Westmeath Hurling 2019

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Big game for the lads on Sunday away to Kerry, didn't make the London game but saw all the Kehoe cup games and performances were patchy. However, it's league now and a different story. It will take a good performance to beat Kerry down there but it's vital we come away with something, either way if we beat Antrim in Belfast (not easy either) then this is a dress rehearsal for the final, you'd imagine. Can we finally get out of Div 2??

Wasn't at it but heard after an awful fifty minutes we played for a quarter of an hour and got three lucky goals. We haven't played at all so far. If we are going to make division one we will need to up our game big time

Great win at the weekend, we made hard work of it but a win is a win. Team is starting to get stronger as we go on

Strong second half display today against Antrim . Mitchell made a big difference when introduced. Good to see the Jogger returning to form. Derek McNicholas 2 scores from lineballs were exceptional.

well they are as good if not better than Carlow on paper anyway and they look to be staying up in 1b...running Dublin close and drawing with mighty galway

Definitely cannot say better yet. They played Carlow in two finals last year and bottled it both times! With a new manager this year hopefully they can finally get up to 1B for next season.

How are Westmeath shaping up at underage in hurling now? They haven't done much since that good team with the two Doyles.

The team is still a bit lacking for 1b. Carlow are physically bigger and have more forwards that can win their own ball in the air. This Westmeath team can win the league but the opposition is poor and the Mcdonagh cup will be a big step up. We need Varley back and no injuries to have a chance.

i think it will be announced today.This is a massive game,if we can win it will put us in division 1 for first time in many years.The reality though despite winning in Tralee Kerry are playing better we will need a massive performance for seventy minutes something we havent seen since the Offaly game in 2016.

A huge game and massive for hurling in the county. I assume no bus is going from Mullingar to it? There could be demand for it as I wouldn't expect the match is on tv.
