Dalton worked his way back from injury early this year, got himself fit but then pulled his hamstring (I think) and was told go way and get yourself fit. Within weeks he was back shooting out the lights with his club but was never invited back on to the cork panel. He was treated appallingly and should never have been let goA remarkable number of that team still playing senior inter county hurling.
I think injury has kept DD away from the team more than anything.
He was just establishing in the team three years ago but has been injured a lot since then.
Remember the game against Tipp in Semple three years ago where he was playing centre forward, got injured and was replaced by Conor Lehane who just didn't have the ball winning aboility of Dalton.
I have always felt we lost that game because of the injury to Dalton.
I well remember that game against Tipp when he looked right at home but some idiots here would have you believe he’s never played well for Corlk
