I think with the bad news of losing James along with Jack and Rory a few people are understandably losing sight of the positives.
Rock- At present, best free taker in the business imo. Incredibly accurate from play too. Not only that he's much stronger and looks sharper this year. He's winning his 50 50 battles which is huge for us. Massive improvement on last year
Bernard- Showing signs of rolling back to years. He really is evergreen. Absolutely class against Kerry in the league final and his performance on Sunday was right out of the top drawer.
Kev- His hunger for a starting place is savage. He's really taken his opportunity and gives us a platform to run at defences right from the off.
Flynn- Not back to his previous injury form (he probably never will, 4 all stars in a row is inhumane levels of from) but he's certainly better than last year. Perhaps people are still judging him by his own ridiculous standards but to me there's still not a 10 put there I'd have over him. Class act
Fenton- It's no longer just a new addition bounce. This guy is the real deal and if we do win it, he'll surley be player of the year. Phenomenal athlete playing at maturity level I've never seen from a lad so young
Small- Struggled a bit in the early rounds of the league and ran himself into some silly dangerous tackles but he is showing signs of learning from that. His point on Sunday was worth the 35 quid fee alone. Outstanding.
Diarmuid- Diarmuid is Diarmuid and in his day his just unplayable. Has showed some glimpses in all games but needs to keep his head. Get the feeling a massive performance is just around the corner from him and God help whoever is in our way that day.
Plenty of positives to focus on and was said previously I still wouldn't change our position with anyone else out there. Bring it on
