    Cork Hurlers - Part 2

    Cork are really shaping up well - the ONLY hurlers to take down Limerick. We’ll need 3+ goals per game from Connolly / Dalton / Robby plus 20+ points from the rest. Also we still have to WORK HARDER than Limerick to beat them. Ringy used to say about the old Kats ‘you’d have to beat them (...

    Cork Hurlers - Part 2

    Fully fit Coleman, Fitzgibbon and Tim O’Mahony should be nailed on c/ship starters - the big challenge is identifying their best positions - IMO midfield or halforward for all 3 will bring us best return I don’t rate them as defenders

    Cork Hurlers - Part 2

    So we cannot expect to be successful starting Hoggy, Lehane and Kingston together. We can possibly get away with starting ONE non-contractor only, with the other 5 forwards bursting a gut fighting for possession. The other 2 cud be used as supersubs in the last 15/20 mins when some of the...

    Cork Hurlers - Part 2

    Only because we continue to persevere with way too many non-contact forwards ( who are never going to grow liathroidi ) - when we should be giving physical lads like Twomey, Colin O’Brien, Dalton, Robby, etc as much time as they need to get their confidence and hurling skills up to the best they...

    Cork Hurlers - Part 2

    It’s way too early to be making 2024 Championship predictions after just 2 league games with predominantly trial teams. A good reason why it’s crazy Cork starting Hoggy and Lehane in these early games when more young prospects could be given decent trials / game time

    Cork Hurlers - Part 2

    Wud like to see our 6 STARTING forwards ( all fully fit and standing over 6 ft ) - Coleman ( or Fitzgibbon ) - Robby - Twomey - Dalton - Harnedy - Connolly / backed up with impact subs ( not so tall ) Hoggy - Hayes - Kingston - Lehane + + that’s 10 forwards if properly managed can do serious...
