National - Cadbury GAA U21 Football Championship 2012

Hi Rebel.Og, Murphy played well alright, very good on the ball, all the backs were good in fairness, very disciplined in the tackle. We had 2 lads sent off for 2 yellow cards each. Waterford in Tralee in 2 weeks and then hopefully a meeting with yerselves in the Final.

Great win for Mayo last night and O'Connor with 9 points was the difference. I also though mayo looked fitter than galway especially in extra time it seemed to tell. Galway however will kick themselves....16 wides to 5 for mayo- its like roles reversed.

I was impressed with the Galway full back and number 13. Anybody know who they are? I landed in late and had no program.

So it's Sligo v Leitrim and Mayo v Roscommon next Wednesday in the Connnacht semi-finals,as the Rossies hope to continue their recent domination of the visitors at this level.We have knocked Mayo out the last 2 years running,Ray Dempsey will not want it to be 3-in-a-row for him and his management team. Extra time will have brought on Mayo and it promises to be a tough game in Kiltoom.
Roscommon have had a poor pre-season and the huge loss of Shane Layden and Daniel Qualter to the Irish U-20 rugby team from the Minor team of 3 years ago mite make this too steep a hurdle for the lads.

As ever hilarious Killer. I wouldn't use losing Shane Layden and Daniel Qualter to rugby as excuse afterall these guys are gone for a few years now. Injuries has been our problem thankfully they are clearing up now & Dineen has stronger squad to choose from. 80mins of competitive football will bring on Mayo but we are at home next Wed & certainly have enough talent to beat Mayo for the 3rd year running & hopefully with a bit of luck we do!

We've won a Connacht title in the last 2 years same as yourselves and would have turned you over in the Connacht final only for young O'Connor nailing all his frees and O'Donnell bringing on a kamikaze of a defender.

Mayo are the team to beat in Connacht now but i can't see them beating the Ulster champions in the semi final.

So Roscommon would've beat Mayo last year if they hadn't fouled so much in front of goal. That's on a par with the "if we scored more we'd have won" type of argument, fascinating logic.
