This is well overdue, given that the provincial championships are nearing their conclusion while the qualifiers are up and running, but better late than never.
The battle to be the prediction champion of this Sam Maguire campaign is heating up nicely too. There’s only 30 points separating the top five contestants and with loads of matches still to play this summer there are plenty of opportunities for charging up and sliding down the table.
Mark Ryan holds a narrow two-point lead at the minute but Darren Madden and Tom Sweeney are in hot pursuit just a few points back. I started the campaign very badly but have since recovered a bit of ground, though I’m still down in 24th. Another summer of mid-table mediocrity, then?
Here’s the mini-league leaderboard as it stands right now.
