We're still a long way off breaking even in hurling. Hope is all we have. Most Cork supporters are not at all confident of beating Dublin next Saturday. We were beaten at a canter in the Croke Park league game last year and lucky to survive in the championship qualifier after Dublin had a man sent off. Playing just two players in the full-forward line, which seems to be Kingston's preference at the moment, does not create any great goal chances. all the players worked hard last Saturday, but Cork have had those kind of games before without building on them. Consistency of effort is what we're looking for at the moment.
