pretty flat game last night. it threatened at times to be an entertaining game but the rain before hand and at the start of the game turned it into a messy game.

Lgiel were up by 2 a few times but we always managed to peg it back again. we were missing a few players but those who stood in did their jobs and we were able to bring on the likes of Keelan and Ronan molloy as subs to see the game out.

Tough game this weekend away to Cdall which would finish the league off for us fingers crossed.

The expansion of the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship will be discussed at a meeting next week according to Leinster GAA chairman Jim Bolger.

Both a six-team championship and an eight-team championship are possibilities. The latter would be split into two groups of four.

It would be a departure from the five-team championship which has been in place since the introduction of the round robin format last year.

"We have a Leinster council meeting next week and we will discuss it at that," said Bolger at the PwC Player of the Month awards on Wednesday.

I even mentioned at looking at having two groups of four at one stage because we were looking at Carlow, Laois, Offaly and Westmeath, we felt they had closed the gap to a level that allowed us to look at that option.

We will discuss next week the possibility of having two fours.

It is timely to review it now and we will look at what options are available to us. We will know next week what the feeling is when the counties go together.

Calls for the expansion of the Leinster championship have become louder following Laois' victory over Dublin in the weekend's preliminary All-Ireland quarter-final.

"I am certainly conscious of the impact of yo-yoing for one team and with all due respect, maybe Laois could stay up there next year," said Bolger.

"But look at what happened at Offaly already, after coming down last year and Carlow are this year’s Offaly, at present. What Carlow would have learnt this year may be lost by going back to the McDonagh.

"So, to ensure teams are able to sustain what they have learnt by going up to the top level, the pace of the game and the skills they would have honed, it may not be beneficial for them to go straight back down.

"It is easier to sustain that level against stiffer opposition, with all due respect to the McDonagh group."

Bolger said that any changes would not come into effect until 2021.

"We have to bring this to Congress so it won’t kick in til the following year. We are bound by rules in that sense."

the feis used to be a good day out but its getting later each year and most the players are away on holidays this time of the year it turns it into a pointless competition.

seems to be a fair split in the middle of the league with the teams at the top and bottom. That being said its a very competitive league, much like D2 and the top of D3

tbh the lads looked like they cared as much as i did standing in the rain watching it. Ballycastle were well up for it and fully deserved to be 12 points up at half time.

I was more pissed at having to pay £5 for a feis cup semi final! f**king rip off. i though they were taking the piss when they told me a fiver

Yeah wouldn’t read too much into results in July

id agree there, theres a lot of teams who arent in the position to win leagues/promotions and are trying out players etc at this stage of the year along with holidays. you wouldnt read into any of the results at the moment for some teams.

Likewise Dr, if all saints get the win they'll fancy there chances, big game for yourselves in Randalstown, anyone off the top 5 will fancy a crack at div 1, especially Whitehill if they get momentum with 4h games and new manager

yeah thats true. that top half of the table is very evenly matched this year. Not much between the sides.

interesting rematch on wednesday night with Moneyglass playing Ballymena again after the drawn/wasnt drawn game on friday night.

If moneyglass can get a result you would have to fancy them to take the second spot in D2.

we have a crappy run now of 4 away games and 1 at home but thats the joys of having already played at home to the other teams earlier.

A bit of debate over the final score in the Ballymena M’Glass game to. Ballymena and reporters had Ballymena winning the game by a point and ref had it a draw.

PH is a shocking ref, shouldn’t be allowed to put a whistle to his mouth unless it’s calling his dog back.

Heard it was a bit of a hash at the end of it.

Happened us in Lisburn the other week. We were winning at a stage by a point but the ref had it 2 points to the other team. The Lisburn bench even laughed when he shouted out the score at that point. Thank fully we ended up winning by a point but we should of won by 2 points.

Ref admitted at the end he realised that he had it wrong when he heard their bench laughing.

You playing it cool dr...

I was surprised to see cushendall win as St. John’s looked to have quite a few seniors in there( well from reading reports). Cushendall always seem to tick over well at these kind of levels.

i learned my lessons last year. I got carried away before the senior semi final and ended up having to suck eggs over it lol  :D

but yes we enjoyed last night down to how good these young lads are. they love to pass the ball and are all pushing each other to get into that senior team which has made them all very competitive and train that much harder.

Cushendall always seem to get a result against the Johnies esp when they are not favourites or they are backed into a corner.

has anyone any idea when the final is?

the game was over in the first 5 mins of the game. we were 3-02 to 0-00 up and it killed the game off completely as a contest.

it was a game that as a supporter we get to enjoy how good a crop of players we have there and some of their hurling was a joy to watch. Michael mcGarry from Lgiel had a good game tagging 7 points for his effort.

Cdall will be a tough final as i fancied St Johns to win that game. they had a fair chunk of senior players in their squad so i thought they would have too much for the Dall.

pointless game last night against Portaferry in the league. they were missing their county players and you could tell that.

have to feel a degree of sympathy for them in having to field two Wednesdays in a row in north antrim and also not having a full panel.

That being said it was a good performance from ourselves missing so many players as well with the final game this Sunday before the league splits.
