Is Spratt in charge of MTU? Who’s the UCC coach… I know Billy Morgan is involved. MTU are much stronger than UCD imo this year

A great campaign for both Cork colleges so far in the Sigerson Cup. And we have Cork representatives on other teams too. For example, Mark Lenahan (Buttevant), Seán McDonnell (Mallow) and Darragh Cashman (Milstreet) started for UL. Conor Corbett for DCU of course.

Good to see Cathail O' Mahony come on for UCC scoring 4 points tonight.

How's it fair to have played in DCU?


Stand to be corrected but its first out gets home advantage, bar Munster/Ulster games they go neutral because of the distance.
I would think most the college grounds have the facilities to to host the games at this time of year so they do not have to go looking for
a neutral venue which would not be available.

UCC played at home already in competition as have MTU and both lost whilst having home advantage. Big ask for MTU to beat them in their back yard, be interesting which of the backs takes up Corbett, but they are formidable everywhere up top anyway. Hopefully Electric Ireland are streaming it as they have done with some of the games so far.
 
I know I’ll be accused of Clon bias now but i can’t understand how Dan Peet isn’t getting game time for UCC.

I see Luke Donnelly scored 3-3, incredible to think that a forward can do that kind of damage and still mgmt decline to bring on one of the best young defenders in the game to shackle him.

I do notice a strong city make up of the management team. Makes you wonder is there bias at play….

I’ll be shocked if UCC can win this without using Peet.
