Replying To Richieq:  "Best of luck to the lads tonight, strong looking team, interesting to see Andy Tormey back in a Meath shirt, we're defending champions so let's do our best to retain."
Good game tonight, lads played well. It's a pity this competition had dwindled to only 4 teams in Leinster. Tormey out with hamstring since last Friday night game v Wolf Tones, sitting in stand tonight. It gives lads a chance to play in Croke Park that's about the height of it. Kildare hammered Louth and always have a strong team.

Good to win tonight and it will the lads a game in Croke Park probably in front of a decent crowd. The more games these players get at this level the better. Ppl
Say it's only junior but you can't beat winning at intercounty level no matter what level it is at. We have seen the benefit for the players who are senior this year and played junior last year getting to the all Ireland final. Up the Royal

A great win and I believe that few of these players are certainly able to cut it at senior level. In particular few of the forwards are very classy. Natural finishers in daire Rowe,peter o Connell and Kevin Ross, dare I say,we were missing few finishers at the weekend so plenty of promise here. Kildare will be tough opposition but it's a good marker for meath.
Any other players stand out capable of cutting it at senior?

Winning is a habit, and hopefully a few of these lads will gain from this experience and bring it to seniors.
Where's final? A win over Kildare is always nice , so hopefully the lads can do it. Well done to all involved.
Hon the royal.

Replying To longroadback:  "Fairly strong looking team given that we are not using it as U23 team, hopefully they can get the job done tonight. Lot of clubs not represented like Curraha for instance, presume lads chose not to make themselves available"
As far as I know Curragha with rule changes means their players having played senior this year are out of bounds. I stand to be corrected.

Though Kevin Traynor was actually the pick of the bunch the other night, big powerful strong runner who rarely wastes a ball, suited to the type of football we want to play

yes i think Traynor is a good prospect injured early in the year and missed out with seniors him and Conor Farrell who impressed when he came on are the only two would have a chance to step up to senior

Kevin is a club mate of my own, don't think he was injured this year, didnt get the call, think he would be worth looking at for the Seniors

I don't think that is the reason as John Keane from Summerhill, who came on as a sub on Tuesday night, has played Senior Football this year for his club, as has Andrew Tormey, even though he did not play on Tuesday.

Final is a curtain raiser to Senior Final in Croke Park on June 24, a day out for us.

Rule for Meath is anybody who did not play senior last year is eligible this year.

It should be a good a day out with Meath and Kildare in the Junior and the Dubs and Laois in the Senior. Meath looking to retain the Championship that they won last year against the Wee County. I would go myself only that I'm staying in Carrick the previous night. Best of luck to the Royals.
