Surely Cavan Have To Start With Their Strongest Team.

(Oldest Posts First)

Thomas Galligan made a huge impression on the game when he was introduced against Monaghan and Antrim. Cavan would not have beaten Monaghan without him. And this goes back to the age old question of should you always start with your strongest team. Some say nowadays that you should finish with your strongest line out. Perhaps the Cavan management know that Galligan might not be able to last the 70 minutes etc etc but to me and to give Cavan a greater chance of winning Thomas Galligan should be an automatic starting choice for next weekends game against Down.

Its hard to know.

Some will say start him, some will say he'd be better coming in fresh at half time or shortly after.

In Mickey we trust.

Yeah he probably should start, carrying a groin injury so might not have full 70 minutes in him.
Some teams finish with stronger teams then started. Connolly making big impact for Cork yesterday. McMenamin doing it for years with Dublin.
