Realistically how many players is that going to impact on?

A lot Iíd say.

Yeah, there could be a good bit of crossover and it'd be hard for teams not to play without their players. 

It really takes very little for teams to say they're not playing as certain players are not available - just look at club teams with one or two county lads and the 'starred' games situstion in every county.

Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

Was at the omagh v Armagh game today, atrocious conditions, should never have been played. Omagh by far the better team but tactics once again very questionable. Big McGleenan excellent for Armagh, virtually carried them but Omagh left same man on him the whole second half which was idiotic. Some bad decisions up front and a very poor goalkeeping mistake cost them also, but to be honest I canít see either of them being real contenders.

Good question.

I thought, when lock down came in, that they talked about playing it in September.

It'll hardly be played now.

Very sore dose for the young lads involved.

That's just madness! Kids are at school training away in their bubbles and how much would it be to the schools to arrange testing leading up to these very important games in their young lives?!!!

My daughter is training away with school, I dropped her off at Jstown last night and there was a senior hockey game on one pitch a rugby game on the other and I presume the Antrim hurlers were training away on the top pitch!
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

But are most of these players not at university now?

The Leinster schools final was in July. There wasn't much point arranging it for September when a lot of them would be in College.

I suppose, but still eligible due to the postponement surely?

Iím not sure eligibility is his point. Have these school teams continued to train? Were lads at university across England, Scotland etc expected to fly back in the middle of a pandemic to play these games, for schools they no longer go to?
Was there really appetite for this? I know itís a big deal for young lads but surely the whole taste had gone off it long ago.

However, had Ulster Colleges sold tickets for it....?

I was waiting on a call up for the game  ;D

Yes get your point totally, but not playing it due to possible Covid reasons shouldnít be the answer as games have happened and these lads probably would have played for their own clubs too recently
