Can you imagine any of the other top managers coming out with shite like that…That is fucking laughable stuff from Kingston, it’s not the Harlem globetrotters ffs
Interesting couple of pages lads. It’s worth noting people are focusing on ‘ball winners’ in reference to a big half forward catching a puc-out… that’s a rare enough sight in the game these days - Kk are about the only team trying to do that still, majority of puc outs are not in the air down on top of a half forward line. Just look at ballygunner last week, dismantled kilmallock (who trying to apply a limerick high pressure game) with possession hurling.
I do however agree with the broad point (re too much focus on Shane kingston type players) but it’s more of the Brian Roche type of player and thinking of his performance in the AI 20s final last year than a big block like twomey. It’s tackles and rucks that we need to win more of, as opposed to catching puc outs.
I met a lad big into his hurling analysis before the all Ireland and he called it 10+ for limerick guaranteed… I said why so sure? He said they will put in almost double the amount of tackles than cork will today - and you can’t get close to another team if you’ve a gap in a stat like that.
