Good win for Mayo considering the strength of the two sides that started. McStay's sides are consistent can score high and concede too much and if the latter isn't corrected the Rossies will not be reaching the super 8 this summer.

Iím sure a junior match played in early May will have a lot of bearing on the summer ahead. Iíve heard it all now.

If a team with 10/12 of our real Senior panel can't bate a crowd from Mayo Junior and Inter club players it doesn't inspire much confidence for the Summer.
Conceding 2-15 to junior/Inter forwards!!!!
Will 10/12 of that Roscommon team make the championship match day 26 this summer, surely a number of players will have played themselves out of that panel now after that result tonight?

Great result for Mayo they play leitrim next who beat them in the final of this competition last year.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Given the different eligibility rules and the fact that Mayo mgmt were only put in place in the past month, it's a terrible result for the Rossies and a very unexpected and welcome result for Mayo.

Featherstone Domican 2 Dalys Harney 2 Lennons C Cregg plus Walsh D'Arcy Timothy anyway.
Terrible result ?
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

We didnít even bother fielding a team in this competition for half a decade and when we did it was a reserve team of senior panelists.

Itís hard to overstate how little is thought of the junior grade not just in Roscommon but the whole country, the competition needs to be revamped to have any meaning. The players that played tonight got more worth from the challenge matches than the competition itself.

Sean Boylan's son Ciaran scored a goal 5 minutes into injury time to get the win for the Mayo juniors over Roscommon! Mayo brought on Matt Flanagan and played him as a fly keeper to create the extra man leading to the move for the winning goal!!

Good win although that Boylan lad would need to do it in the last min of an AIF to make up for the sins of his father  ;)

I know that, Mayo have shown very little interest in it either. But surely Rossie senior panellists should be beating Mayo non-senior panellists?
Regardless the best thing was Matty Flanagan coming on as sub goalie, playing as sweeper and creating overlap for winning injury time goal :D

Not what i recall, it was mostly U21s or former senior players that made up past Roscommon Junior teams. This current Roscommon junior team as rosfan said had 10 to 12 senior panelists and have the senior management over them and lets be honest Roscommon should be beating that Mayo junior team tonight by a bit to spare instead of losing to them.

Hear Ultan Harney got injured again.
Hopefully he'll be ok.
Tonight is a right fcuk up by Syfīn's hero who obviously thought the JFC was worth something.
I would have thought we'd have used it to give U20s a game seeing as there's no Hastings this year.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

You seem much more antimated about a result in a competition we donít even usually compete in than you did about many of the wins the senior team have had in the last 12 months. McStay losing seems to bring you more joy than Roscommon winning.

What do the Mayo lads make of this behaviour by Prenty and the Mayo minor management?

https://www.leitrimobserver.ie/news/gaelic-games/311159/leitrim-manager-blasts-mayo-and-connacht-council-over-u17-game.html#.Wuo-A_06PI4.twitter

Quote
And the Leitrim manager was particularly annoyed with a reported remark from the Mayo management team when they were approached to see if an accommodation could be reached - "Then Mayo were approached to see if they would do us a favour and seemingly the comment that came back from the Mayo management was that they were just using it as a training session, a warm-up to the Roscommon game next week."

Jesus.
