FT Laois 0-12 Carlow 0-8
I get all the ‘have to play to your strengths’ etc but Carlow were shocking. Had a real chance today but didn’t have the balls to go for it. I hope they never get drawn against Fermanagh …
They kicked 3 pts from play in total. Enough said really.
Agree. Laois were hardly top class opponents either. They had one or two who could get forward but lacked support. They won t get a better chance of a Leinster final appearance.
Carlow got exactly what they deserved out of that game. . . . . Nothin
