No. He’s the coach and he’s inherited forwards laden with underage lenister titles at 21 and minor. If other recent less successful counties can turn losing underage forwards into good senior players,why cant we. Simple,the wrong players are picked and the training is too soft. Best example, in commentary Sunday Cummins said that galways training games are savage as all the players know that if they impress,they start. Honest competition for places. In another thread,lads here were clamering for the Cuala contingent to be shoehorned straight into the Clare relegation game. I posted that this would be completely unfair and counterproductive from a bigger picture point of view. Lads who had hurled fantastically well against cork were jettisoned out of the starting 15 and the illusion of honest competition for places was exposed. I said it was imperative from a squad point of view that management keeps faith in the lads who had done the business in cork,and that the Cuala lads be used if needed during the game. That call has completely backfired now. It was a colossal blunder. The towards were brilliant in cork,and the off the ball defending,tackling was great to see. The forwards picked that day had pace,heart,determination and no little skill. Contrast that forward display with the Clare one and the one on Sunday. No comparison. As I said before,the one thing missing from the set up is honesty,and without it its like going to sea in a storm with dead lifeboat men.
