The result wasn't great in Portlaoise yesterday, I'm sure you all agree but seeing as Donegal beat Armagh we weren't going up anyway. I think this perception played a part in our first half display yesterday. What I did find disappointing though was a lack of discipline from our boys. Yes, the referee was a bit of a disaster but if he has signaled his intent by showing Benny a black card for dissent/ abuse early on and was consistent in moving the ball forward up to 20 yards for questioning his decisions - why were our boys still giving him lip into the second half? Very frustrating.
Positives being decent performances from Carr and Maginn and 70 minutes under Rodgers' belt before the championship.
