we should be very worried about the standard of underage county squads in football and hurling from recent reports I have heard.

Wouldn't read too much into it, I'm sure they were missing a good few with minor semi finals on. Kildare will always trouble us based on their advanced physical preparation at all underage groups.

Doesnt help that most of our U16 club teams are knocked out of championship football since the end of August

It's a farce playing this competition in October. Why not play it in the summer, as it used to be, when lads are off school, the weather is good and the pitches are hard.

Anyone got a team list with clubs - big ask I know. Don't see anything in local press. Very poor coverage of these non-championship underage county games. Who are the team mentors ?
