I think you've prettty much hit the nail on the head there with your summation of both Int and Junior Championships, but i think it might be a year or two too soon for the Crans in the senior. Bacon i think your being a bit generous with Kilclief and Ballyvarleys odds, Jimmy O' Reilly left kilclief there a while back which is saying something when he stuck with us (ballela) for the duration of last season even though the majority of training seasons had only 8-12 players. Ballyvarley are complete rank outsiders, I would put them at a generous 16/1 to beat ballygalget never mind win the competition(and thats not even considering parochial bias :P).

If Drumgath are in Division 3 how are they playing in ther senior championship?  Im guessing they might have won the intermediate recently, but could someone clarify this?

They won it last year. Major upset when they beat Attical in the final.

Loughinisland a good outside bet for SFC.  Take a flyer on Aughlasnafin for Junior

I'll eat my hat if Aughlisnafin win a game never mind the JFC!

Myself and Bridgegael picked Shamrocks for the IHC so we can't get a full set.

Saturday 4th August   6.30pm   Port An Pheire (Portaferry)   v   Baile Mhic Uileagoid (Ballygalget)   Ballycran   D Caughey
Sunday 5th August   2pm   Caislean an Mhuillin (Castlewellan)   v   Bredach (Bredagh)   Kilclief   C Coulter
Sunday 5th August   2pm   Baile Crann (Ballycran)   v   Rinn Mhic Giolla Rua (Warrenpoint)   Downpatrick   N Morgan
Tuesday 7th August   7.30pm   Cluain Daimh (Clonduff)   v   Baile Aileach (Ballela)   Liatroim   K McGuinness


Junior Hurling this weekend.
Castlewellan have prepared well after a poor start to the league and I think they'll take Bredagh by 3 points. Bredagh play like individuals whereas Castlewellan at full strenght are a team. Div 1 experience is priceless at this level.

Ballycran to beat the Point by 10. Warrenpoint have done great work at underage and their time will come. But not this year.

Ballela are considedered by all to be favorites but I think they will struggle to field a strong team. McCambridge & Murphy are away on holidays because they were told the match was fixed for last night. They are missing others too. Clonduff played very well earlier in the leage and I predict an upset - Clonduff to win.

Portaferry will beat Ballygalget on Saturday in Ballycran but neither will win the championship. Potaferry's IHC team haven't played yet and Growler picked a strong team for Ballygalget. I have to go for the Ports in this game but weather on not they can win the championship I don't know.

Colonel - I'd be very surprised if Clonduff beat Ballela, even if they are missing a few. It's Ballela for me by 7/8 pts.
I agree that Ballycran will beat Warrenpoint but not by much.

Probably Portaferry in the ards match for the reasons you point out. I hope to get down to this one on Saturday evening.

Bredagh/Castlewellan is hard to call. Bredagh beat a weakened Castlewellan in the league but this game will be much closer. Bredagh by 2 points.

The Ballela match is in Liatroim on Sunday with a time tba, more than likely 2pm. Myself & the two aforementioned names are away on holidays, althought the other two may have been dropped anyway. We have exactly 15 players. If someone could stick the score up it would be appreciated.

Is the Ballela/Clonduff match on Sunday? I thought it was moved to Tuesday but I see Liatroim hurlers are at home on Tuesday night.

Ballela will beat Clonduff well no matter when it's played, so long as they field and don't suffer any injuries.

Castlewellan will beat Bredagh who haven't been that convincing recently. They really did let it slip last year.

Ballycran will cruise passed Warrenpoint and I take Ballygalget to beat Portaferry.
