Meath boss Eamonn O'Brien is aware of the threat of relegation from Division Two of the NFL after his new look team lost again, this time at home to Fermanagh on Saturday night by a score of 2-7 to 0-12. Hit hard again by the new experimental rules, the Royals ended the match with 13 players and never recovered from conceding two first-half goals. "It wouldn't be the end of the world to be relegated but it wouldn't be nice. Hopefully we can get a couple of wins later on," said O'Brien. "The new rules take a lot of physical contact out of the game. The goals left us a bit to do in the second half but we battled back and could have got a draw."
