Only a few months ago Meath made a fresh start with the introduction of a lot of new players but by the end of this game, a lot of the players who had shown promise against Kildare had been substituted.

This shows they need a lot more time to be ready for this type of battle. They need to muscle-up for the demands of modern day inter-county football.

The foundations of the Laois win were set down early, with a dominant midfield performance for most of the first half.
