Great win. Don’t think this team have gotten the credit they deserve really. Weren’t behind all year, never looked like losing. Conceded no more than 9 scores in a game.
Today was more about the less heralded players. Darren Byrne the corner back was superb, and Gavin in midfield was excellent, showed the form he showed in championship last year.
Of the more well known players, murchan and Howard were excellent. Murchans pace is incredible. Howard is just an exceptional footballer.
The subs surprised me. O Reilly was better than any option on the bench. Basquel needs to learn to use the ball quicker if he wants any chance of making it senior.
The biggest strength to this team though is that they functioned so well as a unit. So many expected this team to be a one man team with Con. They’ve proved otherwise. Congrats to all. Was confident back in February they could win the all Ireland. It’s a better team than they’ve been given credit for. We’ll see enough of these lads in the senior set up in the coming years
