Yes. But no more that Cork very few Waterford people visit this site. Yes, Waterford I think are the boys to take Limerick out. Let the games commence.

Maybe Canuck will do us all a favour and go over there.

Canuck is a proper hurling man, whereas you countyman2022 are a proper clown!

And apologies to the clowns!

I'm sorry John Kiely, but we'll keep you guessing ;)

Just know that our depth on the panel is rapidly increasing to match your own teams ;)

Jokes aside I'm not sure if Liam Cahill himself is fully sure what his best team is and has planned for all eventualities. He's gotten game time into lots of newer guys, the Daly's and Mikey Kiely primarily and still not had to use Conor Prunty, Callum Lyons, Jamie Barron, Ian Kenny, Peter Hogan or Pauric Mahony and the Bennetts to any great extent. He's tried guy's in new positions and possibly found the home for Jack Fagan (an Fear mor, laidir agus crogach as contae an Mhi ;) ) and Patrick Curran has been a revelation so lets see what the future brings. Also has the likes of Mikey Mahony who could come in and be part of a big push after ballygunner's all ireland victory.

Don't tell me that you seriously entertain anything that countyman2022 comes out with? If you do, it's high time to shave that moustache!

If you haven't managed to notice, that same poster really does lower the Wexford tone!

That' looks like a really strong Waterford team. Neither of the Daly's making it… nor Daragh Lyons! I'm not too sure about Fagan making the starting 15, at half-back. But he'll be pushing hard for that spot.

What's the story with the Third Bennett? And Daragh Fives? Is he injured or retired?

I'd say Prendergast would be a starter ahead of either Curran, Shane or Keiron Bennett. Michael Kiely got chance of making the 15 too instead of 1 of those 3.

I'd be swapping Fagan and K. Bennett all day long. I thought both were excellent in their positions last year. Stephen Bennett probably at full but maybe rotating with Kiely. On recent form I cant see Shane Bennett getting next or near the starting team with the same for P Mahony. Conor G starts all day long for me and could play in most positions but I'd have him probably at corner back. Also I think Callum Lyons needs to be left alone at number 5 and not moved when playing the likes of Limerick. I'm not sure Curran will make the first 15 either. Dont get me wrong though - I think these lads are serious hurlers and Waterford have savage options.

Us Americans, we always try to promote your ancient Irish games, and quite often all we get for it is blame and complaint.

Reilly actually supports Wexford in the hurling and Monaghan in the football. Don't ask me why about the former. I believe that it might have to do with JFK and The Boys of Wexford and all that lark.

I was thinking of posting this information on the Wexford thread, but seeing that most of ye are on here anyway (and complaining and fighting with each other as usual), it's just as easy to inform y'all here.

As some said Fagan at 10 and Kieran Bennet at 7 probably works.

Stephen and Shane are both carrying niggling injuries but will be there or thereabouts.

Daragh fives is retired a couple of years now, injuries got the better of him i believe. Shane Fives was there last year but think he's also retired.
