Heard Niall Dunne has injured his cruciate, if this is true will be a massive loss for kinsella & co.

I heard young Dunne got injured playing a practice match on the Sunday after the u20 final. The chap was outstanding that night but practically had to be carried off afterwards. Surely the Port and Courtwood/Emo lads could have been given the weekend off. He’s no good to Laois now and a huge loss to his club. There’s no advantage in having county men anymore for clubs

Wasn't too far off in the end!

Neil Keane and Barry Howlin the two newcomers I see.
Very close call between Lacey and Brophy for wing back spot but best of luck to the lads this evening

Sat here in the car completely demoralised. In terms of work rate, physicality and technical ability, we are miles off. Not just at this grade, but in general. Same failings as at Senior. Kicking the ball out, losing it and conceding. Tackling U12 level. Handling and basic skills just nowhere near good enough. A good Dublin team no doubt, but we just can't compete with that. A different level.

Got off to a great start and ran through dublin but they started to foul and drag back from around 50 yards out and while the ball was dead just flooded players back and broke down laois attacks by weight of numbers. The dublin break at speed was devastating and left our defenders exposed 1 on 1 giving up scoring oppertunities in acres of space  young O Flynn was pulled and dragged every time he attempted to get forward and the ref allowed this systematic fouling on laois players without any cards shown This is the Dublin system and as long as they keep getting away with it theyll stay doing it
