Definitely if there's nothing on in front it would be very foolish not to go back, otherwise there is a higher % of been dispossessed. The infuses will be on breaking quickly without the lateral play.

Correct. Nothing wrong with defending in numbers. It is the speed of the attack that is important. There will also be lateral play at times as it is inevitable but by moving the ball quicker it should suit us more

Yes, Cathal Sweeney from Salthill and Killanin. Both flying in training.

Ronaldson is a free taker of the highest quality. Exactly what we have been missing.

I must have missed it but read an article there about players unavailable in 2020 and Peter Cooke is listed as being unavailable for Galway along with Danny Cummins. Knew about Cummins but didn't know Peter Cooke was gone?
