The stroke which broke michael armstrong's arm - and received no booking!

Looks shocking bad.
Hope he recovers asap.

Have to say the coverage of this all week in the Irish News has been hysterical. I listened to a podcast about the game and it seems the game was actually played in a good spirit. Yes there were a number of serious injuries, one in particular which was off the ball. The ref dealt with the perpetrators and they have been suspended as per rule. There is no more to it than that. No one wants to see players badly injured but lets not be stoking things up.

Only a point in it at the end but Laois get the win in Dunloy today. A glimmer of hope.

What makes the competition interesting is the frequency of matches. The teams with the best panels have a huge advantage.
Carlow and Antrim are both on 4 along with Westmeath who have a game in hand

Worst behaved County team I’ve seen in years. Antrim lads being called “British b**tards” as they left the field at half time says plenty about the mindset.

You'd see a miraculous change in the rules then.

From a Laois perspective we would need Westmeath to win their last two games and for Antrim to beath Kerry while we also make sure to beat Carlow and Meath. That would put Laois joint second on 6 points with Antrim but should qualify based on head to head. I take it head to head is used when only two teams and score difference used if 3 teams are tied on the same points?

Anthony Daly was at the "sure lookit would be nice to keep Offaly up for another year" last night and whilst I agree with the sentiment it would mean extending the Leinster Championship to 6 teams..........
