Doesn't bode well for the upcoming championships.

14 day quarantine with their work from travelling to the north  :(

We're like lepers up here lol.

Not good. The whole thing needs called off.

How do you combat the likes of that work thing? You would need to play all the games down south.

the past few fixtures being conceded will see other games go that way. To try and continue with matches now is just pure folly.

We cant say its an 'elite sport' when we are armatures. We don't get continued testing done as its only done in the event of someone actually getting it and by that stage its too late.

Im all for our games to continue but not at the expense of lads getting the virus

From reading that I took it that it was being invoked by some employers outside of the guidelines. There is no stipulation to do so by law.
They also were using Ballymena as an excuse as if it is any worse or better than comparable towns in the South.

Lads we have to look at the reality of it, Waterford have nothing to play for in the league, they can't go up nor down.

When it comes to Championship do we really think that teams with a good crack at Silverware are going to concede. Even if the 'lesser' teams do concede to the like of say Dublin what difference is this really to any Leinster championship match, they steam role them anyway and the province, that however opens up a whole different debate.

I think we have to accept this year is fraught with the unknown, however if we have 25 teams willing to give us a championship so be it, I would rather keep our audience and have a GAA feel good factor to some degree than loose young souls to the relentless drive of the EPL

If true, an absolute disgrace but it should be noted that this was a secondary complaint from them after the thinly veiled jibe that they wanted Antrim to come and meet them halfway to play at a neutral venue, which was rightly refused.

A poor statement by Waterford IMO.

No issue with any team not feeling comfortable at the minute and not fielding a game, especially a meaningless one for them. However, don't try and push the blame towards the opposition.

It is a statement full of waffle and spin. Embarrassing is right. It doesn't help us either, we would have wanted Sligo going into their match believing promotion was still possible for them. They know it isn't now.

Not to impressed with statement, trying to suggest Antrim are complicit in it as well for not agreeing to a neutral venue. The bit that sticks out for me is the reference to Northern Ireland instead of Ulster. West brit language. Do they not realise the GAA is a 32 county association.

There's enough wrong with the statement without bringing that into it. The COVID issue in urgent is clearly exacerbated by having two jurisdictions on the island. Michelle and Arlene agent setting policy in Donegal.

Alongside Covid concerns, it's a cost saving exercise - 3 buses required for 2 day trip, over night stay for 35 , cost approx £7k, for a dead rubber match for Waterford !
