Its a pointless way of looking at it Hound, What do you expect us to lose or draw on purpose. We have momentum, we have beaten them before, despite what blowitupref says I think we will be sharper given there lay off. Galway beat them there, so why cant we.

We are delighted to be in the semi final, this was the only way we could get a home final if fixtures stay the way we think.
Ah, I know, you have to go out to win every game. No doubt.  But still...!

Confirmed tonight that the Minor Semi-Final; Mayo v Sligo next Wednesday 26th June will be played in MacHale Park. Where is the reward for finishing 2nd in the group?

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Did anyone really believe that the decision would go Sligos way.

Seems unfair alright that 2nd isn't rewarded with a home game

I presumed with Sligonians post yesterday that a change was to be made on where these knock out games would be played but as it turns out and i stated last week only a defeat to Roscommon would have given Sligo home advantage for the semi final. On the plus side for Sligo should they win that semi final they will have home advantage for final v Galway.

Galway will have home advantage if they play Mayo in the final.

Connacht Council looking after the same county as it somehow always does.

Roscommon U20 team to play Leitrim on Wednesday night.

Rob Kearney (Boyle)
Enda Killoran (Elphin)
Evan Flynn (Tulsk)
Robbie Dolan (St Brigids)
Michael Conroy (Castlerea)
Niall Higgins (Elphin)
Gerry Galvin (Tulsk)
Patrick Fannon (St Josephs)
Padraig Halpin (St Barrys)
Daire Keenan (St Dominics)
Ronan Dowd (Creggs)
Thomas O'Rourke (Tulsk)
Brian Derwin (St Brigids)
Paul Carey (Padraig Pearses)
Dylan Ruane (Michael Glaveys)

A surprise to see such a lack of St Brigids starters. They won the last two Connacht club minor titles and only 2 of the Roscommon U17 All Ireland finalist team of 2017 is starting this match.

Where the rest of the 17's from 2017? I'd have thought there would be at least 7 or 8 of them involved.

Would have to wonder alright. I also see none of the Roscommon CBS team that won the B All Ireland in April are starting either.

Mayo v Sligo tonight too. I'd go but for the bales that will have to be brought in.

Hadn't Sligo a decent Minor (u18) team in 2017?
