how ya lads great thread. just joined. like betting on the clubs games aswell. from waterford so heres my opinion about this weekends senior matches.
vs De la salle, there evens for this and i fancy the county champs here by a few points, DLS started off the championship with a defeat to ballyduff upper,then went on to beat abbeyside and stradbally fairly easily, the gunners come into this game on the back of a defeat in the last round to bduff upper aswell,having won there 1st match. with only one win under there belts theyl been keen for the victory as they need 2 wins from remainin 3 matches to be sure of qualifying.
heres a report from there last match, reckon with all the missing players back theyl be strong and come out on top. most should be back as last round was 6 weeks ago now,, havent herd any team news on injuries yet, will keep ya posted.
vs Ballyduff Lower 10/11. Dungarvan are real value here, they were 11/8 on pp yeastrday and i tink theyl shorten again before sunday, its a must win for both, the 2 havent won so far and the loser will almost for sure go into the relegation final, since promotion dungarvan have been impressive,but in there last match they were missing a host of players and got absolutley hammered by in form Passge, Ballyduff Lwr have been poor all year with 6 or 7 of last years team gone through emigration etc, they havent the quality and had to concede a walkover in there 2nd round match vs Mount Sion, they havent won league match either, with dungarvan posting big tallys in a few of there matches, they have a young team with alot of talent in there ranks, 6 or 7 of the starting team will be contesting the under 21A county final vs Ballygunner next week aswell. this will be a tough game and u couldnt write off bduff lower, but it would be a surprise if dungarvan didnt win this 1
Dungarvan by 4-5 points
to sum up the other games, abbeyside @1/3 should be beating a poor stradbally team that rely heavily on brick walsh and forward shane ahearne.but abbeyside themselves havnt been great this year in truth.
Id fancy Mount Sion 1/2 to beat passage, sion havent won the county title in a few years and if they have ambitions of it this year should be winning this,the most succesful club in waterford by a mile but dipped in recent years.with tony browne Ken mcgrath still around they wont be far off, Eoin kelly formerly of sion going back to former club aswell will make things interesting.
Tallow Lismore will be close, local derby, Lismore need to win, if dan and co are on form i think thry might just
Bduff Upper vs Fourmilewater, the upper are in sum form this year and are one of the favs for the title, should be winning this 1, but 4mile are tough and i think itl be a close 1
