In Parnell historically we bring intensity. The Limerick game last year was horrible though, and we just have to hope that was an exception. Playing two home games in what is effectively a neutral venue for the hurlers (Croke Pk), was a huge mistake.
I think this game will be close. We need to sort out our full forward line though, we have a young lad, a guy in his debut season and a guy who is a good mixer, but not a great hurler in there, and we won't get the returns we need from there.
Cian Boland came on the last day, he could add something to the overall team. Conroy hopefully will be fit again (assuming he was injured the last day and wasn't dropped for looking sideways at the manager).
I am no great fan of any of these selections or set ups, but even with all that being against us, we have the hurlers to trouble them if we bring the fight on the day. It could happen.
Although if other results don't go our way, beating them might not be in our best interests. It could actually be a disaster in that we have to play KK again and lose, but beating them the first time is enough to keep Cunningham for another year.
