Dublin Senior Hurling B Championship (SHC B) 2018


#245

It’s a big step up for sure, I was impressed with faughs hurling, some work probably needed fitness wise.


#246

Problem with them is that they are going to be the 4th seeded team in their group so are going to be up against it from the start and realistically their chance is to beat the 3rd seeded team in their group which will be one of either Craobh , Whitehall, Setanta or O’Tooles which won’t be easy for them.


#247

But are they wristy enough …


#248

Surely with the team they have Whitehall should be pushing for quarterfinals next year


#249

I don’t think they seed the club championship draw. This year Cuala, BBSE, Craobh and Brigids were all in the one group despite all 4 of them being in the quarter finals the previous year.


#250

Yeah it’s only the semi finalists that are seeded.
So is the possibility of some lobsided groups like this season.


#251

Correct.
It should be from semi’s but der ya go


#252

With what players do you reckon from your knowledge of AHL 2 and all levels below


#253

My mistake for some reason I thought that’s what way they did it maybe it was the group we were in last year that had my thrown off as we were in a group with a semi finalists, 1/4 finalists, a 3rd place side and then a newly promoted side/ team that won the relegation playoff


#254

They’ll need a sympathetic draw for sure.


#255

Bennett looked decent in that game.


#256

Faughs should give Leinster a good rattle I think, they should have no problem beating the dub inter winners in the playoff. Be interesting to see what price they are in the bookies…


#257

Definitely should beat marks or cuala , last year when T.D beat raheny in the playoff there wasn’t much of a difference in class but faughs are senior A standard so I’d fancy them to win handy enough


#258

I forgot there is No playoff if cuala win as their a second team.


#259

Would that not mean marks automatically get into the playoff against faughs ?


#260

No there is no playoff if cuala win and rightly so.


#261

I see Faughs Leinster match is now down for 130pm in Parnell on Sat along with the Dublin U16 A hurling final between Thomas Davis and Castlenock at 3pm.


#262

Thats a novel pairing for an A final.

Who are Faughs playing?


#263

Ballinamere from offaly.


#264

And the U16 B final between Cuala and Nh Barrog at 1.15!!! :confused::face_with_raised_eyebrow:
