On head to heads - we'll lose out v Mayowestros,  we'll win out v Galway- the very opposite to Sligo!
Hopefully Sligo and Ros to make the cut and  one of the big lads miss out.

Leading to a change of format next year no doubt ::)

Why would it?


Likely a reference to when a round robin was introduced in 2007 and after initially agreeing to it, Galway and Mayo opted out leaving Ros/Sligo and Leitrim playing a round robin for the benefit of playing Galway and Mayo in semis. Then after Ros dished a couple of hammerings to the big boys, Mayo and Galway complained about going into games cold. The system was then scrapped.

Ah right. Well I hope the round robin is here to stay for underage games anyway. Better development for all that way.

Definitely itís a killer for lads to have one game - lose it and thatís their year over.

Decent 1st halves by Leitrim in each game but seem to fade badly in every 2nd half they play.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Great start to the weekend with yet another victory at minor level over Mayo by 2-12 to 0-11.
Hopefully the U20s and the Seniors to come on Saturday and Sunday continue in the same vein, hup Galway.

So we're all on 4 points except Leitrim.
Rhubarbs have all their games played.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Great result for our lads. They should account for Leitrim next week to confirm their progress to at least a semi final.
A Sligo win would see Mayo still in it - any other result and they are out.

4 teams on 4 pts - its head to head as said

Sligo are guarnteed a Semi final place now because Mayo can't get beyond 4pts and Sligo have the head to head.

Galway will beat Leitrim so they will be on 6pts next week, if Sligo beat Roscommon, Galway go to Connacht final. If Roscommon beat Sligo they get into Connacht final.

If we beat Roscommon we play Mayo in the Semi final with Galway in final.
If we lose we play Galway in the semi final with Roscommon in final.

We have it in us to beat either mayo or galway in the semis.

Am I correct?

That's correct. Don't forget about a draw between Sligo,Roscommon which would mean the same teams play again in the semi final and Galway into the final.
