Wide open for Sars tbh.


I'd imagine the only way that team ( who presumably hadn't trained together before the Middleton game) , would be beaten in Cork is if they had a number of players unavailable due to fixture clashes in Waterford.

Tough on Newcestown didn't get the rub of the green or the ref.,
Bandon were very flat, most likely dual club syndrome !

Newcestown can have zero complaints. They qualified for this stage through extreme good fortune beating only a CIT team that did not train and very few available to them and equally poor Ballyhea team. Yesterday they offered nothing to that match bar a general messing. They relied almost entirely on one player, Twomey number 13, to get scores from frees. The fact that they finished with 15 players is also something that they should ld be thankful for. Blackrock, who are no great shakes themselves, had far more scoring options. 5 of their starting forwards scored from play. They scored more from play and relied less on soft frees to keep them in the game. The reality is the Newcestown keeper pulling off three great saves and the poor weather conditions kept Newcestown in it.

On a slightly separate note. First of all credit to a rural area like Newcestown for having a senior hurling and football team. This isn't a go at them but rather a criticism of the championship structure. Newcestown, though their own results, are just not good enough to be senior. They have lost every single league match. They beat Ballyhea in the championship who also lost most of their matches. For the sake of the game and for the health of the game and for the benefit of all the clubs, competitions need to be steam lined. This was one of Kevin O Donovan proposals. A heap of senior clubs should be in the secondary competition.

Two drab games yesterday only coming to life at the end. Would prefer both club teams to advance as it would streghten the club scene in Cork.

Brother was at the games. Said Fleming (Aghada) and O'Connor (Sars) stood out, outside of the inter-county lads. Also said O'Leary (Castlelyons) played well in parts.

Relegation win for Carrigtwohill over Ballyhea 2-17 to 3-12, despite being 2-4 to 0-0 down after 7 minutes.
Huge for the parish and the next generation.
But sure there's no relegation !
