This time yesterday morning I was out barrelling along on the bike in the midst of what would prove to be a rather brisk 85 km spin in the verdant East Mayo countryside. Sadly it’s into the car with the bike shortly for the drive back to Dublin. Not before doing a quick ramble, however, through the match reports on yesterday’s Connacht championship opener against London over in Ruislip. Here goes.
There’s not a whole pile, it must be said, to detain you for long in that lot. Lookit, sure it was only a preliminary round match which seemed to have more of an air of a social get-together for the Irish community in London than it did a full-on championship encounter. This would appear to be reflected in the fairly thin post-match coverage on the game, as well as the brief treatment it got on The Sunday Game last night.
Never mind – the Galway clash is coming rapidly down the tracks at us and I’d say there’ll be a good deal more to digest after that one. For now, the above meagre pickings will have to do.
Right, I’ve some driving to be doing. Don’t forget to cast your vote in the MOTM poll if you haven’t yet done so, back later on with the result of that one.
