On An Incredible Day Of Sport, You Probably Missed The Most Amazing Result

On An Incredible Day Of Sport, You Probably Missed The Most Amazing Result

What a day of sport Saturday was. Ireland steamroll Italy in Rome, with CJ Stander and Craig Gilroy each scoring a hat-trick. Then England and Wales play out an absolute belter in Cardiff before we flick on the GAA and the National League gives us a couple of belters in Dublin v Tyrone and Mayo v Kerry. Aside from all that there was Daryl Horgan and Aiden McGeady absolutely tearing it up for Preston in the Championship as well as all the Premier League action. Not to mention Slaughtneil beating St Vincent's!

But, amongst all that, you probably missed what may have been the biggest shock of the day. While all that was going on, the Carlow minors were quietly taking care of Dublin in their first game in the Leinster Minor Football League.

Credit to Carlow, as Roy Keane might say. Looks like the Barrowsiders have a good crop of young players there. Results like this will chip away at any sort of aura Dublin teams might hold for young players from other counties coming up through the ranks - and that can only be good for the game in Leinster.

It will be interesting to see how the teams fare if they meet in the Championship later on in the year.
