I suspect sylane will win it comfortablely as the tommies have weakened due to players playing senior.
Will be good if sylane make it to intermediate, there long enough trying!

I predicted an easy win for Sylane but not to this degree. Tommies were very poor and showed little apetite for the battle.

Well dome to Sylane, and all the best in the All Ireland semi. Finish the year off now with the All Ireland!!

Well done to Sylane. Well deserved winners. I hope they can go on now and finish of their campaign with a trip to Croke Park in Feb. I was there at Senior match and waited on and if they play like they did last Sunday will take some stoppping. They can do Galway Hurling proud.
Junior A Champions, Junior 1 Champions, Connacht Champions and please god All Ireland Junior Champions before they start their Intermediate Campaign.

Was at the game sunday and quite a few Sylane lads impressed me. Cathal Burke is a tenacious centre back while Shane Glynn and Oran Martin are wristy to say the least. The men from north galway will hopefully fly the black and amber flags high over the shannon and return worthy champions in the new year. A fantastic achievment for a small club with very little pick, kudos to them.

on a sperate point, I reckon these young men are not far off the senior ranks with Galway. They have the skill and the power and looked like men vs boys in the junior championship. Anything to be said for a call up?

Christ, lets see how they get on next year in intermediate before jumping to galway call ups and senior hurling.
No doubt they will be well competitive in the intermediate ranks

Sylane where the best team in Jun A this year, but easy now Galwayman98, first of all a very small pick? Sure they have 3/4 clubs to pick from plus lads from Shrule , so lets not lose the run of yourself.They look better equipped this year to reach the All Ireland final with Kevin Brady back in the ranks, at tat level one man can make a difference and it can be seen in the latter stages of the championship.Well done to them , dont think anyteam got near them all year.

They actually lost their first championship match by 14pts.

True, but thats when Senior clubs have an advantage of having up to 6 regrades playing, except for Breathnachs in Junior 1 final they sailed through

I'm told they did little training until July this year when they went all out from then on. Focused on physical work which is very evident. The game against Mellows was first time they played all year. Junior hurling drags on so long you need to peak at business end as they did.

Congrats to Sylane, without doubt the best team in Junior this year & will be competitive in Intermediate next year. The may have 3/4 clubs to choose from but these clubs are Senior Football teams. There is no one from Corofin Seniors playing with them & Only Brady from Kilconly. The bulk of the team are locals from Sylane & Caherlistrane (the next village over) Good luck to them in the AI series in the new year.
