I know that viking.

What I mean is I expect him to play a key role in pre season.

We need another top class defender and another scoring forward who can win their own ball.

I'm hoping Kyle, or molly from gorey are the answer to that.

Not sure who the forward it yet.

I like seamie o a hagan but needs 2 or 3 years.

Conal Clancy is the full package but has to tidy up his shooting.

No telling how far he can go then.

Clancy was good but not outstanding at u20. O Hagan good too but as you say a couple of years off intercounty. Not sure we need another wing back urgently if Bailey and Murphy are back fully fit next year. Along with Paudi Foley, Flood, MOH. Scallan is a good prospect there for sure. Cullen if he would commit. Carthy is excellent too but not interested. Barrett a few years off yet also. The Molloys are good hurlers. David Clark too.
Prospective cornerbacks are probably more important right now. We have only really S Reck, Devitt and Donohue. AJ and Niall Murphy probably a year or 2 off still.
Midfield is a position we need to look at more also. Dee and Mogie are both 30 plus.
Potential starting intercounty forwards apart from Lawlor and Clancy would include Byrne Dunbar, Keane Carroll, Ross Banville, Higgins, Jack Redmond, Pepper. I think Tucker Kinsella has great potential too. All would be a good bit off starting intercounty championship size and standard though.
I think that's the important bit. All the young lads above would need to keep improving and growing to get to the standard we would need. But at least they are around to do that.

Replying To Past hurler:  "Outside of James Lawlor, any other goalkeepers impressing in any of the championships so far that could be looked at for the county panel?"
Dylan Byrne definitely worth a look.

That man is so good he can even stop certain goals with a hurl he isn't even holding, like a Jedi mind trick!!!

I think if we have the full compliment we'll see one of the recks in the corner, and flood moving to midfield as he's not the world's best marker, but very good going forward.

Word on the street is mogie is done.

I expect dee to keep going. He's in good nick and has avoided injury most of his career.

Fair play to mogie lasting this long considering he probably had for career threatening injuries before he was 25.

It's hard to tell where the next chinner or mac are.

But on the other hand, Rory sort of came out of nowhere.

All in all I think we have a lot to look forward to.

Back on topic, I wish we weren't running off the championship so early.

It's harming us in leinster big time.

If oulart get by the alley, they're surely a good shout for all Ireland glory.

On a separate point from all of the above, why is it only in Wexford park that the referee indicated to the line what time to be added? At a game at the weekend where there was nearly 7 minutes added in a fairly clean match maybe at the most 5 minutes, no serious injurys etc, player scores to level game after 5 minutes and match continues on. I know extra time is at refs desecration but surely when it goes over 60 minutes, can a referee not indicate 4 -5 minutes injury time since they already do it in Wexford Park. I dont see the difference.

Would clean up all this mess with not knowing whats added on.

Any truth Paudie n Oisin foley won't be involved next year due to both travelling

Was an issue in Ross for the Intermediate QF Taghmon v Fethard. Noone had any idea how long was added or how long was left.

Rory only lasted 10 minutes last weekend with the knee. Worrying stuff hope he will be OK. He didn't come from nowhere though. He was always a top player underage. There isn't going to be another Chin. Agree about Flood. He was always a forward underage. And a top prospect at that. Positional sense not what it needs to be for a back but maybe it will come in time. AJ has made the switch better.

St Annes have objected hearing at 9.30pm this evening.

Replying To beano:  "It calls into question the integrity of umpires. Like, I saw in two separate games this week the referee over-ruling after a wide was signalled a point or vice versa. How could they be so wrong here? Surely a ball hitting the post would have a distinctive sound? I imagine it hitting a hurl bag like it did would be deadened in comparison. How many times have umpires been called aside to inform about off the ball incidents? And that's treated as gospel but they miss something like this."
Are the umpires involved with this the same 4 guys that James Owens uses for inter county games?

Paudie is anyway not sure about Oisin.

I was told they were both heading off for Australia immediately so maybe they might be back

Blackwater almost snatched victory from the jaws of deafeat vs Askamore too with all the injury-time the referee played. Although by the same token, they pulled level twice, and Askamore still had time to go in front twice more. I will say, you'd generally know pre-game that certain refs are more liberal with their time-keeping than others.

As for Owens' umpires, I know he is a cohort of a few that he calls upon, mightn't be the same four at club level game to game.

What was the outcome? I saw that footballer fellow Redmond Barry complaining on social media but his own goalkeepers hurls were in an identical place in the goal.

Id imagine there will be no replay if it hasnt been announced yet with st martins due to play the semi final this sunday. If a replay was granted the door would be open to every team in the country to put cameras behind goals to check for missed scores that happens quite often.

Does anyone know how Conor Mahony is going? He looked a serious prospect a few years ago but then got a rather serious injury if my memory is correct. I thought he would be back by now, he has been number 30 on the Glynn Barntown panel for the last few matches.

Footballer fellow lol if the county had 60 men like Red Barry we would be winning Leinster titles every year.

The same Red Barry who played a NFL Division 1 Semi Final v Tyrone and NHL Division 1 v Kilkenny the same day for his county.

Ahead of the relegation final, just wondering if anyone know when the last time Rathnure were intermediate? Surely Pre Rackards. Can't find it anywhere

Yeah a rather curios way to label one of the great Wexford GAA stalwarts of recent years but it seems he may always be one of "them" for daring to play with the big ball it seems.

I remember that day well that he played both games, one of the wettest days i can remember, leaving Portlaoise after beating Tyrone by a point to reach the league final ( the last time we have reached a league final in either code and only one this century) and rushing like a madman down the road to Nowlan Park where unfortunately Kilkenny done what they often done, got revenge the next day out for us beating them in 2004 in the Leinster Semi Final.

We didnt win much those years but in was a memorable and really enjoyable time, we were competitive in both codes with great trips away following both teams up and down the country.

It's in black and white in the rule book, as per the post I put up a couple of days ago:
no Objection or Counter-Objection may be submitted on grounds that a referee had incorrectly allowed or failed to allow a score

I haven't heard it officially, but that would mean that unfair and all as it may seem, the appeals committee would have no choice but to rule the St. Anne's appeal out of order, or else they'd be in contravention of the rule book themselves....and that would open up a whole other can of worms.

Conor will be starting for the Glynn Barntown Junior Hurling team in their semi final v St.Pats Saturday.
