Currie is the only one who looked like a forward. Great from play but had a horror day on the frees but was inexplicably left on them. Murphy looked good for the first ten minutes but did nothing after that. The red card was coming all day but again inexplicably the line failed to act. McHugh was very good. Shackled their best player all day. But beyond him and Currie (from play) there was little on offer.
Same inability to perform the basics. Picking, striking, sidelines all poor. Shooting was awful. Eight wides in the first twelve minutes of the second half alone. Many of them hit under no pressure. Laois went one up from the free after the sending off and then incredibly withdrew all their players bar one from the forwards. Invited us on and Currie stood up and won the game for Dublin.
But it's hard to see where they go from here. If they get KK in then next round then it's all over. Even if they don't it seems unlikely they'll be hurling in August.
