    Default Hurling 2015

    Hurling 2015 begins this weekend. Yes I know there was the provinical competitions like the Waterford Crystal and Walsh Cup taking place but who remembers who won them come September. 2 interesting divisions, some excellent matches to look foward to. Little room for error in either division. Room for experimentation and trying new players out depends on management views. Supporters may want this but may not be in accordance with how management teams view the season. Can't wait to start.

    No offence meant to die hard fans but it really is a pity so few teams are any good,this is the one game that could potentially have a world following if only their were more than four or five good games a year.

    Agree with you Saul. There are many issues and problems though to be overcome. There are positives though. A national director of hurling has been re-appointed. On Sunday in Croke Park there are the Junior and Intermediate club finals. In the junior club final Fullen Gaels from Lancashire are playing. The club is in existence just 10 years. In the Intermediate final there is Kilburn Gaels from London. There is also a warwickshire championship. There is also a new game cannot think of the name given to it. It is 13 a side all goals no points and unlimited subs. It has been trialled in USA and before the 2013 All Ireland Final replay. Alot of counties here only pay lipservice or dont want hurling in their county. Sad but true.

    I disagree with you bcs, i think there are about five or six teams that could win an all ireland. The cats, cork, clare, limerick, tipp. Dublin and galway not that far behind either. Compared to football where theres only 2 or 3 teams.

    great that its back and should be some great games this weekend. All games in div 1a are hard to predict. As u say it depends what players managers pick. Limerick to beat waterford in 1b.

    Good man Ketchup. Some great games this weekend definitely. Cork wont want to lose at home. Interesting to see how Kilkenny shape up with the retirements and missing the Ballyhale lads. Dublin with Ger Cunningham now in charge. How will Liam Rushe experiment at full foward go? Tipperary looking for a foward to help out Bonner Maher on a more consistent basis. Clare have the talent and potential. They will be looking at getting a physical midfielder and a ball winner in the half foward line to complement John Conlon. Galway need a foward to step up now that Joe Canning is out for probably all the league. They need to become more consistent as well. Too much good performance one match and shocking the next.
    Limerick will be looking to win at home but wouldnt write off Waterford.
    Laois could very well be the dark horses in division 1 B. Cheddar Plunkett doing a serious job there.

    You kinda are in agreement,i said a few good games,you need five or six teams for that.

    If Football had 32 good teams it would still be basically a local sport as it really is nothing special.

    Lets hope the weather stays ok for the weekends games. Galway are the hardest team to fathom out, great underage and club teams but when it comes to seniors they just cant make the breakthrough. Wexford and laois have made good strides n the last year.

    That is one of the problems Ketchup. The club scene. Speaking to a few Galway lads who would know the situation they say that there is a very intense club scene there. Hard then to unite for county.
    You from Wexford right?

    no, i am not kinda agreeing with u. You said 4 or 5 good games. Every game in munster championship is good, thats 4 games, all ireland semi finals, final and final replay, and the leinster final. And then theres the league games. Thats alot more than 4 r 5.
