Dublin Senior A Hurling Championship (SHC A) 2018


#2033

They didn’t show it on TG4. TG4 can be very biased towards Dublin GAA. Watched Ballyhale game. Jeez Fennelly took some amount of steps for three of his four goals!!!


#2034

DJ used to take 10 or 11. When you are wristy, you are allowed to do that. Dubs are not allowed though.


#2035

Not yet. But it will be


#2036

It is a huge advantage when you do that. The defender is getting ready to tackle on the 4th step, but if the guy doesn’t play the ball the defender has to adjust his body and reset again. This gives the forward extra time to get his shot away. It is more then just a technical foul, it is often the reason the goal is scored (DJ being an excellent case in point).


#2037

Did he play any under age county hurling?


#2038

From watching last night he gets away with taking an awful lot of steps
His speed on the turn gets him away from players, it’s not exactly his skill shining through

I’d say that is his day in the sun to be honest


#2039

I think coming out 60/40 is a more realistic aspiration, most come out 80/20 against him


#2040

Who is the potential appointment?


#2041

Oh he was a dublin minor hurler. So this isn’t like Michael Darragh McCauley randomly deciding to pick up a hurl for his club.


#2042

Does MDM hurl? FFS another one robbed by the footballers, this is ridiculous …


#2043

Id say you have to be over 18 to watch MDMA hurl…


#2044

I don’t think so but not sure tbh.


#2045

:joy::joy:


#2046

Not but he famously autographed my lads hurl in the clubhouse!!!


#2047

Probably hurls as much as Colm Cooper.


#2048

Funnily enough, supposed to be a smashing hurling


#2049

Would you know how much Cooper hurls?


#2050

Have you heard about the other golden son of the KOTF? Monsieur Paul Galvin, and his skill set?


#2051

Ah but he’s from North Kerry, the home of hurling !
