I’m not disagreeing although it may seem like I’m about to.  The difficulty comes though with rules that are never strictly adhered to. The too close on free kick rules seems to never be applied correctly.  In fact most I speak to don’t even know what the precise rule is. Soloing a free kick before taking it is another. Strict compliance with the four step rule or spot of the foul etc etc. If you are going to enforce rules like the gum shield one, when other referees don’t, as was done here you open yourself up to criticism as to why you are cherry picking certain rules. If you laud a ref for strict adherence to the rules you have to criticise him if he allows a free as much as one inch away from the spot of the foul.

Either common sense has to be applied and we accept that will lead to a certain amount of inconsistency or strict adherence to the rules is the ideal in which case I’d imagine we will have a very boring game very quickly. Either way the referee will be liable for criticism. It’s a thankless task which is neigh on impossible in the modern game. I still think a second referee in inter county games would assist immensely.

Tour de force by Robert Finnerty here. He must have 1-5 or 1-6 from play as well as a few frees.

NUIG miss a very scoreable free to take the game to extra time. UCC win by a point. Great game.

Cracking game - nothing between two very good teams. Finnerty is a quality footballer.

Only watched the second half so missed most of Finnerty's scores, think he only got on the ball once during the half and got a brilliant score from it. I never thought he'd be good enough at the very top level but he appears to have kicked on a level, he's bound to get some game time during the league. I like the look of the younger O'Laoi too, think he can kick on again this year.

Finnerity was in good form but I thought the UCC backs marking him were fairly poor in the first half - don't know who was marking him initially but Flood from Meath was switched on to him early enough and had an absolute nightmare on him in the first half - gave him a world of space throughout - the worst being leaving him in absolute acres of space for the goal. Finnerity took advantage and got some tasty scores but it was up against a very poor level of defending for Sigerson never mind inter-county in my opinion. I think this year's league might be a bit soon for him yet.

UCC are favorites with the bookies but I think they could be in a bit of bother unless they tighten up at the back.

DCU that good or Queens that bad? Queens biggest ever loss in the Sigerson cup overtaking their 16 point loss to UCC in 1947.

DCU 7-14 Queens 0-9
Letterkenny IT 1-14 IT Sligo 1-8

St Mary's v UCD gone to extra time current score UCD 1-10 St Mary's 2-4

UCD won 2-10 to 2-6.


Big shock in this evening match. IT Carlow 3-9
UCC 0-14

Not surprised they conceded goals based on the NUIG game - as I posted above they just didn't look secure at the back.

Why does this get such poor publicity in our media, papers etc., can't find any match reports anywhere. I'd like to know how some of my county / club men did.
