What does bolter mean ?

A bastardised term from thugby, and specifically the Lions, to signify a player who will come from nowhere to make the starting 15.

Example in GAA terms, Munnelly in 2003.

I’m thinking the same.

It was a good league. It was an 8 out 10 league. We got promoted which was brilliant and we looked at in or around 30 players. We might have unearthed a couple of good ones in O’Flynn and Scully. We also got to see the likes of Campion, Byrne, Barry and Lowry, who all have potential.

Yes, Saturday was disappointing but I still think we can take them in Tullamore in 6 weeks’ time.

Overall, we’re a world away from where we were under Creedon and Lillis.

Westmeath are a small bit ahead of us at the moment, but a lot can happen in 7 weeks before championship. They really are around our level, and there was only a kick of a ball in it in both of our games. Whoever makes the most progress and positive adjustments in those 7 weeks will win in Late May. As far as I'm concerned, 2019 has already been a successful year for Laois football, no matter what happens in the championship. Lads have short term memories sometimes - we've seen good performances in a lot of games against better opposition this year but consistency is lacking. We have a lot to work on, but this is where we're at. We're about mid to low level division 2 standard. If we can be competitive with other teams around our level (which we are) and beat the lower teams, that's all we can ask for currently, and that's what we're getting. Sugrue and co are getting a lot out of these players and I'm delighted that's happening. I'm also delighted with the attitude the players and management are showing post league final. They're not happy with it and are very hungry to improve.

A great championship for us would be : Beat Westmeath; be competitive against Meath; 2 / 3 qualifier games.

Thugby
. If you don't already, you should definitely start commenting on The Journal's sports articles. Feathers would be ruffled.

We won't see another Ross. There was a time when he couldn't even make the Arles U14 team. Luckily for him and Laois football that man hasn't known anything other than Ballygowen. Unreal servant.

Should probably start a new thread for this, but, (like Micko and John Sugrue) hopefully this Kerry man can prove a success in Laois too...
