Mayo - Mayo junior team

Good win last night for them but curious to why
that from the 4 clubs in the semi finals of
intermediate last year, theres only one player, Mark Ronaldson, involved. Is this normal for the juniors, it seems to be mostly North Mayo players..

Most players won't give their time as it's the competition is not taken seriously by many. The standard has dropped steadily over the past few years. Ulster don't compete in it and a number of Leinster counties in Leinster are the same. It should be used for younger players who have a realistic chance of making it in the senior inter county grade. If I'm not mistaken, a few of the lads playing for Mayo struggle to make their club Junior/Intermediate team.
