2018 LSHC Round 2 - Wexford v Dublin, Innovate Wexford Park, Sunday May 20th, 3pm


#403

The tooth fairy told lots of small boys and girls that hurling superstar attacker Paul Ryan would set up the win against Wexico with an impossible goal, going backwards, over his shoulder, at an acute angle, with 3 monster backs and the goaly all over him…

By the way, any top county(or Wexford, and not Dublin)'s player gets that score and they would’ve been Sainted and conferred with Wrishty Cú Chulainn status immediately by the media’s hurling royalty.


#404

Good.


#405

If Galway only lose one of the games against Wex and Kilkenny and we beat them. The most likely scenario then is that us and Galway are level and we go through on head to head. Or that there would be 3 teams on the same points, then the score difference matters if that is the case and we might be in a good place because of the narrowness of our defeats. I think if we beat Galway we probably will qualify.


#406

If we do manage to beat Galway in Salthill and then NOT qualify it would be head wrecking for our players! Imagine beating all Ireland champions in their own back yard and getting eliminated! :scream:


#407

Well if we get eliminated despite beating Galway it would mean Offaly had beaten us too so that would be more head wrecking no - and the players could have no complaints??


#408

We’re going to beat the Shite out of Offaly so problem solved! :grinning:


#409

is it head to head or scoring difference if teams finish level? we are ahead of offal y on scores


#410

It’s head to head if there are two teams involved. But it goes to score difference of there are more then two teams on the same points.


#411

Why bother talking about Galway? We must play and beat Offaly…then we can talk about Galway.


#412

Exactly, we thought we would beat Offaly in Croker on the opening night of the league and look what happened there


#413

The manner of that defeat to Offaly in the league may well work out to our advantage next week!


#414

It will definitely be a motivator anyway


#415

Hopefully we can have Michael Deignan in tears again … for the right reasons this time …
