So another championship over, Cuala won it, despite nearly loosing to Brigids, Vinnies & Crokes.
Were they the best team?, probably not, but they had the collectiveness to see hard matches out.
Cuala are a team in decline and as said previously, the poor Cuala underage structure (Div 2&3 most ages) they are unlikely to win again. No Minor has made it into the senior team in 3 years. Con and Jake are the only 2 in 5 years to make the grade.
For Leinster, Cuala are in trouble; Mark Schutte must be a major doubt for the next stages of Leinster, he picked up a serious injury in a club football game, he tried to play through the pain in the last 3 AHC matches. He’s been seen in work this week, wearing the rigid-cast boot and using crutches.
When Mark went off, Cuala’s forward treat disappeared.
Dicksboro are well worth a punt on their very generous odds.
