The sooner Connacht gets competitive again the better.
People on here celebrating 3/4 consecutive titles. As it stands now a Connacht medal holds the same value as a McGrath Cup medal would for Kerry/Cork.
Your totally oblivious to what winning a provincial championship means in this day and age.
For serious teams winning their province is essential for two reasons.
1. It means that you know exactly when and where you will be playing your next game and you can prepare accordingly.
2. It means you avoid the other big guns in the competition at the QF stage.
Put it this way, do you think Monaghan would have preferred to play Dublin or Armagh in the QF this year?
Since 2011 only one provincial champion has lost a QF.
That's not a coincidence
