Best of luck to the minor team and management tonight. Interesting to see the representation of clubs on the minor team in comparison to the senior team.
No players from St Brigid's, Clan na Gael or Boyle on the starting 15. Great to see young lads from various Intermediate and Junior clubs getting a chance to represent their county. Hope it goes well for them.

I fear Mayo are going to walk Connacht this year. They have been really strong at u15 two years ago & u16 last year.

That struck me about the representation from the clubs as well. There are two Casey's from Ballinameen starting, two players from St. Croans, two from St Ciaran's and a lad from Shannon gaels. I suppose it's a gaa strength of Roscommon that while we're a small county population wise, Gaelic football is played all over the county and players can be sourced for the county team from any parish and that doesn't necessarily hold true for all counties. Never easy to go to McHale Park but hopefully we can get something out of there tonight.

Mayo U17s with a deserved win, attacked and defended better than us and didn't have the same issue on kick outs as you.

Killer was us conceding 1-3 in 3 minutes after we had levelled the match. Looked like we were going to face a harsh 10 point defeat but credit to the lads they kept plugging away and we scored 1-1 which could have been another goal or two.

Galway next in Hyde park need to bounce back with improved 60 minute performance they drew with Sligo tonight.

Galway equalised in the last minute or so.
Mayo seem to be the bees knees altogether.
We need to concentrate on getting enough points to make a semi at worst and see how it goes then.

Adequate performance by Roscommon. They lost the crucial half back, midfield, and half forward battles. Players played out of their normal positions all over the place, which led to a lack of cohesion in the play. Halfbacks lost so much ball carrying the ball into the tackle. Roscommon got back into the game by halftime but didn't seem to have the belief in the second half that they could win it. The pick of Roscommon players were the forwards Casey and Curran, and Kennedy in midfield, who put in a gallant effort in trying to curb Mayo's star man, Kobi McDonald. Hopefully Roscommon can move the ball around quicker against Galway as the full forward line is the strongest line for Roscommon.
