The Hurling Thread

We were told last year some of the Cork lads couldn't get All Stars because they had a bad final. I'm thinking Sean O Donaghue in particular. Possibly Jack O Connor. Fast forward 12 months, Tony Kelly stinks out Croke Park in the All Ireland semi final with his performance and they have no issue awarding him a gong. Different rules for different counties in my opinion. All depends if your face fits with the Dublin media.

I'm flabbergasted that Ciaran Joyce wasn't awarded YHOTY as well. I know Butler was good, but he wasn't consistently at Joyce's level and is getting the award off the back of a man marking job in the semi.

Thought Butler a good final also, indeed the KK FB line were completely isolated in that final and yet probably came out on top, considering the amount of ball going in. contrast that with when our FB line were isolated the year before. Butler probably deserved YHOTY, Joyce will have his day yet.

Was between MB & CJ alright but if Eoin Cody had won it he would've had 3 in-a-row. Lovely player to watch, really neat & smart.

He was brutal in the quarter final against Wexford bar the last 10 minutes. But hey it’s Tony Kelly.

I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of you. I'd be watching me back for the rest of my life 😀

He's some bang all the same though. Himself and Cian Lynch are the two best players in the country to watch in the flesh. Anytime they get near the ball the buzz in the crowd is palpable.
