Think Connolly has to be given a push for frees. Does fine for Blackrock and doesn't strike me as a lad who lets things get to his head if he missed one.I think we're all agreed that our keeper conceded a soft goal against Galway - which was the difference in the end. And I don't mean the one he dropped into the net. Certainly need to have real competition for places because guys can have a loss of form.
Agreed on doubting Dalton has IC speed but the fact that he could reasonably cover two positions from the bench would be an option.
Also think whether Hoggie is still in the squad would have an impact on whether or not Dalton would get a place.
A solid free taker is an absolute must at the top level imho.
