Laverty worried about consistency
Down’s attacking hopes this weekend are pinned on Conor Laverty. A small, speedy attacker who loves running at defences, he is the classic Mourne hit man. This week he fills Gaelic Life in on how he tried to get the inside line on Fermanagh, which Down player is the best craic, and why an Ulster title is the hardest, and best to win.
Ronan Scott: How will you be approaching this weekend’s game against Fermanagh?
Conor Laverty: It is like anything else, I am looking forward to the start of the Championship, that is why you train hard all season. The league is just preparation for the Championship. It is a different pace and intensity than the league, but I love playing Championship football. It is a great feeling.
RS: How do you think you played during the league?
CL: As a team we were a wee bit inconsistent in some of the games. We would be happy enough with the way we beat some of the bigger teams. But we were inconsistent against other teams. When we played to our potential we were happy enough.
