Our Prediction:

Rhode will win

Rhode – Ferbane Match Prediction | 13-10-2019 10:30

A team could win two or three games of a four-game round-robin phase and be left in a relegation match while another team could get beaten four times on the trot and take a quarter-final place. This is not about predicting any results and by all means, the games left will be competitive but the fact that this is a possibility makes a mockery of the championship.

However, a quick look at some of the names available to Rhode - the McNamees, the Sullivans, the Darbys, Paschal Kelleghan, Roy Malone - and it"s hard to see a performance as poor as they put in against Shannonbridge being repeated. If both sides repeated their performance from last Sunday week, there would be every chance that Ferbane would get the four-point win that they need to guarantee their progression into the next round. Ferbane have rediscovered their pride and won"t concede an inch, but Rhode are still the class act in Offaly and should prove that once again on Sunday afternoon.

It all sounds fair enough until you break down the permutations. Without casting aspersions on any of the teams involved, it's possible for one team to lose all four of their round-robin games and still make it to a quarter-final by virtue of score difference over another winless rival in the same group.

Every Offaly success has brought a generous contribution from Rhode and the representation of five of the victorious panel of 1971 and 1972 this was the highest of any club. There were great battles with Rhode and Tullamore in the 1920s and early 1930s, the razor sharp rivalry with near neighbours Edenderry through the years to the most recent dominance of Offaly football 1998 to 2018. Rhode GAA Club was formed in 1888 and Rhode GAA is legendaryas once written by Offaly GAA historian John Clarke in an article entitled Rhode The Triumphant Erigena sums up what is the essence of Rhode GAA Club. Rhodes impact on Gaelic football has not confined to the domestic scene. The first in 1900 and the most recent in 2018 sees Rhode dominance continue so much so that we are now only one title behind county leaders Tullamore. More success followed through the early 1980s with another four representing the club in 1982 and returned again in 1997 and 1998 with Leinster and National Football League wins. The history of Offaly football is lavishly adorned with the contributions from Rhode. Rhode GAA have won 29 senior football championships which is a record that no other small village in the county could boast.

Doon aren"t firing on all cylinders by any means, but they scored 1-14 against Kilcormac/Killoughey last time out and Birr can only dream of scoring fifteen times in a single game. Doon to win by between two and three goals is the verdict. Birr can win this, but they"ll need to score at least two more goals than Doon do, possibly three. Doon warmed up for this match with a big league win over Daingean during which they scored four goals - scoring two or three more than that could prove difficult.

Offaly"s two midfielders, Ciaran McManus and Niall Smith, will do battle at midfield and both players are likely to play a big role, but Gracefield"s half-back and half-forward lines should win the battle for breaking ball and their greater scoring ability should be too much for Tubber to handle, as a club who find scoring more than twelve times extremely difficult. Gracefield should welcome back the two Fitzpatricks and that added firepower could give them the edge in what could be a very hard fought and entertaining game.

Rynagh"s could surprise a lot of people in this game, though Rovers" fighting spirit may see them sneak the draw that they need to stay in the senior ranks. Erin Rovers are competitive and committed team, but they don"t score freely, and if they can"t shake Rynagh"s loose early on, the men in hoops will grow in confidence. Players like Gary Mahon, Gary O"Connor and Stephen Wynne are well able to take a score, while if either of the Rafferty brothers can put the shackles on Alan Lynam, Rovers will find scores very hard to come by.

Fast forward on to today and while nobody would try to argue that the two teams are equal on paper, Rhode appeared hesitant and uncertain against Shannonbridge, while Ferbane found their championship rhythm in a real ding dong battle against Tullamore. Two weeks ago this fixture would have been the easiest prediction since Scotland played Estonia in Tailinn without the Estonians on the field. Rhode had beaten Tullamore in the first round while Ferbane had folded meekly to Shannonbridge in the first round and the two clubs looked a world apart.
