Agree with you regarding Sherlock, normally very good. However they were missed today when we needed those scores to keep in touch. Cathail kicked them when he was taking them. End of the day probably not as much pressure when he was taking them but he's done it for U20s to win All-Ireland so well able to do it. Cathail should be the man going forward I feel.Highly debatable. Sherlock has been unerring this year before missing a few long range ones today from the ground. Generally speaking he doesn’t miss a thing.
O’Mahony can kick them too and that’s a helpful thing to have. No team should be reliant on one. Dublin arguably carry Dean Rock for them.
Next winter is important for conditioning further. These are still young men developing. There’s work to be done on their bodies that won’t even be complete in one year.
We also need to evolve further in our tactical setup. I’d like to see White rejoin the panel. He has a good range from short to very long but he can also be used as a +1 with the ball and possibly to even push opposition kickout in a high zone. Our own kickout and how we defend the opposition kickout are a big part of our shortcomings. We need to be far more thoughtful to compensate for other shortcomings like conditioning.
