The short sideline was because there was no grass . Just sand. Was talking to one of the cork staff after the game and he said that to.me.He adds so much pace and his ability to score goals ensures that he keeps defenders pinned back as they can't risk leaving him unmarked.
In general I thought the tactic of two in the full forward line worked well.
The thing I disliked most was the short sideline , it works sometimes but we used it all the time last Sunday and teams will learn to stifle that very quickly.
