Yeah, I thought he looked good in the first game against Westmeath, but he subsequently fell out of favour for some reason. Seems to have made an impact when brought on on Saturday.

Not at all surprised to see Offaly beaten by Kildare. I assume that means next year Laois and Offaly will be in tier 2, and Kildare in tier 1?

I reckon Kildare will do better than Laois or Offaly v the big guns. Bigger, physically more advanced and definitely not short on confidence.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

How come we beat them earlier on this year then? They might well be at our level but a pretty sweeping statement to say they're better than Laois.

Laois beat Kildare this year. Also, I can't ever recall any of these squads losing to Kildare up along.

What a silly comment, teams go further than other teams because of the draw they get more often or not- Id of said our Minors would of beaten Offaly in normal time but who knows. The Minor Hurlers have put in some very good performances and should be proud of themselves.

Only a puck of a ball between ourselves and Kildare at minor level this year

Exactly. One solitary point, and Laois only came from behind late on to just get over the line.

I wonder will Kildare be able to sustain it?

This 'who is better' debate is pointless. It looks like Laois, Offaly and Kildare are of a similar standard. Laois were competitive and a little unlucky v Wexford do perhaps kildare have stepped up (this year anyway). Carlow did similar for a few years in the 00s and have made a solid base from these players. A minor team similar to this years for Laois every year would be a very solid base for a future Laois senior teams.
