Clan na Gael and Ballivor are the two standout teams for me. One of them will win the thing out. Carnaross are p**s poor this year.

Would not rule out Ultans or Vincent's. Vincent's could take Clan na nGael in next round.

Agree and would add are 3 clubs that really should not be junior given their populations and catchment areas.

Add Vincent's to that list. They just beat Clann na nGael and were finalists last year remember. Play Ultans this weekend in Tailteann Cup final so should learn where each team is after that.

Good call on them beating Clann na Gael! It's true that they're going very under the radar. What has changed with them? Serious improvement over the years.

Their underage setup with Curraha seems to be doing well and producing alot of players. They appear to be very fit, organised and well coached with a good blend of youth and experience. While they have a talented young team, it maybe just a year or two too early for Clann na nGael. Would not rule out Summerhill either. They always have strong junior teams. Will be interesting to see how Ballivor v Ultans in last rounds pans out too.

All 2nd teams are being kicked out of the main competitions and being moved into new competitions called "Premier" championships. The name makes as little sense as the concept.

From 2020 on we'll have Senior, Intermediate and Junior for 1st teams, and Premier, Premier B, Premier C etc. for 2nd, 3rd, 4th teams.

Bizarrely, while we're removing 2nd teams from the championships with 1st teams, we're adding them to the league with 1st teams??

Athboy are probably favourites. I think Dunsany have a very good chance as Kilmessan are out of the hurling now. Wouldn't rule out Ballivor yet.

How are you rating Athboy as favourites when Vincents beat them in the latest round?

Agree. Would put all other teams mentioned ahead of Clann na nGael at the moment unless their main players Griffin and the Swaine's are all fit and playing. Even Moylagh are very experienced and Summerhill 2nd team always strong and hard beaten.
