I think it is a 20 point difference tbh. That team against Offaly weren’t of inter county standard, or at least enough of them weren’t, today was different.
It is difficult to explain, because I know the score line isn’t impressive, but I thought every player played well. I can’t think of one where their man got the better of them. Maybe the full back on Dillon, but that is about it. I think the closeness of the score was due to the narrowness of the pitch, so no player ever had space and also Ryan not being on the frees at the start or at the end ( he was subbed about 15 min from time). He was 100% for frees and I would think Burke about 60%).
But seeing Surcliffe, Keaney, Rushe and even Burke grab the ball out of the air was very encouraging. The half back line were super and I thought the full back line did well, until Antrim put a big lad in there that did some damage.
