Good luck to the lads this weekend. Should be a tight game and hopefully we come out on top. Hope we get a good crowd, but highly doubt it.

Hope we get a good result this weekend. Any team news ahead of the Derry game. I don't believe there were any injury concerns from the Armagh game.

Should be a close game as they always are. This is a very young Derry team that got some good exposure against the likes of Laois, Carlow, Westmeath etc. in the league which will stand by them come tomorrow, but I feel that Down might have that extra little experience to get over the line. Hope I'm right and we move on and get another crack at the Kingdom.

Down played well to day and did not just rely on magie and dull for scoring, they look to have good bench subs played well turley vey good with goal and point, finty played well at full forward young coyle no match for derry no6 and jonny mc cusker scored good goal great burst of speed with him and very strong looking. think all subs that came on should start next time out. WELL DONE DOWN HURLERS

GREAT result today which was well deserved. DREADFUL conditions but the team coped. Great to have good subs to bring on and the management clearly know what they are doing as the bench was used so very effectively. BIG congratulations to players and to Gerard and the rest of his management team. The time spent on development is beginning to pay dividends. Next up Meath and although they beat us in the League, that was our first game of the season and we did not have a full squad then. they all deserve their day in Croke so here's hoping next week goes our way. Would be nice to see a bit more support but those who were there today did a great job in cheering the team on. Well done everyone.

Has Trim been confirmed as a venue, surely Navan is the county pitch

Páirc Tailteann is Meath's county ground, but Meath hurling games are always played at St. Loman's Park in Trim. Trim is the home of Meath hurling and they have over 25 county senior titles. It will be a tough place to win, but if we can get out off the block quickly like we've been doing then we 'll have a great chance. Looking forward to the game. Meath are very physical, we are in better shape than the previous meeting back in the league.

Can't make the game in Trim, hopefully Facebook will have live updates. We are in a better position compared to when we last meet in the league. Come on Down Hurlers do yourselves proud.
