I'd say Castletown will be kicking their lips at playing their rivals Camross, who aren't hurling well so far. Borris-Kilcottom will take care of Ballinakill fairly easily I'd imagine.

The real championship probably won't start until the semi-final stage though.

This is what I meant by shadow boxing. I believe that you will see a different Camross by the semis. Not that they weren't trying against C/B or B/K but they were a mile away from the intensity they normally show. Can't see Castletown getting anywhere near them in the quarters.

How do the semi draws work? I assume it has to be an open draw if Camross and B/K prevail as both have played Ballacolla already?
No Zane, no party.

Camross intermediates were decent yesterday against Clough Ballacolla which was the most entertaining game Iíd say over the weekend. Oisin Bennett would be pushing to be involved with seniors but not till after intermediate final. Think he got about 2:4 from play and got on savage amount of ball. Matthew Collier surely will go up aswell once thatís over. Been very decent for the games Iíve seen to date.

this is a great championship and it is wide open. camross,b/k, c/b and r/e all have a chance and its hard to call and castletown have a good young team coming through again but i think its a bit early for them this year. ballinakill are safe but i cant see them upsetting the odds

Apparently well-ahead of schedule.
I'd be hopeful that he'll be fit to take some part.

No sign of Zane but signs of progress for Camross.
They were stunned in the first half but utterly dominant in the second. To be fair to the Camross management, they have improved noticeably in the second half of games against BK, Abbeyleix and now Castletown. That'll stand them in good stead in a semi-final where they may go in as slight outsiders, especially if they draw Rathdowney/Errill.

Can only see a pretty comfortable BK win tomorrow. I can't see how Ballinakill will have the legs in defence to live with the BK forwards.

Don't really know what happened Castletown in the second half - fumbling, over-hit passes, poor decisions. Didn't score for something like the last 15 mins. Lighter and younger than Camross, who dominated the physical stakes in the second half.
Stapleton not too whistle-happy, which I'd consider a good thing, even if a few fouls were missed. Much rather it that way than the other.

Young team thatíll surely kick on in a few years. Portlaoise back down to senior B again. Horrible conditions in Colt. Abbeyleix got the goals at the right time. Just about deserved the win. Yo yo ing up and down frustrating to see where Portlaoise will go next.

Sad to see Portlaoise dropping down again. In the absence of tommy and Healy no leaders showed.
I fear for them going forward.
With the exception of the u15s their competing at B level underage so the future is not promising.

Portlaoise at Juvenile level arenít even competitive in the B in most age grades bar minor,didnít even bother to enter a Feile team this year.

Said it before and will say it again,Juvenile hurling in Portlaoise is in crisis.
