Missed the match but just watched it this morning.
Cuala have shown how strong Dublin Hurling is. As said previously they could’ve been knocked out by their last 2 Dublin opponents.
What Dublin hurling has is very skilled squads, superb S&C, and they all now know that with a victory in Dublin, Leinster, at least, is a real possibility.
I was visiting family in Cork and went to the Na Piarsaigh game, they are well capable of beating any of the Leinster teams and they’re installed as favourites by the Bookies.
Mark Schutte is a huge loss, a Cuala mentor says he’s back in 3 weeks.
As for Cuala’s age profile, their subs for the past 2 games are averaging 31.25 years, so this confirms their lack of a young player pool.
Average age of the normal starting squad is circa 28.
