Replying To eoinog:  "When you look at the incident in slow motion it doesn't look good. He didn't have to put his foot on Foley's ankle. He could easily have avoided it. I'm not saying he will get suspended over it because the rules in GAA are off the radar. As a matter of interest did you see the umpire waving Clifford's point wide from the penalty but then change his mind.. if you can't trust a man standing by a post when a forward takes a shot unopposed from a penalty then you really don't know what to expect with the other tackle"
That penalty really was scandalous, everyone in the ground could see it was straight over the bar, hilarious really.

The standard of umpires is a lot worse than the standard of referring

Yup we were robbed of a goal against Tyrone by umpires

You'd wonder what position we'd be in if that goal had stood. They're the margins sadly

On the Clifford penalty point I think the umpire kind of waved his hands wide as he expected a goal and twas his way of signalling a miss and it was embarrassed by the wave wide.On the Heneghan Foley incident having watched it a few times I cant say for sure whether it was intentional or not.Only Heneghan knows himself.IF it was done on purpise then it was a nasty thuggish act but it might have been accidental.Sometimes a player can injure themselves trying to avoid other players so it might look worse than it is.

Good luck to the u20s this evening.

Great performance by the Under 20's tonight coming back from seven points down and giving away three goals in the first 23 minutes to get a draw. Great heart and determination by all the players and probably should have won it in the end. All over Mayo in the second half. Particularly impressed by Shane Walsh, Shane McGinley, Bobby Nugent, sub Ryan Conlon and the kickouts from Sean Allen (who will learn from his one mistake). The management were also proactive and made changes which made a difference.

As most of these players are third level students it is ridiculous of the GAA to play several under 20 matches around the country on a Wednesday night and force the players to miss college. These matches should be played on a Friday night or on a Saturday. Not thinking of the pressure these young lads are under.

Good U20 championship game in Hyde park this evening and we did well to battle back from 7 points down to earn a draw which on the balance of play we fully deserved to get. The opening 15 minutes will be looked back on the most by management I'm sure when we conceded 3-2 of Mayos 3-7 total score and some very bad goals to concede at that.

Shane McGinley with 1-8 one of our stand outs Lambe, Heneghan also good and we got good impact of the bench Conlon, Ó Flaherty, Kerins impressive.

Well no not everyone. I was in the stand and I couldn't believe Clifford had blasted it wide and though the umpire was right. It was blasted and probably the worst spot to observe it was right beside the post. He was probably watching the net or for an infringement.
Still justice was done in the end. Remember referees have to pass a certain standard to be appointed but umpires are not as far as I know. Some of them can be slow to spot things like the Roscommon goal again Tyrone. Having seen the stamping incident played back I'm not quite sure what to think. The player appears to be looking out the field at the time so may not have been deliberate.

Agree with that. I think next week's match against Sligo will also be at 5.30 on Wednesday but at least the players will be on Easter holidays. I was very happy with Roscommon tonight. We could have won it in the end but we did well to battle back from the early deficit. The team will learn a lot from tonight. It's good that there's a round robin as well. Otherwise one of these teams would have been out of the championship tonight after extra time or penalties. Sligo won Connacht at U 17 three years ago so I expect they'll be tough opposition for us next week. Markievicz park hasn't always been kind to the Rossies. A particular mention to Shane McGinley who won man of the match and deservedly so.

Well done Ros lads.
Great heart and spirit and ability to come back after that disastrous start.

Heneghan being hit with a 1 match ban is the word

Good result in the end Wednesday evening and a great crowd. One thing we have to say is under this management we have had two shocking starts last year against Sligo and this year against mayo. Last year there was no second chances and we had a very decent team. If we want to go further we can't start games like this. My cousin is part of the Galway under 20 panel and said Leitrim are a very decent team. I'd imagine Sligo are good and Galway probably favourites for Connacht so we can't afford starts like that. We done brilliantly to get back and could have won it. Will we get any injured players back this year. I know colm neary is out for the year.

Roscommon will beat the Derry B team on Sunday and will probably survive relegation.
Looks ominous for Galway really.
Best of luck to ye.

Cliffords not named on the Kerry team for Sunday so it's goodbye Division 1 for Ros I'm afraid.
Jack has obviously "declared" as they'd say in another sport.

Derry aren't going to name a B team when they still need a point to reach the final. It's ominous looking for Roscommon and even if they pulled off the win Galway could at least draw with Kerry whom have rested the Clifford brothers and are without all of their first choice full back line due to injury the two O'Sullivans and Foley.

Not sure why you thought Derry would have a B team? Derry team named and as expected it's 1st choice team with nobody rested.

We will do well to stay within 8/9 points of them. We are miles off that intensity and game plan so far this year

Sure David pulled his hamstring with the run up he took to the penalty last weekend

Wouldn't expect them to play a B team but why are we so certain to believe the named 15 in this day and age?
