I have to agree with everything you said ABC. What a game. Scoring was top class. The commitment from both teams was immense but Crumlin's superior intensity won the day. First time ball into the inside forward line had Boden all over the place. Don't forget this is the same full back line who destroyed Cuala just last week. The Keaney/Quinn tussle was worth the admission fee. Keaney struggled with Quinns unbelievable speed/skill but in fairness to him he battled hard to hang on. Alex Quinn was brilliant throughout, his scoring was only 40% of the story. The hit he put on Hiney [ totally legal- although other weak Refs may have blown for it, and we still wonder why we get pushed about at inter county level ] set the tone for the match and what Crumlin where bringing to the game. Question; Why is Conor Murphy not in the Dublin team? his speed/strength/first touch/vision is top inter county standard. He controlled the Boden full forward Aiden Mellet all evening, Mellet destroyed Cuala the last day.
Thank God the county board don't listen to this site otherwise Crumlin/Finbarrs would be in the B championship and not exposed to senior A, to develop.
The Kilkenny model is thrown up each year but I'm sure they have had some cricket scores in it each year. Can anyone enlighten us on some scorelines.
How Tony Lambe hasn't had a county final is still beyond me. Great Ref, Real inter county stuff. He wont give the star man/team the handy scores, just Refs it impartially and therefore fair..... maybe that doesn't suit some clubs???? who knows.
To Ad Lib the man from the Herald; "The Balls may be whacked on the golf course, But Crumlin where slapping the balls in O'Toole park". Great game, I wonder how many on this site who constantly bemoan the Dublin SHC where at it?
