Dublin U17 Hurling 2018


#486

I believe all but 2 players were asked to choose one or the other!!


#487

Who on the football team is a good hurler?


#488

Liam Dunne


#489

Ah shite, is he a on the football panel as well.


#490

I think Murray is as well, he’s also u16, another Knock man.


#491

I didn’t think there was a no dual player rule this year. As said above, Swan is already on both.


#492

I was kind of hoping Dunne might be the solution to free taking issues at u21 level for the next few years.


#493

Rule or not, some players were actively encouraged to choose one over the other


#494

I was talking to a parent of a player who was on both earlier and was asked to make a call on which he was to stay with. He did and a couple of weeks later that panel was culled and he dropped!!! Ended up on neither panel!!

:roll_eyes::grimacing:


#496

Heard the same story.

There is an argument that we really don’t manage our resources to the optimum at minor.


#497

Valid enough point but having said that Dublin are the greatest football team the GAA has ever seen.


#498

I seem to remember saying this a year ago and being told I was factually wrong!!! I’m glad you accept it now.


#499

Really? Surprised at that. Unless you’re misunderstanding me. I don’t mean lads should be playing both. I mean no lad should be sitting on the bench in one code who should start in the other. I’ve always held that. Which is why I’m surprised I would have said otherwise. That’s what I mean by optimizing resources.


#500

That would never happen at Senior level …


#501

Yea, he didn’t make the bench.


#502

Murray is under 16 and on both. Very skilful hurler that chap.


#503

Tough game this one, a win here would be great for the confidence, it was really the goals that kept us in it the last day, will need a good few more scores to beat this kilkenny team.


#504

Kilkenny seemed to struggle a bit against Offaly the last day though.


#505

How had Offaly done previously?
