Meath - Meath juniors

Replying To Blackspot09:  "Also I know it's only kilkenny and I expect our lads to win and win well and I understand the Gaa are probably trying to promote football in kilkenny and give them a leg up on the footballing side of things but imo no team in an All Ireland semi final regardless if it's junior or senior should have home advantage. I still expect meath to win but that's my 2 cents worth. Should be neutral venue all the way"
Dublin get home advantage nearly all the time, kerry often up until munster final day too, tipperary as far as the all Ireland quarters get home advantage regularly aswell. It's no big deal.

Look we're gonna win I've no doubt about it and kilkenny is only an hour or so away but in my opinion all all Ireland semi finals should be neutral venue regardless of the grade or who's playing in them

Is the fixture going ahead? There was talk that Kilkenny might call it off

Anyone go to the juniors game today? Kilkenny managed to keep it tight until half time but Meath blew them away in the second half

I had a friend at it and he said Kilkenny should've been going in at half time winning. Missed two goal chances and hit seven wides. Meath upped it in the second half but Kilkenny still got through for goals. They lost there full back and centre back through injury and Meath were clinical in using the space. Heard the referee was poor.

That's the big one won handy final now v Kerry who can't play any of the team that won this Grade last year so really it's a Kerry junior B side. Can't see anything other than handy win

yeah meath manager said they were far too complacent in the first half. will be an interesting final against kerry who apparently were not that great in their semi either.
