Why are semi finals not being played in neutral venues?

Semi finals should be good this weekend.IF O,brien is still missing for CTG I would fancy Clonkill to win that 1. In the other semi I think Raharney have been struggling all year. They looked a tired team in the last game. LLG freshness could catch them out. Any thoughts.

Think Raharney and CTG will win pretty easy this weekend. Raharney could win by a cricket score with Killian Doyle returning to the attack against a limited LLG outfit. Castletown will win pulling up against Clonkill.

They beat the gaels by 15 points in their last game... At what stage did they look tired?

Will be a much closer affair this time around. Whoever gets the goals to win it.

Limited LLG outfit???? They have by far the best hurlers in the county in Jogger and McNicholas. An LLG win wouldn't surprise me.

They had both Jogger and McNicolhas the last day against Raharney and they were beat out the gate.

Alright we will see on Sunday. Hard to beat the same team twice in the championship.

In fairness Raharney have to be firm favourites to advance. Will be a closer game but have Llg the belief they can actually win? Haven't got by a semi since 09. Castletown slight favourites in the other game. But will the long wait for the semi final go against castletown. We will see on Sunday.
