Team for Sunday


1. Eoin Fleming (Borris-in-Ossory-Kilcotton)
2. Lee Cleere (Clough Ballacolla)
3. Leigh Bergin (Shanahoe)
4. Dwane Palmer (Camross)
5. Cahir Healy (Portlaoise)
6. Ryan Mullaney (Castletown)
7. Sean Downey (Ballinakill)
8. Ross King (Rathdowney Errill)
9. Patrick Purcell (Rathdowney Errill)
10. Cian Taylor (Portlaoise)
11. Charles Dwyer (Ballinakill)
12. Ben Conroy (Slieve Bloom)
13. Willie Dunphy (Clough Ballacolla)
14. Neil Foyle (Borris-in-Ossory-Kilcotton)
15. Aaron Dunphy (Borris-in-Ossory-Kilcotton)

At the end of the day we have our limitations but the lads will still give it everything. There are some really good, young hurlers there and every game gives them more experience. They might as well go for it tomorrow and who knows. Maybe Wexfords second string are not so hot (that's if Fitzy rests lads)

Allianz HL 1B
Wexford    4    4    0    0    25    8
Galway    4    3    0    1    63    6
Limerick    4    3    0    1    52    6
Kerry    4    1    0    3    -46    2
Laois    4    1    0    3    -53    2
Offaly    4    0    0    4    -41    0

If we're being honest here, the likelihood is that we lose to Wexford meaning it's either Offaly or Kerry in the play off. A point is enough to keep Kerry clear but the only way Offaly can avoid the play off is by beating Kerry and if they do that it will be Laois v Kerry as Offaly have the best scoring difference. Would a Laois v Kerry decider be in Portlaoise seeing as the league game was in Kerry.

I wouldn't be risking lads this weekend if they are not 100% fit. Can't see Wexford taking their foot off the pedal with Davy at the helm so we need everyone fit for what will be a relegation game against Kerry or Offaly.

Can we stop with the Darren Strong corner back experiment. To be honest I never saw him more as a half forward but successive managers have put him in the half back line but corner back. There has to be a better 'corner' back than Darren Strong in the county. Play Strong further up field.

Think I remember Monaghan beating us in a quarter or semi final in Croke Park aswell around that time.

Couple of interesting results from the schools competitions during March.

St Fergals were beaten by St Fintans from Sutton in Dublin (not a particularly big school) in the Juv C semi final. What's happening with Fergals as they seem to be in trouble with the hurling in the school. They really need to have a look at this.

Laois Schools lost by 2 points to Good Counsel in Juv H 'A' league semi final. They have performed reasonably well in this competition. Are Mountrath CS involved in this as I haven't seen them mentioned anywhere?

On another note the likes of Naas CBS is winning the SH B final against Colaiste Eoin which is a big result for a Kildare school and is good for hurling.

As has been stated many times we need to start a primary level which feeds into secondary schools and these competitions.

When Emerson was on form there was no stopping him. Just didn't happen enough. Back in the nineties we regularly finisd in the top half of Div 1. In fact I think we topped it one year but lost in the play offs. Serious team that never really clicked come championship time bar Meath in Navan.

It was interesting to read Jack Nolans piece where he said that the players are happy with management and management seems to be happy with the players there is a problem. The quote is below.

'Of course the players are putting in a huge effort and sacrifice at training but if the players are happy with the management and the management happy with the players then there is something seriously wrong with the performances on the field.

There is no shape to the team. There is no describing the type of football they are playing in positive terms'

It would be great to get the win this evening and progress to a Leinster Final. It would be a good boost for the county. Best of luck to all involved.

It showsbthat there are hurlers in the football parts of the county. There's always lads who prefer hurling so thats why they need the structures and support. Thats why clubs like Slieve Margy need to get support from CB and keep going.

The problem is, blueandwhite, that if it contains Offaly and one other, the likelyhood even with 2 up and 2 down is that it will be the same teams every year. It won't be Laois or Carlow going up. Untill serious effort is put into these counties nothing is going to change any time soon!
