2018 NHL1B Round 4 - Dublin v Galway: Parnell Park, Sun 25 Feb 14:00


#262

Was Rushe not already on at that stage?


#263

No he came in soon after!


#264

The other McBride also came through the whole DCU game and did well (one monster catch). Himself, Conroy and Boland would make a big change to the Dublin team. Couple that with the Cuala lads and we would be starting to motor.


#265

Cheers… It would have been very interesting to see a half back line of Barrett, Crummy and Rushe - we would be ok with height anyway!


#266

McBride is a great bit of stuff.


#267

Our intensity today was very good! Some bogus calls by referee when Galway players clearly charged with the ball and he gave free against us! One of their points came from a throw ball to a free player!


#268

Didn’t see the last two games so can’t comment about any improvement from those two.
However, after about 65 minutes or so we had scored 2 points from play and both of them were by the midfielders. The starting forwards got us 1-1 from play today.
There is the main problem and has been so for some time as well now.


#269

We also need to practice penalties! Clearly not doing this and it will cost us later in the year!


#270

Correction 1-02. But yea. Point stands.Although realistically probably only 1 or 2 of those will be starting come the summer.


#271

I’d say we’ve a 10% conversion rate or less.


#272

Any top free taker should be scoring a goal one on one from 20 meters!


#273

Was it v Galway a few seasons ago in Tullamore we missed 3 penalties?


#274

I’ve already been warning the kids that if they misbehave I’ll bring them to the Laois match.


#275

dubintip I’m ringing Childline! :grinning:


#276

Didn’t make it to the match today but Dublin will beat Laois by at least 12 points


#277

Sitting right in front of rushe when he got a right smack into the ribs. Never recovered after it.


#278

We will beat Laois well that I have no doubt.


#279

Beat them probably. Beat them well I’m not so sure!


#280

Offaly found it tough going vs laois. are Dublin any further on?


#281

We were at ground zero after last week. We might still be. But credit where it’s due, the lads were excellent today. Crummy man of the match for us, P Mannion for them.

Thought Paddy Smyth was outstanding in the corner for us, only had one slip at the end where his man nipped in for a score. Someone said earlier he’s only 19? He’ll be some operator down the track if that’s true.

We gave as good as we got in most areas. Danny shipped a lot of flak throughout but kept going. His touch is different class.

Big turning point in second half I felt. A Galway player milled one of our backs over the sideline with a late hit. No free and line ball to Galway. Came back to a Galway player who put it high and wide and the umpires gave it. Was 2 in it at that stage, and Galway goaled just afterwards unless I’m mistaken?
