It Starts Again (Club Hurling)

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

Agree with you lads... MLR are now in a position that has previously been the preserve
of Eire og and The Blues. Celbridge will be a serious threat to their ambitions and MLR backroom team are shrewd enough to realise that one win is not enough for this panel which is now hungry for success.

I think that Rangers will win and their fighting spirit will be testred to the full.

Lads... what impact do you think the crowd has? Realistically the team itself will not really hear the crowd as their fiocus will be totally on the game. The impact of the crowd is when they are under pressure and need a lift. That is when the crowd is important.

Best of luck to them

guys just wondering will this rangers team be more or less our senior county team for next year i would say apart from one or two this will be the county team so lets hope we can put it up against one of hurlings strongest clubs in the country in celbridge as kildare hurling is very strong this will be a test

---- Apparently, no decision has been made as of now on the crowd capacity in St. Conleths park, if so then a double header is very probable, provided of course Athy win to day.

Supersub 15 i know health and safety made some stupid recommendation bout newbridge but it hasnt been implemented and hopefully it wont as everyone knows that grounds is well able to accommodate at least 8000. Hope both games are held there next Sunday. Good day out. Only snag i see is ability of that pitch to hold 2 games at this time of year, esp. if weather deteriorates between now and then.

Agree with you there pennypincher, and wouldn't it be a terrible pity if the games were at two seperate venues, they wouldn't do that, would they.?

So no double header on Sunday. The hurling on saturday at 2 in Newbridge, and the football on Sunday at 2 at same venue.

They may as well have played them at two seperate venues, I didn't see that coming.

Its a bit stupid alrite. I see Parnell Park is having a double header Sunday with Skerries vs Confey in Inter semi at 12.45 and Brigids vs Horeswood in Senior qf after it.

The pitch would be well able to take 2 games in Newbridge too as weather has been generally ok.

At this stage the fixture is made and from a Rangers point of view they will appreciate a good sod so better to be playing before the football and not second on Sunday! Best wishes to the Rangers. Dont stop now!

Just like to wish Mount Leinster Rangers the very best of luck on saturday. Hope to see a big carlow crowd there to support them. It would be a great boost for hurling in the county if they could win this. They are well capable of a win here & i think they will. seems to be good steel about them. would be great to see Edward Coady, James Hickey & all those lads who serverd the county so well and who continue to do so get there just reward. Good Luck Lads.
