    The Punter is usually the holder for field kicks which is also a pretty specialised position. The ball comes flying back and needs to be precisely placed with Laces out (Ace Ventura)

    Earlier this season the Titans Punter got injured and it was almost as bad as kicker getting injured as the back up holder was a QB and fcked up a critical attempt at the end.

    The Irish Lad Dan Whelan is punter for Packers is also holder for kicks. Was on a pod a few weeks ago talking about the pressure

    What a performance by Monaghan. So many debutants, written off by everyone, 2/7 for relegation before season started. :D

    Great game that. Fenton has more than enough in the bank to be forgiven for the cough up at the death. Good blow out for both teams.

    I always have to laugh when players say the “we were written off all week” line and they about 1/10 favourites to beat the opposition but it totally applies for Monaghan!
    They are written off for the league every year. O’Hanlon looks quality.

    Could you imagine the headlines if David Clifford scored a hat trick against Dublin?

    I'd like to see Clifford try his hand at the small ball and pick up a few club titles before he comes after "King Con".
