Alot of jitters out there on Saturday No starters from last year which explains some of it. The game will stand to them. There are 3 potential starters coming/ just back from injury. Down to 14 men with 10 mins to go they showed alot of heart. Need cleverer ball into forwards. The management are smart and will learn from that. Remember last years team were beaten by Wexford in their first game, we're close to going out against KK excep for inspirational stuff from Donal Burke. What I am saying is give this group a chance. There are fine hurlers amongst them. Yes they need sort out the forward play out before the next day. The backs were very solid. Young Burke was excellent and will learn from his sending off.
All going to form they should be playing Wexford in Parnell Park in 4 weeks time. The u17s are out against Offaly on Wednesday in Parnell Park. I believe it is straight knock out.
