Jesus if no team is fit to relegate this Clonaslee side they should f**k off down to junior with themselves.
Survival is their speciality. They are experts at it.
What Annanough are getting out of this arrangement is beyond me. Baffling.

Thanks to Laois Today for this information.

Killeshin seem to have a very young mobile team don’t they ? Seems to be some potential there as a team

Joseph's seem to be down a few players - Jason and Kevin Campion, James Doyle, Danny and Paddy Hickey.
Anyone know if any of them will be back for the later rounds? Could they trouble Portlaoise?

Maybe to a point they could trouble Portlaoise . I think out of all the teams at the moment Joseph’s  are the closest to Portlaoise. Young Josh Lacey will be a good addition to the side next year when he’s of age to play . But still I can’t see Portlaoise being beaten this year anyway .

Portlaoise are miles ahead in my opinion and they need to show that. They were playing with Graigue the last day out and could have beaten them by what they wanted. They need to go foot to the floor for the whole game because Laois is no preparation for Leinster

Portlaoises aim this year is a Leinster title and so it should be . With a team of Brody , Saunders/Cotter, Healy/Flanagan , Seale, Holland , Dillon , Chris Finn, Lillis, Ciaran McEvoy/ Adrian Kelly,Benny Carroll/ Rogers, Boyle , Glynn/Smyth , Cahillane , Bruno, Lawless / Ricky Maher plus a decent second team behind them behind it’s easy to see why .
