I'm more focused on Junior; here are my views for a "par performance" for each team - with my overarching theme that the lack of relegation for 2 years has left 3B teams much more competitive against 3A teams than you'd typically expect;

Group 1:
Sean McDermotts: Very tough group for them. Don't expect them to make it out. A win and a QF would be massive accomplishment
Togher: Stabannan will be a big test but would expect to win group and will want to go the whole way.
Stabannan: Will fancy their chances of beating McDermotts after beating them by 7 and 10 in league. I think par performance is somewhere between a QF and SF and a lot will depend on QF draw if they do lose to Togher

Group 2:
Westerns: Very lucky to be drawn in group of 3 with Annaghminnon but still expect them to lose
Annaghminnon: Equally, very lucky to be drawn in group of 3 with Westerns. I expect a QF appearance and no further
Lannleire: 2 double digit group wins and and they should make Semis unless draw the runner up in Group 1 which might then prove tricky. I expect them to reach Final but fall at last hurdle

Group 3:
Dowdalshill: A win would a great achievement but I think they'll lose all 3
Naps: As with Mitchells, their season hinges on that second game against each other. Winner should make QF and that will probably be that
Mitchells: Same as Naps
Glyde: Seem to have good numbers and a some good young talent. Strong chance of winning it and Semi Finals at a minimum

Group 4:
Nicks: A decent draw and they won't fear Malachis. I think they'll make QFs
Malachis: Will fancy their chances with three 3B teams but I don't think they'll get out of group. Should beat Cuch Gales though
Cuch Gaels: A win would be a great achievement
Wolfe Tones: Strong favourites for group after narrowly missing out on winning 3A league. I think QFs but if they draw runner up in Group 2 a SF is potentially on the cards...
