McHugh would be lucky to make the 26 come championship, far too many good players ahead of him. He's just that little bit too slow to make an impact in the summer and he's unlucky enough that Galway are extremely strong in the forwards.

Replying To JDF:  "Any update on the Corofin lads who've opted in?

I don't recall Justin Leonard ever play minor or u21 for Galway, anyone know? I know Dylan Wall played minor in 2014 and think he was injured for part of the u21 campaign in 2017. Dylan Wall seems to have improved hugely in recent years and has become a very effect man marker, he reminds be a bit of a young Lee Keegan."
I'm 100% sure Justin Leonard hasn't played underage for Galway. He was too busy with golf over in the US.
Seriously, as someone else mentioned, underage isn't always the best indicator. Some lads mature physically and improve rapidly in their early 20s, whereas others peak very early and standout underage but don't progress as expected.

We are indeed. Jason Leonard the Corofin footballer, rather than the former English rugby player.

I agree about underage, just wondering if he had thats all. It was no dig.

We only have to look at Comer to see how he wasn't good enough for the minor team.

I'm not convinced about Leonard just yet and would be delighted to be proved wrong, think it might take him another 12 months of physical development but I was wrong on Sean Kelly who really surprised me last summer. I do think Dylan Wall is ready, think he offers something different to anyone else and can do a man marking job in the half back line as well as been a huge threat going forward.

What age is Leonard?

It is an awful pity that the club championship hinders the league and stops us trying lads out. Is it changing this/next year? i know there was talk about wrapping it up in one calendar year.

Are you sure he's in the county panel-himself and Mike Farragher played for Corofin friday night while Galway were training

They would hardly turn down an invitation to the galway panel. Molloy, Wall, Silke and Power didn't so why would Leonard and Farragher!

Well i'm not sure but if they did i'd be very dissapoonted they have no reason not to go into the panel and if it's because of Kevin Walsh that's just childish.

Replying To tommy k:  "If one was picking the 6 most in-form forwards in Galway right now they would include Sice, Leonard, Walsh, O'Laoi, Martin Farragher and Cummins. Sice is playing the best football of his career right now - if Sean Armstrong could come out of intercounty retirement a couple of years ago how about Gary?"
Tommy K . Just to show how you were calling out for Sice to return..

If in honest I personally don't think Garry Sice would want his name mentioned in the County set up anymore.
