Isn't this basically a warm up tournament, so it is the place to try lads out, there would be a big squad involved so no sense in sticking to same team for these type of matches

Yeah it's a prep tournament. So good idea to see what lads can do.

Good observation. Do you have a kick out strategy?

Not sure why my query regarding how the under 20's got on merited a thumbs down from someone but I am sure that it takes all types on these fora.

I was at the game on Saturday. Finished 0-14 0-10 in our favour. To be honest, no one player stood out but the whole lot of them had to grind out the win. Condtions were awful particularly in the first half. We played into the wind in the first half but still went in ahead at half time. Started off well but lost our way for a spell when Liam Byrne went off injured. This allowed Laois back into it. In the second half we regained control and saw the game out quite comfortably. I dont have exact scorers to hand but Luke Mitchell definitely kicked 6 or 7 points, mostly frees. Scores were not easy to come by so his accuracy was key. Some others who did well were Cathal Hickey, Sean Ryan and Jack Flynn when he moved out to midfield in the second half. He has a bit of size and threw himself around a bit, which was needed. Laois had around 10 players starting from last years Leinster U20 final, and our lads were without those involved with the seniors. A win v Kildare on Saturday will qualify them for the final against Cork.

Just one type. But he has been outed. Just ignore him and his 7 other accounts. Total tool.
