      Boh's and Fethard drew 13 all. Garryowen beat Clanwilliam 34-15. Crescent beat Galbally 18-0. Thomond beat NCW 34-0. That's all the results I'm aware of.
      On the internet, you can be anything you want. It always amazes me why so many people choose to be stupid.

          Whats the issue? I think the new format of home and away is good.

            Agreed.
            No issues, Woggas, just disillusionment with emigration, the price of fuel, decimated teams and clubs. So there.

              Yeah I think the home and away format is good. Are the A & B sections randomly drawn out?

              Woogas I see Old Crescent have started very strongly. They must have a strong squad do you know?

                I've no clue as to how they divided up the teams. I presume they took the traveling to county teams into account, but that's just guess work. The home and away format works really well, mainly because your season can be over if you lose two games in the old format, so it keeps lads interested. The format over the last few years has been almost like two seasons. You have the McInerney cup first up and then the league, then there was a break after Christmas to the Webb cup, which didn't start until end of February or early March.

                Its really tough these days isn't it. Going through lists of players and so many of them playing in NZ, Aus, the US and Canada, it's kinda disheartening. However, rugby is booming in Dublin, they are fielding down to J4/J5. Speaking to the Bruff lads a few weeks ago, they targetted getting lads from GAA clubs and soccer teams.

                  Yeah thats probably it, seems like the logical thing to do and divide the county teams evenly. True, with 14 games in the league, it means that you can afford to lose a few games, and it also gives lads plenty of chances of gametime.

                  I reckon one of the big success factors in Dublin is the opportunity to play as many games as possible under lights, leaving lads have their weekend free and still are getting a match in whether it be Friday night or a midweek match (depending on teams availability). I for one would much rather play more games under lights. Looking across the 2 groups, and which teams have lights to play matches under (Correct me If I am wrong)

                  Newcastle West- Lights
                  Thomond- Lights
                  St Marys- Lights
                  Old Crescent- Lights
                  Bruff- Lights (I think)
                  Galbally- Not sure
                  Presentation- Not sure
                  Shannon-Lights


                  Division B
                  UL Bohemian- Lights
                  Ennis- Lights (I think)
                  Kilfeacle and District - Lights
                  Fethard & District- Not sure
                  Garryowen
                  - Lights
                  Clanwilliam- Not sure
                  Young Munster- Lights
                  Richmond- Will have them in the next month I believe

                  I'm sure I got some wrong, but it would be great to see more and more weekday matches, or at least a good mixture of midweek/weekend games

                      Asked this on the Junior league thread, but didn't get a reply. Did Senans drop out of the Gleeson League?

                        I think 14 fixtures are a bit much in the league. Friday night rugby is the way forward though.

                          We'll only really know whether it works or not later on in the league. Hopefully it works, because it can be a great way to get newer players playing rugby.

                            Bruff have lights. Clan have lights at Collegelands but not in main ground. Fethard have lights but cant remember standard of lights and they mightnt be good enough to play games under
                            More games under lights would be good. Difficult for a lot of clubs to play mid week but where possible it should be looked at.

                              Yeah, it would be ideal to have more and more games played under lights where it is feasable, ie Local matches where the home team has proper lights for it. Look at the success of those kind of matches in Dublin. I know its not the only reason for the improvements in Dublin, but it is definately a part of it...

                              It is hard to tell if 14 games is too many, but its definitely a good way of giving guys who havent played before a chance to get gametime
