I think cushendall may beat rossa and clooney beat creggan but that aside I would mainly agree.

Glenarm struggled a bit with rasharkin so not sure if they will win by as much as people think but they'd definitely be favourites too.

Just checked and Larne beat Ardoyne by a bit on the league so probably be the favourites. They won at this level a few years ago so probably favourites.

I kind of hope cushendun spring a surprise as it'd be good to see someone like them come through at that level.

Glenarm have a greater scoring threat who, if they get going will be hard to stop.
Ardoyne were badly annoyed at losing that last game so I predict OB will be looking to put it right.
Cushendun have thrown the fear of losing away at long last and their young lads are growing in to themselves, look a better balanced team to me

Is this a bit fishy?

Few factors in play that favoured Carey but safe to say there wouldn’t have been 43 points in it if it was played on Gorts home pitch when it was originally due to be played.

Think I posted it on the football thread, the groups served a purpose last year but for the love of god please can we go back to straight knock out next year, groups served no purpose this year below senior.

100% right, at least teams like glenariffe wont be relaying on others to see if they continue in the championship or not. Now they are unbeaten but still out of the competition.

Unbeaten but 3 draws out of 5, they only won the “easy” games.

The Down Div1 Feile between ourselves, Bredagh and Portaferry round robin ended up with three drawn games and we ended up getting put out on a rule where "least scores conceded" was used. We'd scored the most but obviously conceded the most.

It had never been used in Down before and TBH we weren't even informed it was to be used before the competition began as Down competition rules normally state "most scores for".

Cushendun well beat Carey in Division 2 final so that game could go either way.

Interesting pretty much everyone backs Rossa. Would they be bookies favourite? IIRC McManus played very little part in that game so unless injured could be a different game...

keep her low this half

No doubt about it he is their "El Cid". All the same Rossa look in good shape to keep the Ruairis busy and are looking more like finalists for me.
