A bit later getting going today and it’s a nice Easter Monday up here in the capital weather-wise so I don’t intend to be chained to the laptop for long. Long enough, though, to do a quick gallop through the reports on yesterday’s back in yer box win over the Rossies. Here’s the collection:
The one bit I’d draw your attention to from all the above is that quotes piece in the Mayo Advertiser in which Stephen Rochford confirmed that Ger Cafferkey was withdrawn yesterday due to an injury involving his “hamstring into his groin.” Ger’s been in cracking form all spring but he’s got to be a doubt for the Down game. At least Kevin Keane is back and so could slot in there next Sunday.
Stephen also confirmed in that piece that Donal Vaughan isn’t at full tilt yet with the calf problem that’s been at him for some weeks now. What a luxury it was, then, to have a player of Paddy Durcan’s calibre in reserve yesterday. I’d say the Mitchels flyer will get the nod to start there on home turf the next day.
That’s your lot, enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday and don’t forget to vote in the Man of the Match poll if you haven’t yet done so. Evan Almighty seems to have this one in the bag – he was the TG4 MOTM yesterday – but, as the saying goes, every vote counts. Back later with the result.
