Just seen betting prices for Sunday's game and have to say I'm quite shocked to see Ballycastle as suck strong favourites for the game. Ballycastle 8/13, st Johns 11/8

Tradition? Leagues are for playing Championships are winning? Castle at home must play a part in those prices surely?

More likely just the bookies havenít a notion what is is going on in Antrim hurling and are guessing odds to an extent

No backdoors in the Antrim Senior championship?

Are Ballycastle harmonious this year? Is Cofi Annan managing them?

If the Johnnies are serious this year then they could well push the big teams, forget about the game the other day as they were missing a good lot, still managed to knock over 19 points (let in 5-27) without playing well or anywhere near as well as they have of late, having 'seen' them a couple of times this year they have improved...

BUT!!!! Championship at Ballycastle will be a different affair, the Town wont suffer from fright playing against the Johnnies in their own backyard and if and that's a big if, they can get out their strongest team they won't be far away

I'll be putting money on the Johnnie's at that price. St. John's are going well in the league. They drew with Loughgiel and beat ourselves. I'd say it's a long time since they had results like that. Ballycastle have been winning in Div 2 but not by big margins. Beat Armoy by 5 and Randalstown by 1 recently.

Is Div 2 two up and two down ?

Yes

I would prefer to see the leagues be one up and one down. It makes the whole thing too fluid from season to season. As long as there is no further tinkering to the leagues, one up and one down would work ok I think. Any thoughts?

I'd vote for that..  ;)

Seriously though there's not a whole pile wrong with 2 up two down as it gives a lot more to play for at the bottom of Div1 and the top of Div2 and so on and so forth.

Although I did hear of a St Galls player joking that they needed to lose a few games in case they got promoted!!

Pretty much sums them up.
