Dublin Senior Hurling 2019


#1338

Billings did, you are right… A very tough hurler, but not the most stylish. Used to catch the ball and then switch hands to hit it. But he was effective.


#1339

It’s great to bring them in, but hopefully he doesn’t intend to start 3 of them against top class opposition, like Cunningham did against Tipp a couple of years ago.


#1340

No I hear it’s just 2 get them used to the set up can’t see him playing any of them was just curious as to who they were.


#1341

Even younger then the ones Cunningham brought through. Not sure I see the benefit at this age but might just be giving them a taste


#1342

It can do nothing but benefit them Mattie obviously knows Dublin hurling and brought these players in get them on to programmes to build them get them used to training with hopefully in 2 or 3 years tat these lads will play with definitely benefits them.


#1343

I don’t they are younger Tayto - Burke. Smith, O Sullivan and maybe Whitley played just a few months after minor finished.


#1344

But minor was u18 at the time


#1345

Best bet would be to politely stand aside! I didn’t like him when he was with Vinnies but used to be on same bus to away hurling games and he was great crack. Loved listening into some of the scurrilous tales he would tell! When there was the proposal to bar UCD from SHC he said something on lines of: “Come out and break a few sticks across us. Don’t be whinging.” :grinning:


#1346

Ah yea, i doubt matie is going to throw them in, assume it’s a longer-term plan. I would like to see some of the last years u21s brought in as well (or in some cases retained).


#1347

:joy::joy: id say we all know the percentage chance of this happening…
We need that sarcastic like button !!!


#1348

Sorry mate I ment the last minor team that was under 18 my bad not last year’s under 17’s that’s why I was asking did anyone no who these players were


#1349

Ah right, i see, Ryan from Craobh maybe? or was he in the u17 team that year rather than the minor team … :joy:


#1350

No I’m sure Ryan from craobh played minor 2 or 3 years ago the team who were beating in Leinster final by Kilkenny


#1351

Any confirmation on a management team??


#1352

Ah, good point.


#1353

It was 2017 I think.


#1354

There’s is two Ryan’s billy and Conor, Both have played Dublin minor in the last 2 years and both have been called into the senior panel


#1355

Both very talented lads. Best of luck to them.


#1356

So has anyone else heard rumours? Few people back, some 2017 minors called up? anything else?


#1357

Young Gannon from Whitehall is one I believe
