What can you expect when it is open to a public vote?
No JJ Delaney, TJ Reid, John Fenton, JBM, John Mullane....
By the way, Diarmuid O' Sullivan did play corner back for Cork, but I get your point.

Hi All,

This is to all hurling clubs.

We have trained young men in aggression and to compete wiith that aggression.

Then we left them floating in the wilderness.

Davy Fitz has called for the opening of GAA pitches. I agree.

These lads need it.

Maher has 6 All Stars too. The modern players have a bit more advantage I feel with the public vote. Still I would probably have gone with Keady, a prince of a centre back. The others you mention pretty good too. Drop Diarmuid O'Sullivan for JJ at No 4 too.

In fairness, Limerick have some great stick men these days.

What do lads think the "winter" championship season will deliver? Short evenings, colder weather etc. but most of the training will be done on perfect pitches in fairly dry weather so teams will have been at "fast" hurling for two months before the October provincial semis. Plus the games will be on decent pitches and will be serious high-stakes matchups.

At first I thought Tipp or Limerick were nailed on - given their winter capabilities. You can imagine a heavy-arsed Bubbles Dwyer ploughing through it and still banging them over from out on the sideline near midfield. But then winter hurling doesn't really come into it until late December / January so maybe not so much...

A certain amount will depend on where the games are played.
I was at the league games in the spring and some pitches were pristine , others looked as if cows had been grazing there the night before.
Because all pitches have largely been idle for so long they should all probably be in better condition than you would expect, but , the biggest factor will be the weather on the day.
