    Both hurling semi finals, followed by deferred showing of the rugby league :-)

    great idea imo and adds a bit of an incentive for all teams in the semis now

    I knw it could be a dead atmosphere inside a half empty Croke Park but its still a final there and thats were every GAA wants too be

    could easily be a repeat of the 2018 All Ireland final between Limerick and Galway

    Caught him on the chin. Certain red. Dublin players didn't pressure the ref so he took the easy option.

    Dublin are certainly in this game from what I saw of the first half. I can see Waterford bearing Galway later on.

    Dublin 0-11 limerick 0-13 49 mins gone.

    You get the feeling Dublin lost it in the lapse between the red that wasn't and half time.

    (Well they were never winning it, but you know what I mean).

    Dublin always seem to miss handy frees.

    Limerick 1-18 Dublin 0-12 62 minutes gone. Poor goal for Dublin to give away.

    Aimless ball into the forwards have hurt Dublin this half. Well in the game up until the 55 minute mark. Game over now though.

    For such a finicky ref he certainly took the easy option on the red card offense. Morrissey himself knew he was in big trouble after making that tackle.

    Baffled as to why the Dublin players didn't come in and create a scene. Its horrible to watch but no one can deny putting pressure on the officials doesn't work.

    Dublin got a couple of handy frees in the first half and immediately the Limerick players (and crowd) were onto him by contrast. He soon evened it up. It works.

    Good effort by the Dubs, they should be happy enough with that outing, very competitive for most of it. Impressed with Sutcliffe. Their puckouts need work badly though, they gave up a few handy points today. Better distribution into the forwards need as well. Leinster will be interesting this year.

    Oh it works alright but like you I hate to see it. Still, it was on the ref to make the right call. Morrissey lined him up and absolutely cleaned him out of it with a frontal shoulder to the chest/head area.

    Limerick got a few handy frees towards the end as well but over the ref was grand for both teams. He just got the biggest call of the game wrong IMO.

    Bit of a dead game so far, at least the first game had a few niggly challenges to get the crowd going


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,025 ✭✭✭zetecescort


    Much needed Waterford goal should liven things up a bit


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,041 ✭✭✭C__MC


    I hate the Allianz hurling league, roll on the championship

    Games are so dead - you can see managers don’t give a toss about this competition

    Win or lose, it’s only the league

    Gleeson really is a tramp. Dropping the knees on the Galway 4s neck.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,025 ✭✭✭zetecescort


    level with 15 to go, Waterford down to 14
