GAA Matters : Last Saturday our national broadcaster decided to show it's first live national league game . Why did it take so long to do so? The market was crying out for it and it came at a perfect time as the rugby finished. TG4 are and remain the trend setters for all things GAA promotion. With club games ,underage , and national league they do a job that the GAA themselves seem totally unaware of.

Last Man Standing : Anyone who was knocked out at the weekend has a chance of a buy back of €5. Contact Kieran Geary and Terence McSweeney to avail of the opportunity before Saturday.

Fixtures :Ten years ago on the Sunday Game an interview with the then Director General, he was asked about the most important things at the time. Urbanisation, Club Fixtures and respect for referees at underage were his three issues. I'm going to focus on fixtures here. He stated " We wished players to get a regular program of fixtures". Uncertainty is the biggest bane in this. When the first three group fixtures were provisionally fixed has the rest of the championship dates been made? They are about four scenarios with regards to Waterford's hurling schedule .
1 Elimination from Munster Championship as fourth or fifth in the group.
2 Third place finish meaning pre quarter final game , quarter final and all the way to All Ireland
3 Munster Final appearance . Win into a semi and knocked out or All Ireland Final appearance. Loss Munster Final, Quarter Final appearance and knock out there after.

Cater Waterford's progression in the football championship and the under twenty one hurling progression your looking at ten altercations to fixtures but these could all be cater for in a master fixture list . Players and mentors can't live off the undetermined summer months. They would like to plan for holidays , weddings etc.. An assertive yearly master plan is needed all round.

Operation Transformation Walk : The numbers are increasing and come join again in the collective walk on Thursday 7pm at the clubgrounds.
