This years Hurling discussion 

Hopefully its Waterfords year 60 years since Liam came over the bridge. From the reports we have been playing pretty well in the pre season and all is well in the camp. We also have Ballygunner playing Ballyhale Shamrocks in the AI club semi final on the 9th Feb which they will hopefully get over the line but a very very tough challenge. 1B for us in the league and the big games been away too Dublin and home too Galway but with the new system coming in for 2020 promotion is not all that important. Yet again we dont knw where we will play our home games for the championship ConfusedConfused

Going to be a very competitive year in Hurling, so many teams capabile of winning the AI on there day and it will be dog eat dog during the summer

Whats the verdict on the club semi's?

Pick of them is Ballygunner v Ballyhale - Ballyhale for me. I didnt see anyone beat Na Pairsaigh in Munster so Ballygunner in bonus territory in my opinion.

St Thomas v Cushendall. Saw Thomas' twice in 2013 when they beat Loughgiel after a replay. They were class. Speed and Strength something else. I think they got relegated from Senior the year after winning an All Ireland and have come back and rebuilt. Id expect them to be strong. Cushendall I dont think have the forwards to bother them too much. Won an Antrim championship thats at a bit of a low ebb and got through Ulster probably as Slaughtneil are absolutely knackered! Cant see it being like the Sarsfields game back in 2015 - who must have been the worst side to ever emerge from Galway

I struggle to identify with this sentiment that is pushed about hurling being magnificent and football being awful : The truth is far more in the middle.

Hoping for Ballygunner too win but I think Ballyhale will have too much for them. When BG are bad there bad and the occasion might get too them but then again nobody fancied them vs NP and they won pulling up. 

Expect St Thomas on the other side but Antrim clubs are pretty good and won't lie down 

Interesting Question- is Ballygunner vs Ballyhale one of the closest AI club semi finals by distance between areas ???. There about a 30- 40min drive away from each other

Always gonna be a big problem for Waterford. One year is hardly a good sample but last season only 1 away win from 10 games in Munster. Home advantage seems to matter.

Waterford were unlucky last year, with both the injuries and format (their bye week in week 1).

As for my own crowd, Cork's league panel looks fairly simialr to last year, so probably will hit the same problem with a lack of depth. The young lads will be one year older so expecting them to be strong at the back/mids, but can't see them doing better than last year.

St Thomas haven't been relagated since winning the All Ireland club! On distance between teams I'm not sure about Semi-Finals but Kiltormer and Portumna both beat Birr in All Ireland club finals and they wouldn't far away from each other

Can't be many closer in hurling. In football, Garycastle from Westmeath against St.Brigits Roscommon a few years back is only 13k apart.

Ah. A Thomas man told me they were. Now. This was in an early house in Cork a while back and drink had been taken.

Not a million miles away they were in the relagation play off but won it! Maybe too much partying from the All Ireland win

we played in Thurles because of a violation of training rules during restricted winter months so we lost home advantage for that game only. all other home league games will be played in Waterford and Championship games according to the CB will be played in Walsh Park.  cant see our Munster Championship games being played in Walsh Park because our CB have no backbone but time will tell.

Is Walsh Park really any worse than Navan or Newbridge ? Seeing as both of those held Championship games last year.
