We have been going well at underage for a number of years. Our run is surely going to meet a bump in the road. Rossies are very good with 4 top forwards so they will be very dangerous.

It is a very young Galway team though with possibly up to 11 of the team that starts Saturday will be underage next year.

Probably Tyrone man but be tight. Fair achievement for Donegal to get to the final against fancied opponents in both rounds given the injury crisis. Hats off to them.

Its U20 so every team is young. Donal O Fatharta whom managed Galway U17s the last 3 years his currently picking what he believes is the strongest Galway U20 team which includes loads of players that has played in recent minor All Ireland finals. Galway 8/15 on with the bookies to win this Connacht final on Saturday for a reason.

Exactly. There's some amount of seafóid about, "our team is younger or has x amount underage next year".
The managers are picking what they believe to be best U20 team this year. If most of that team are U19, so what. It just means the older lads aren't considered as good.
We have a talented team and we should also have a talented team next year.
It's the best available in Galway versus the best available in Roscommon.
Really looking forward to it.

Kerry very impressive in the 2nd half outscoring Cork 0-12 to 0-3. By my count 10 of the Kerry players that featured tonight was their 2018 U17s. Ourselves or Galway will have to play very well to topple them in the All Ireland semi final.

Only 6 of the 19 Kerry players that played tonight are in their last year u20.

Completely agree very impressive indeed. Looked a very high quality game. Kerry will take some stopping on tonight's evidence.

Munster final was on TV Wed night, Leinster final on TV tonight. Does anyone know if either Connacht or Ulster finals are being shown anywhere or even highlights?. I'd like to get to Clones but not sure it's going to be possible.

Who are the standout players on the Roscommon team? I know Paul Carey would be one of the more highly rated of them.

Full forward line are all excellent and the best forward in their own club senior teams. All should play senior county in next few years if they avoid injuries

Dublin very impressive tonight. Physical and well organised unit. A cheap cup with the handle breaking off it.

I don't think we'll be starting as selected as we have a few injury doubts. Best of luck to the young rossies in Tuam tomorrow.

Although he didn't score, I thought Swan was a handful. He caused havoc when the ball went in and they struggled to handle him physically.

So another Leinster for Dublin. The months training and insistence (cause they can afford to) on keeping their under twenties away from the senior set up had paid dividend again. Way to go GAA and ur poxy rule changes. Big help to those trying to close gap.
