Hurling Championship 2018


#922

Feeling the pressure methinks. Compare that to Canning’s sideline cut a minute before. Not a bother.


#923

19 wides. Clare were never gonna win with that many sides.


#924

Galway by a point. Clare a mess in the last few minutes.

Limerick will give them their fill of it.


#925

Clare threw it away


#926

Yep they did. 6 and 7 points in each half. Very poor.


#927

Is there a name for that kind of object?

Galway only put up 8 points after the goal or have I that wrong? Goal was in the 21st min, there was about ten mins extra time in the match that’s almost an hour playing time.


#931

That’s about right. They were shocking from the 20th minute on. Limerick have a great chance.


#932

I’d fancy limerick in this one. Galway are falling off as games go on, limerick have the bench to take advantage of that. They also have a team of players with u21 all Ireland medals, so they’ll have no fear in 2 weeks


#933

Limerick all the way. Don’t have some of Clares talent but better structure and conviction. Ultimately its a pity its not a Clare-Limerick final but the win will be that bit sweeter now for L.


#934

Have to disagree. I think Galway will win it. They are not playing that well but still know how grind out a win when things go against them. Limerick are a very young side and will not have come come up against such a physical side as Galway.
Really don’t think their forwards will be allowed the same space by the Galway backs as Cork gave them.


#935

I would love to see limerick do it.


#936

Limerick are bigger, stronger and tougher than Clare. That will matter.


#937

They are but it might play into Galway’s hands to some degree.


#938

Both 1B as well, which is curious.


#939

There’s been no connection between the league and championship now for a while.


#940

Watched it back this evening . Think i picked out two or three chances where Clare might have won it ( O’Donnell goal chance ) or leveled ( Duggan mis hitting the free at the end / dropped a shot in low ).

Think galway stumbled over the line here .They might not be that fortunate in the final.


#941

They had a disaster of a first half - 2 points from play in 37 minutes of hurling and 19 wides overall. Over the two games, almost 3 hours of hurling, they were only ahead for 1 minute! Yes of course they could have sneaked at the death but Galway were the better team, I think. Of course Limerick are in with a real good chance, but it will be very hard for a young inexperienced side to come from1B and win an All Ireland at their first attempt.
