It was a strange feeling coming out of game. If someone told me in May that we’d win our QF by an extremely comfortable 10 pts against a seasoned Div1 team, I’d have been very happy to hear that. But leaving the game I was a bit disappointed. We didn’t show the same killer instinct that we have in previous years under Gavin. That should have been a comfortable 20+ victory. This worries me. Monaghan were shocking, 5mins in you could see how this was going to pan out. I’m sure their supporters are extremely disappointed, these players are better than that, but they have a serious lack of belief.
On a more positive note, great to see MDMA and Flynn back. We are entering Semi Finals with no suspensions and no new injuries (that I’m aware of) and with one of the best players of the last decade to be added to squad. The step up in standard from teams played to date to Trone is seismic
