Club Talk

Ballyhale boss rings Shefflin before big win | Boro flop | Crowe Munster appeal | Verney Icebergers

Ballyhale’s huge win over Dicksboro, Davy Fitzgerald helping Sixmilebridge to Clare glory, semi-finals in Offaly, Laois and Galway, and more

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney look at Ballyhale’s huge win over Dicksboro, Davy Fitzgerald helping Sixmilebridge to another Clare title, semi-finals in Offaly, Laois and Galway, and all the big discussion points.

Ballyhale were as impressive as ever in waltzing their way to a Kilkenny three-in-a-row on Sunday.

The question posed on today’s Club Talk: Hurling is of the challenge posed by Dicksboro.

The game was over from early doors as TJ Reid and Co added scores at their ease, while the Boro too often sent aimless deliveries into their forward line for little return.

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney break down the final, while the latter speaks of his experiences playing for Birr in an Offaly semi-final against St Rynagh’s and how he turned to ice cream afterwards.

Glen Rovers will meet Blackrock in a Cork final for the first time in 42 years, with the Rockies seeing off UCC in their final-four clash.

Should a college team replete with county stars from across the country be allowed to compete in a local championship, and what does this add to the Rebel cause?

Cappataggle went through heartache once more as they lost a fourth semi-final in a row in Galway, this time to three-in-a-row chasing St Thomas’.
