    Kicks off on the 25th/26th Jan 2020

    Am I right in saying this is the new format for division 1

    Top teams in each group go into the semi finals

    QFs- 2nd 1A vs 3rd 1B and 3rd 1A vs 2nd 1B

    Relegation is 6th 1A vs 6th 1B with the 2A winner replacing the loser in 2021
    Sounds about right to me

    Kicks off next weekend

    Hard to call a winner in division 1 with the way managers use the league nowadays with it being a less important priority. A few new managers will want to hit the ground running but may still be getting used to there new surroundings

    I think Wexford will win it cause Davy is a lunatic and goes for everything.

    Don't think Davy will aim for it. Didn't aim for it last year. Cork will need to hit the ground runnning

    Waterford showed last year a good league run means **** all when you have a disaster of a championship

    Saying that I would like a few wins this year especially a victory against Limerick up in the Gaelic grounds which has been a graveyard for Waterford down the years


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,494 ✭✭✭ Billy Ocean


    Think Limerick could retain they're title this year

    Limerick surprisingly off the pace so far down in thurles. If you can stop limerick with the short passing and running out of defence they struggle and I think that's what tipp have tried to do. Decent enough game so far with the referee being finicky.

    Some comeback in second half by limerick


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,941 ✭✭✭✭ Mantis Toboggan


    Limerick upped it big time in the second half and tipps work rate dropped off. Short puck outs killed both teams. Good work out for both teams.

    It does from a distance but there’s some amount of divots on the close up shots.

    Baffling as to why he was taken off. Looked like a tactical change. As a Corkman I was happy to see him taken off. Thought he was playing very well
