I don't agree Kildare are poor. They have an excellent midfield and a good inside line. Granted they continue to waste a lot which won't beat a top side. Of course Meath being very poor tempers that but there are areas where they could hurt us should the game materialise. How the Dublin midfield would fare in such a game would be interesting if we see a continued shift back towards a traditional type midfield setup. Its clear enough we are behind in this area.
Kildare at least had a plan today and the players to execute it with a mixed result. That's more than we can say about our Leinster matchups recently.
