Armagh imploded in the second half against St Mary’s by all accounts on Saturday. disappointing for the boys.

After so many years in the wilderness just glad we are 'competitive' again. Still was gutting when Mick McGrath went over.

So long as we beat Garryowen.

4/4 for us.... 20/20

Best start to a season in years. Really good vibe about the place at the moment.

Real tough one to take.... first two games

Lansdowne away...didn't show up. Fair enough

Clontarf at home.... they are just ridiculously strong. Beat blackrock by 80 last week..

But honestly, even thought we've lost our 8 to badly broken arm was confident. We started so well but couldn't covert pressure.

Honestly they got Into our 22 like 5/6 times and got 4 tries and a penalty. We spent ages down there just lack of composure.
Finished 31-22

Made mince meat of their scrum, not sure I've see one as dominant at that level ... just lack of experience I guess. Disappointing but stepped up performance. Just can't turn off at this level.

PD was excellent as usual. Scrum cap on and all!

Surprised considering our coaching staff at how naïve we are.

It's great that we run everything but sometimes you have to play the fúcking conditions.

DS did well, short of match fitness.

We play UCD this weekend - but Blackrock at home the following weekend (the 11th) prob the best one to catch.

Not surprising as he hasn't done anything since April. He's a fine player.

Has played a few pre season games to be fair - but we are taking our time with him too. Obvious reasons.

I know he is 20s next year too but wouldnt be surprised to see PD involved with our 1s - just for training and experience - sooner rather than later.

Could very much do with backing that win up.

Hopefully the lads will have their dander back up someway.

I've heard Midleton are good - making a right crack at it this year. Got some good lads in from Waterpark and Dolphin.

It's across the board. Very few older lads playing at that level anymore and more significantly, few of those older lads play down the club teams either.

It's a bit better down the country but not like the old days when we fielded 5 teams! It got to the stage where we were doing well to field 1 but back up to 2 comfortably. We used get lads from the army, guards and banks but that all dried up. A good youth set up is vital. Are senior teams are a mixture, lads in their teens up to lads in their mid thirties.

Our 4/5s are nearly exclusively older lads to be honest- 2/3s is younger

And then 1s is obviously a mix depending on ability etc

When I started playing Marys used to put out 9 senior teams and then still have lads who didn't get a game. As I have said before in my 1st season, played in a cup final for the 7ths where one of our wingers went on to play for Ireland 2 years later against the All Blacks. The first team would have had plenty of lads late 20's early 30's. Unless you were exceptional Mal O'Kelly/Sexton you did not get near the firsts.
A couple of years ago they were struggling to put out 5 Senior teams with no J3 team until one of older lads got a load of old lads out of retirement to play J3. I would say I played 7 years after anyone else from my year and that would have only been 1/2 players max.
It was interesting I was down the club last week and talking to one of blazers who was giving out that Ballymena played 6 interpro players against us (I am guessing academy lads), no real sympathy as I am sure we would have done the same if had those players available to us.

Yeah the lads were delighted.

I suspect they were caught on the hop that this is a decent side struggling for form rather than a bad one.

I didn't think ye had anything to worry about as the three below ye and Derry are all pretty weak. Tullamore beating Bangor was a bit of a surprise.

We beat Tullow in a high scoring game.

Bananaman, I heard that ye gave the students a good rattle but some handling errors cost you badly.

I am sick over it..... one that got away.

Lost 27-22 - got the double bonus. They had Michael Milne rolled out and both our props (your boy and our sub) sowed into him. But got the points.

Should have won..... it is coming. Blackrock next week. Lot more poisitive - like we are missing 4 lads from our first choice pack too

Leinster Academy Manager was there too!

PD was borderline unplayable in the second half along with our winger who is a club lad.

You're not getting him back.

Huge loss really for them - mad to see Navan so dominant.
