Any word on Luke Gilmartin Tubercurry, hear he's moving well and scoring for fun. Injury free first time in a while!

Tourlestrane heavy but don't see who else was better than those lads this year. Few Mary's and DRP. Shamrock Gaels, Farnans and Coolera/Strandhill get one each.

Interesting selection. I went for Teape because of his semi final heroics. He didn't have a great Final. I included Gaughan because if I didn't I would get slaughtered. In the scoring charts he wouldn't be in the top 6 scoring forwards and unlikely to make the top 10. I don't count frees. But I think you have made a bigger call by leaving out Evan Lyon's.....

Replying To Sligobuck21:  "Will do my best to do weekly predictions for u21. A great competition each year. Something to keep the forum active also.
U21 A:
Molaise to beat St. Mary's. Don't know who will be able stop Keaney from dominating around midfield.
DRP to beat Ballymote/Bunninaden. DRP will just be better in the majority of areas on the pitch.
U21 B:
Tubbercurry/Cloonacool to beat Coolera/Strandhill. I predict the winners of this game to go on and
win it all. Tubbercurry/Cloonacool should come through here.
Curry to beat Coolaney/Mullinabreena. Can't see Curry losing. Don't know much about either side. Curry won the u20 last year so I'd guess they won't be far away again.
Calry/St Joseph's to beat Castleconnor . This will be a tight match. Both teams with good sets of forwards.
Geevagh/ St. Michael's to beat Tourlestrane. Another tight game. I don't know much about either sides.

Overall winners
U21 A - Molaise
U21 B - Tubbercurry/Cloonacool"
Two wrong this week for me. DRP being the biggest shock exit. No surprise with Molaises win.
Goals win games which Tubber shown. Curry had another comfortable scoreline. Geevagh/St Michael's lucky to get over the line against Tourlestrane I hear. Castleconnor surprised me with a massive win.

Ballymote/Bunninaden u21 A champions. Fair play to them. Heard the lads speaking on the radio after and sounds as if they were always near Molaise so great for them to get over the line. I wasn't at that game or any game as I was away this weekend.
Easkey/St Farnans came out one point winners over Geevagh/St Michael's. I would've expected Geevagh/St Michael's to come out on top there. Surprised me. They now take on Tubbercurry/Cloonacool in the semi final, a game I predict Tubbercurry/Cloonacool will win. Curry beat a Castleconnor side who won convincingly last week. Possibly a shock result?

I had topped Molaise from the start so I got it wrong. Even without Jack Davitt who will also miss the Connacht game on Saturday they put up a poor show. Molaise have a few other injuries for Saturday also so Tuam could be a graveyard for their dreams. With the U.20 Sligo team getting their medals on Friday evening it's a pity that these lads will have to behave impeccably. Could a case not have been made for the game to be played on Sunday. What do our reps do on Connacht Council?
If the U.20 team are to retain their title they will have to do it the hard way. Away to the Rossies, and if they win that away to Mayo and should they come out of that alive it's an away final against Leitrim/Galway.

Very disappointing show from our club teams in Connacht action over the weekend. Both gone at the first hurdle. Tourlestrane are in action this weekend. We badly need a victory. Big prize at stake, a Connacht final berth .

Well wouldn't have expected much out of Owenmore Gaels who are there by default and probably hadn't trained much. Molaise would have it tough away from home. Tourlestrane should be winning on Saturday given their experience but playing away against a young enough outfit may balance it out.

Has anyone seen league fixtures for 2023. How many home games have we?

Good showing from our teams this weekend. Congrats to Easkey on their hurling success. Also to Tourlestrane on their win at the weekend. Moycullen now await them in two weeks time after an Extra-Time win today over Strokestown.
Curry won the U21 B championship. EoinOg got his prediction correct. I went with Tubbercurry/Cloonacool from the start so not far off.

I went for Curry from the beginning because they won the U.20B championship last year and with a few lads on the Sligo U 20 panel I figured they would be strong. They should not have been allowed play B. When the same group of players won B the year before they should surely have played A this year.
