Replying To lilywhite1:  "Ah realdub, ye're sure to win it soon, the most coveted trophy for the Dubs to win. Although with the new resurgant Meath ye will find it hard to beat Meath in the O'Byrne Cup."
Ah well, what's another year :D Jack McCaffrey as class tonight, happy days!

Good display by the second string team tonight tobin lenihan mquilan and especially Bobby o brien played well. Really impressed with the tackling too which needed improvement.

Good to see the Dublin 3rd string team beat Wexford away today.

If nothing else, an extra game against an improving Kildare outfit will hopefully bring our young lads on a bit.
And you never know, it might even give Jim Gavin something to think about before he finalises his squad for this season.

Went to the Game between Laois and Meath last saturday night and what a treat I got for my tenner ..

Very good game played in decent underfoot conditions in Jan.

It had everything superb scores by both sides nice hits a couple of goals a very controversial penalty award and a big crowd at a small ground which created a great atmosphere .

Laois were very unlucky not to win and probably out played meath for 50 minutes of the game after Meath got off to a flyer .

A soft late penalty award allowed th royals to sneak a point ahead but there was still time for Colm begley to sing over a wonder score near the end.

Meath had a lot of big guns on show Cillian O'Sullivan Keogan, Menton, Tobin,and Reilly all played well especially in the first half.

Laois had some good showings of their own in Darren Strong Kevin Meaney and their talisman Donie Kingston who gave and Exibition.

Colm Begley was the best player on show on his home patch I suppose he had to rise to the occasion and he certainly did!

Hudson and Connor Mchugh doing themselves no harm at all. Should be a good test for them Vs Kildare.

Good to see our 4th string team draw with laois away and secure our place in the semis. Home fixture against rivals louth. Gives us something exciting even if it's only January.

More importantly its good for some of those lads to be giving Andy a selection headache.

4th string??

We had a mix. Reilly,Keoghan,Menton,O'Sullivan,Lenihan,Burke all played. 6 players likely to start in the league along with probably one or two others..

4th string eh. Crazy statement. If a Meath fan is saying Reilly, Menton, Keoghan, Burke and O'Sullivan are 4th string then he don't know a lot about football.

Ziggy is correct - a mix.


And a new super young goalie as well. ;o)

6 probable starters and 9 newbies , but with Menton it would make it about 66% unknowns not a bad effort, that been said I can see a few of those unknowns becoming known this year.
