Walsh Cup 2018

(Oldest Posts First)

Walsh cup starting tomorrow. Very early in the season! Offaly vs Westmeath will probably be the pick of tomorrow's matches. Two fairly evenly matched teams. Meath vs Antrim will be an interesting one too. Wicklow's first go at this level and playing Carlow tomorrow.

Think the Walsh cup is a step to high for our hurlers at the moment, personally I would have concentrated on the kehoe cup, put out the strongest team and won it and got the year off to a positive start.

Yep - cos an Antrim side ( and an experimental Antrim side at that) is the benchmark of mightiness. Youse must fancy Liam this year..... Lol

It can be a target for Wicklow to improve.

Always important to get a few games against better teams.

Carlow have Wexford next which will give our lads an idea of where to aim at.

You seem a bit rattled. Calm down and move on to the next game. You wont be able to get a replay this time from us.

Credit to Wicklow on their brave entry (along with Kildare) into the Walsh Cup. They've also entered a second team into the Kehoe Cup. Has this ever been done before?

While it seems like Meath hurlers have the kibosh on Antrim lately, it's hardly worth touting in December pre-season.

Rattled - No. Just very amused to read your post this morning.
