How do people see this weekends games going. Hard to see anything other than comfortable wins for Mitchells & Fullen Gaels, although it would be good to see if Yorkshire and Barnabas could put it up to them

Was very impressed with Barnabas the last time out, EGB are difficult to beat but they beat them with ease. Yorkshire impressed me early on this year too so, although you'd fancy Fullen and Mitchels to go through, I'd be surprised if it's as easy as other years.

Great win for Fullen Gaels. Who do they play in the Intermediate All-Britain Championship?

Fullen Gaels v Fulham Irish at PNE on 28/10 I believe. Fullen should have too much for Fulham.

Did Wolfe Tones realise they were playing hurling not soccer or hockey? to only score 1 point in a hurling match Jesus its like in the early days when the number of goals decided the winning of the match. But all in all great to see another team in the north west. There is the bones of a good league now with Fullen Gaels and Yorkshire emeralds.

there is the bones of a good league if these teams travel to fulfil league fixtures , fullen gaels dont travel for any league matches , they are only interested in the all britain & beyond , the standard will not improve in britain unless they enter the league structures and do their bit for the development of hurling in britain.
The very best of luck to Wolfetones with the new hurling team , ther have been a few clubs set up hurling lately but unless the all britain champs , the team they all look up , support the league structure then Hurling in the uk will suffer

Would it not make more sense for hurling outside of london to be organised by a dedicated hurling board? 2 lancashire teams, a yorkshire team, the nottingham team playing the majority of their games in warwickshire reduces the appeal of playing hurling regularly? Would places like Newcastle, Cardiff, Edinburgh be more likely to put teams together to compete if they had a few home games in the year?

Travel and no shows was always an issue for league matches don't know how many times I travelled down to Birmingham for a league match then waited round to see if the other team would turn up or if we could manage to give them a few subs to have a match then try and find a ref. But there is a chance now where you could have a north and south league where the north teams play each other FG YE WT and the top one plays the top in the south league JM EGB? BS RC? and the second place teams play a shield final? would that work???

The only way a league is going to work is if the games are played on a Saturday afternoon as for the most part clubs are made up if duel players and the footballers will always win out as the football league is far more competitive and better run in both Warks and Lancashire.

Seeing as there are 7 teams I don't think it would be so hard to ask every team to field for 6 league games in the year. three home and three away with each team playing each other once. Play the games on the second saturday of every month from March to September so everyone is aware the game is taking place a month beforehand and lads can plan accordingly. Play straight knockout championship. Prelimary round in late July, Quarters in mid August, Semi's (Championship ans Shield) in early September and Final late September.

While it is not perfect at least there is a structure to it and lads know where they stand.

The problem with the structures involving the 7 Warwickshire/Lancashire teams is that the majority of the decent hurlers play with two clubs- Fullen Gaels and Mitchells. Any new players in Warwickshire end up with Mitchells and new players in Liverpool or Manchester play with Fullen. This can never provide a competition league/championship.
