lovely for a walk about to break up the day but I found the locals to be very irritating....not leave you alone when you walk past stuff.

You'll be told about the show in Coco Bongos - make sure you do it, was excellent and you'll be waited on hand in foot if you go the VIP option.

Chichen Itza is must do, bit of a trek. But worth it. The jungle is good too, I enjoyed all that. You can do the swim with Dolphins and Sharks thing too - the latter I'm not ashamed to say I wanted nothing to do with.

Oh yes, it's warm....if you don't take the sun well be very careful. Especially on the old ankles....

Cheers for that! Humming and hawing to put down deposit for mid August for honeymoon. I hear mighty stuff.
