Look I think we are agreed that when the lads who are injured / rested ATM are available they will slot back into the first team . The replacements are doing only what we hope they can do . McHugh & Scully have shown glimpes of promise but in the cold light of day I know who I'd want to be playing . IMO Cian , James Mac , Cooper , Flynn , DC , Kev, Jack are irreplaceable . On form Paddy & Bernard too .I'm not mentioning Stevo or Fenton because they have no issues . So come championship we have the likes of Costello , McHugh , Lowndes , O'Gara , Mannion , Con on the bench with a few others . Its good to have Fitzy & Bryne duking it out . Small is a starter too . Kev , Paddy & Bernard might be fighting for a starting spot . I believe we have the strongest panel in the country but that's OK when the starting 15 are performing . 5 years down the line this team will look completely different . The replacements have to prove they are good enough , we have no choice , they are the future .
