Now for the main course this weekend. Most of the money seems to be going on Clare and i cant really see why. Waterford have played division 1 for the last number of years while we were in B division and the Clare team will most likely have players with very little championship experience.
I'm hearing the team is along the lines of:
Donovan Dillon Cooney
Bugler J.Mac O'Connor
Conlon Lynch Clancy
McGrath Ryan Cunningham.
A lot of talk about Markham for O'Connor, Glynn for Cooney and that Tony Kelly will be on the bench.
Sean collins is out with hamstring apparently and Cunningham will start.
Say it will be a very close game with us coming out on top by 2 or 3 points.
Full back line Cooney needs to be kept away from pacey forwards as his serious weak link.
Donovan very solid
Dillon very solid all year so far, have doubts could be destroyed with fast ball.
That half back line isn't up to much to be honest , NOC should be in it and not midfield , J Mac is too slow and one sided,
as above possibly play C.Ryan some to pick up some breaking ball
half forward line not up to much lynch solid useless not even rated by his own club men 7 years on panel never done a thing, Clancy rubbish also
Conlon needs to actually fight for ball and win it possibly best player in this line.
Full forward line ok McGrath serious hurler, awfull awkward style of taking frees and misses when under any bit of pressure, Are we over dependent on him?? Ryan won't score ere so should be played out field , Cunningham deserves a chance
