Of the lads above not currently involved with the seniors there are only a few that might improve the 26 and all seem to be forwards. Obviously there is plenty of time for the 21s to improve and generally defenders get better with age so no panic.
One not listed there that was a very good minor is Elliot from Ballymun, not sure if he was injured for the final or just didn’t get on. I know he was a sub for most of the campaign.
It will be interesting to see the match-ups in the middle next Monday between Vins and Mun. Vins have been going with Mullins and Galvin who are both very mobile so you would imagine Mullins will take McCarthy and Galvin will be on Elliot given the age and experience similarities.
