Think the final will be a cracking game. Saw both semi finals - Kilbride were very impressive, especially in the second half against Boardsmill. Ratoath were also better in the second half but weren't as impressive as Kilbride.

I think if both teams play to their potential it will be a cracking game with little in it! Kilbride are probably more experienced but I think the Ratoath second string may want to prove something to their followers!!

Well done Ratoath - awesome second half - not many senior teams would have lived with that!

Kilbride were blown away in second half
Didn't have an answer for the power and speed of the young ratoath men
Would loved to have seen how they would fair in junior A

Yeah agree! Shame about the changes! This Ratoath second team and other second teams provide real competitive games to the like of Slane Boardsmill and Kilbride
Yesterday, Ratoath were filled with lads under 20 - 10 I believe - and Kilbride struggled to deal with them! Ahern, Flynn and Byrne were a great half forward line and the big lad ipnfromt (14) was as good as any senior player I have seen!

Ratoath were by far the better team and weren't happy with kilbride not willing to change the time of the game for them which gave them a little more reason to beat them

Not sure there was any motivation other then to perform to there abilities
They do have a good team and young Padraic Byrne was the stand out player on the day
I was told when I asked that he has never been asked to even trail for our county under 20s
Surly he has something to offer
There were many other good performances on the day that all lead to a fantastic team result

That is rubbish
I know a few of the Ratoath lads - they didn't ask Kilbride for a change of time!
They had a memorial mass that evening and I believe both the junior and senior squad were there in big numbers
Don't think the time of the match mattered

Okay - I happen to know for a fact that Ratoath made an enquiry as to the time
They were told 3.45 - they asked was there any possibility of getting the earlier game but were told there wasn't - it had nothing to do with kilbride - and if it did I know 100% that the Ratoath management knew nothing about it
