Tom Aherne of Ballinteer and Micheal Murphy of Na Fianna were very good in midfield. Murphy of Cuala played very well. Ryan was impressive but I’d still hold off on declaring him as the future of Dublin hurling! He still has work to do. Grogan took a nasty hit and had to come off. To me it looked like a serious ankle injury and I hope it’s not broken.
Over all a poor first half performance was followed by a great second half one, Team seems more balanced than the minors, If they can play for sixty minutes and cut out the stupid frees they could take anyone.
Credit to the ref. As good this week as last week’'s was bad.
