Good highlights of yesterday's matches on the BBC website. Mark Sidebottom critical of both referees during the commentary.

Out of all the good points yesterday, Sidebottom/BBC had to include the incident with Watson and the corner back.

Two very enjoyable games, I thought Cushendall had the beating of St Johns when the half time whistle blew. St Johns took their chances from placed balls and fair play.

I thought Dunloy were well worth their victory.

Thought St. John's got a few handy frees. The thing with Watson and the corner back was a bit of handbags. Nothing in it worth talking about. He can still take a score when he gets a chance. Pity the other Loughgiel forwards didn't support him. Dunloy had a far better spread of scores and more options up front and that was the difference.

A few handy frees? Quite alot...

Watson still has it surely..
Was trying to be diplomatic... But yeah, quite a lot.

No point being diplomatic.. I'd love to see a re run and do a free count.
Can't give you the total free count but scorable frees McManus 0-4 from 5. Nugent 0-11 from 12.

As I see it

Skinny made a few poor calls but Dall were appealing for absolutely everything a lot of them were frees through silly tackles ,every time someone got ball in hand they were shouting steps or every hand pass they were calling for a throw,Dall should have pushed on when 8 up then the poor calls would have been irrelevant.
Dunloy learnt lessons from last year and were better team ,molloy took a lot of abuse and was unlucky not to have been awarded more frees Loughguile seemed to get them handier at the other end

Refereeing in 2nd game was pretty poor to be honest giving frees when the advantage was the better option namely bringing a free back to the 21 for a foul on w**ker when the advantage had young mc grath scoring a goal giving hop balls when the ball had been worked out and not having the cahoneys to put Watson off who had a good game but if it wasnt seen by umpires or linesman and he didn't see it then what can he do.
