Cuala were exceptional in the first 11-12 minutes, the game was clearly gone from BK.
The pitch was actually in great nick, the grounds staff must be credited for a lot of hard work getting it into such great shape.
Whilst Con O’Callaghan will get the credit, there was exceptional ball pucked into him.
BK had done their homework on Mark Schutte but didn’t realize Cuala had a secret up their sleeves. He actually has had a very good run of games and was selfless again yesterday.
Cuala are clinical in the tackle, their work rate is their, not so, secret weapon. Cuala backs were very good also, John Sheanon stood out as a player who’s bang on form.
Cuala were perhaps fortunate to win one or 2 of their Dublin Championship games, as there’s very little separating the top Dublin teams.
Would it be fair to say that Dublin’s top 4 teams would compete well in any of the perceived stronger counties?
As winter unfolds the heavier pitches may be a negative factor to Cuala’s progression, because of the type of game they play, but anyone who will beat them will probably win it outright.
Anyone got the latest odds?
