U21 B Hurling 2014...Preview

posted 2 Feb 2014, 10:13 by Garret Byrne   [ updated 2 Feb 2014, 10:17 ]

This years U21 B Hurling Championship will kick start the club hurling scene, with many teams eyeing the top prize.
This championship can often throw up a surprise winner, or at least a surprise team who cause a few upsets, and this year can be the very same. The format is quite simple really – each team will play 2 matches – win 2 and you’re in the quarter-finals, win one and you are in the preliminary quarters, while win none and you are out!

This year’s championship, as always, is a hard one to call, but there are still a few serious contenders. The main challengers are probably Killimordaly, Oranmore-Maree, Abbeyknockmoy, Kilconieron and Liam Mellows. In saying that, a lot can change for clubs in a year, not to mention 3 years since they were minors.  
Here is how the 16 teams fared in the last 3 relevant championships for them – the Minor from 2011, Minor from 2012, and U21 last year in 2013. It may not help much, but at least gives idea of where each team is coming from.

The best thing is to probably let the games begin and see who comes out on top!

(Thanks to our guy on the stats!)
