Player watch


#21

I would really like to know how good Con is on the big stage. I think he is the Alan Cadogen / Shane O’Donnell class but unfortunately we will probably not know as dual players are a no-go now and he will stick with the big ball.


#22

I think he’s better then those two to be honest. He would be better st winning his own ball. I always thought O Donnell just lived off loose ball, although he did prove me wrong a bit this year.

When we played an exceptional Waterford minor team in the AI qf in O Callaghans minor year - Waterford were deserved winners as they had the best 15. But we had the best two on the field in I Callaghan and Mc Bride


#23

Who caught the eye today lads? How did McHugh fair for Na Fianna?

Had a quick glance at the line ups, died all teams line out as selected? Seemed to be a lot of lads either on the bench or abscent. Paul Ryan Peter Kelly Conor McCormack. AJ Murphy Sean mclelland off the top of my head, Ryan ODwyer another


#24

Paul winters display in the last round was the standout for me . I didn’t see any player in Parnell today outside current county players who’d add anything


#25

McHugh was poor enough today


#26

AJ won’t play ball this side of the new year and Ryan O’Dwyer out with a quad,


#27

McClelland no longer hurling at all believe it or not. Ryan came on for second half and looked sharp.


#28

Didn’t know McClelland had given up, always liked him as player, very strong. How old is he @Rico ?


#29

He is 23 - may come back next year.


#30

That’s why it’s such a shame he got the line today, could’ve got brigids over the line.

Fergal Whitley got another 4 from on play, seems in Good form.


#31

Brilliant minor but no application at senior level unfortunately


#32

Hopefully


#33

Thems the breaks in an amateur sport, some lads will just lose interest or change priorities as they get older.


#34

Very true…watching Ger Dodrill and Kevin Byrne this season you’d wonder how good they might have been had they been in a position to fully commit.


#35

Dodrill real loss to Dubs, would love to see him out, great reader of the game and strong at winning ball.


#36

Agree. Dodrill a cracking hurler. Pity really.


#37

What age is he now?


#38

Don’t know. @Sam_11 how old is Ger now?


#39

25 this year. Should be given a chance by the next management IMO


#40

Has been asked out before hasn’t he?
