Your being a bit kind to us I think! I'd take a 1 point victory Sunday, just need to get a win and kickstart the season! Awful weather promised so I don't expect it to be pretty. I'm hopeful that Ros can get over the line in this one, our next game is away to Kildare so a result Sunday is vital.
In the other games I predict wins for Kildare, Fermanagh and Laois.

with the weather there will probably be cancellations which will probably mean that come the end of the league there will be extra games to be played and maybe dead rubbers which wont be played and also you might have the scenario whereby teams have an advantage by knowing exactly what they have to do.

Could they not play them next week as it's a free week in the league?

I listened to RTE 1 Sports on Morning Ireland, not a mention of the Football League matches, Rugby, Soccer, Golf, Snooker, and Formula 1, all mentioned, at 8.40 am.
No GAA.

I'd say any games cancelled will be played next weekend

The weather forecast for the weekend seems to be getting worse all the time. I'd rather games be called off the weekend than go ahead in gale force winds. Nothing worse than watching two teams trying trying to play football in a storm. Anyone that was at the Roscommon vs Mayo game last year in the league will remember that. It was horrible to watch.

Don't think I'll ever forget that night! Worst conditions I've ever seen a game played in.

The weather for 2011 Connacht final played in July was just as bad. No harm if its called off Sunday, as said already next weekend is free plus we might have 2 or 3 of of our injury players returning to action if it was played Sunday week.

I'd expect the game to go ahead and to be played in dreadful conditions. I'd gladly take a lucky 1 point win for Roscommon.
