Dropping down to 1B would be a disaster. Although this might not be on cards if anyone can confirm where all this league restructure talk is coming from? I did read today that Offaly lost all games except one and are now in a league quarter final.
Anyway - considering we should have been able to close out the last match with Clare and that we have a stronger squad now with the Cuala lads back i would expect us to win this.
All of the Division 1 quarter-finals must finish on the day. If the teams are level at full-time, extra-time of two period of ten minutes will be played.
If the teams are still level, an additional two periods of five minutes each way will be played.
If the teams are still level after that, then a free-taking competition will decide the outcome. Each team will nominated 5 free-takers who must be chosen from players who have participated in the game, either in normal time or in one of the periods of extra-time.
Frees would be taken by each of the five players from a position of their choosing on the ’65 metre line and the takers must go for points only.
The game is won by whichever team scores more of their five frees. If still level, then sudden death frees will be taken using the same 5 players in the same order until such time as there is a definitive outcome.
