Fullen surely favourites for this. Going for 3 in a row, All Ireland finalists last year, provided the bulk of the Warwickshire team that won the Lory Meagher earlier on in the year. Also got a bigger test than Mitchels this weekend, with Barnabas a lot better than that score line would suggest.

There's been a change to the All Britain setup this year too, both finalists go through to the semis with the winners playing the winners of a quarter between Wolfe Tones Liverpool and Yorkshire Emeralds, and the losers playing the London Intermediate champs in the other semi.

What I don't get about this is how St Barnabas are left out of this equation, judging on yesterday's matches they would be far more deserving of a place in the All Britain than Yorkshire Emeralds, and even more worthy of a spot than Wolfe Tones, who have never played a competitive fixture yet since they were revived. It's a scandalous decision and looks like a bit of a half arsed attempt by provincial to make it look like they care about hurling outside of London. By not involving St Barnabas it's shown what we've long thought up here, provincial haven't a clue about hurling outside of London.

I think Fullen are going for 4 in a row.This competition is a joke to give Mitchells and Fullen 2 bites at the cherry and pay a bit of lip service to the northern counties. Barnabas should feel aggreived as I think they would have given Mitchells a run for their money.

Ye think ye have it bad up there? There might not even be an intermediate final played in London this year due to objections against players regrading/registered and the like.

How can wolfe tones play in AB when they have never played any match in any county. I can see why UNI GAA backs them as I am lead to believe they are just a Uni team who won't transfer. But why let the rules get in the way. Why did'nt Wolfe Tones play Championship this year after playing in a cup in Warickshire last year.

I hear that Wolfe Tones are strong enough and are intent on springing a surprise. They have a lot of Stan's rejects out to prove themselves. To those who criticise this competition, at least there is some action in the rest of Britain
