Agreed but it’s very poor start. After one game we’re now completely out of the running for promotion and facing the prospect of hidings from Galway & Limerick. Assuming we do manage to finish 4th (iffy assumption!) we then face prospect of hiding from team that finishes first in 1A. Already looking like 2018 is going to be writeoff.
Cuala lads and injured players will make a difference but strength of panel overall is weak. That presumably is something that Gilroy is trying to address but between recent challenge games, Walsh Cup and last night it’s clear we’re seriously short.
