Was there many ballygiblin players opted out of hurling and only played football last year?Huge opportunity for Ballygiblin to keep the form going. Maybe a few additions to the panel from Mitchelstown?!
Kilbrittain will likely fancy their chances and rightly so.
Not much between all teams other than Barryroe and Dripsey who have been circling the drain for a few years now. Barryroe do have a youngish crop coming through which might help them establish through the next cycle of a team.
Russell Rovers will be dependent on getting their attack back from cruciate injuries - completely blew up when Josh Beausang went off in delayed 2020 final v Castlemartyr with burst up knee and then losing their captain with another cruciate at training a few days later.
St Catherines will be in the long grass and confident of taking anyone else on.
It's Ballygiblin for me though...
I’d be shocked if barryroe came out of that group over Milford . I saw both sides play last year and feel they are at different levels completely but hurling is probably the most unpredictable game around so I could well be made look a fool hahaI would think Ballygarvan will be strong contenders in 2022, they ran Lisgoold close in the semi last year and they been playing at high grades underage.
Group B will be a tough one to call, Ballygarvan and Ballygiblin to come out of it but Argideen will be hard beat too.
Any two of the four could come out of Group C, could come down to scoring difference, the Glen will fancy winning a game or two here, Tracton beat an injury hit Russell Rovers last year and lost a close game to Catherines the year before. Catherines and Russell Rovers would be disappointed with last years results so they'll be better this year.
Kilbrittain and Barryroe in Group A? Barryroe lost all 3 games last year but they were all tight, their scoring difference was only -8 or something like that.
