Has there been any retirements/any new faces in the Down squad for this year? Hopefully Darren O'Hagan is back, will need full squad a available to even compete in the league and give Donegal a game a bit of a game this year.

I like this idea and saves sorting out challenge matches and unnecessary travel.

Out in front itís probably a good competition for smaller clubs but the bigger clubs will give out some hammerings
Our group we will have 3 dead rubbers against the 3 mourn clubs Longstone Ballymartin and Attical
Word is we will enter our second string team

Ryan Johnson isnt in panel. Shelan concentrating o  U20s. All a cording to the irish news

Down suffered a big defeat at the hands of Tyrone last week in Newry

Team
Burns
Murdock
McGovern
Collins
Laverty
Flynn
McEvoy
Middleton
Poland
Mooney
Devlin
Guiness
Quinn
McCrickard
Doherty


Decent team that by the looks of it those lads would be fighting for a starting place next week with this group likely to return
Darren O H
Barry O H
Kevin McK
Peter F
Liam K
James G
Benny McA
Conor G


Strong team if above lads come into the team

Sweet f**k, has that Tyrone man a clue putting out a team like that so close to the start of the league?  He has been taking a serious dough from Down over the last 2 years and he obviously knows nothing about his players. Paddy Murdock is a No.3, Johnny Flynn is not a No. 6. Poland is not a county midfielder. Mooney and Guinness need to be coming onto the ball. Devlin is? Who is going to score with that forward line apart from Quinn in that team? Apart from Kerr and Darren O'Hagan in the subs there is not much else to inspire me. Just throw the towel in now Tally.
