Congrats to Donna, a good reward for her longevity and her commitment... I always felt she lacked a little bit of pace but she is very determined and lives for it, works extremely hard and will be a good example I'd imagine.

Spot on there Ogie but if Ash was going to lose the captaincy Donna was the only other option.

I presume it was just a case of changing it around... Dunno what type of a leader Ash was, but she would have led by example anyway... Donna will do the same.

I'm not dogging Donna, I really admire her as a footballer and have seen club games where she was the most dominant player on the field bar none. But I feel that pace is a weakness at the top level of inter-county, or maybe it's nimbleness more than pace. Everyone has weaknesses after all. Luckily for Donna, she has a lot of strengths.

yeah, fair enough, that's what I meant, nimbleness, speed of turning... anyway, I don't want it to seem like I'm criticising her unnecessarily... if all the county's top players had shown her commitment in the past, the senior team would be in better nick... some turnaround in the relationship between Donna and Paul though as they didn't get on that well at all in year 1... shows he doesn't carry a grudge I suppose

It's a good move on his part.... Knits all the fragmented elements together in one blow.... She won't be afraid to speak her mind either....

I think its a fair comment Ogie. Donna wud be reasonably quick over 20-30 yard in a straight line. She is not the quickest on the team as others hinted and she is not good on the turn. She gets drawn into some terribly silly fouls and forgets the non contact. But shes as worthy a candidate that was left.

There is NO WAY she will knit the factions tho. The divides in this squad go too deep for a girl like Donna to solve.
Theres one trouble maker who was brought back this year that nobody could deal with. Why shes there is beyond me.

Would common sense not dictate that a player should be playing for her club and playing well to make her eligible for the county panel??
