Antrim v Westmeath

(Oldest Posts First)

I believe Antrim, as a county suffer from a lack of ball winning forwards, target men who will win ball and get you some scores. I would struggle to identify 4 players in the county who can do this consistently, and we only have two of them in the panel today. I think we could learn from Derry last week. If we isolated Niblock and Brady up front and hit them with good low early ball then they will have a much better chance of scoring than trying to work through a blanket defence. However this will meaning pulling others, including Cunningham back. Cunningham is a great free taker but is poor at winning ball. So let him take his marker out with him and leave it two on two. Also isolating the forward line would allow us to use our strengths, which is a very mobile half back line. It would allow them to break and use their pace better.

Westmeath by 5. Bit of a wild team selection, wouldn't know half the lads. Half forward line has no ball winners. Long summer ahead.
