Cork Hurlers - Part 2

Don't see them giving Limerick an easy game in the Munster Final if it comes to it tbh - after that I think they'll still be in the shake up - as will we hopefully.

They were a blocked shot from throwing a lead against 14 men two weeks ago and they needed an umpires decision to save them against Waterford.

Kilkenny or Limerick would eat them alive in Croker
 
I just don't get your necessity to move Downey from 6 where he's had two stormers in back-to-back must-win games providing a great balance with those around him. If Joyce is to come back as a starter can he not slot in somewhere else given how he's allegedly such a superstar unless and until Downey has a poor game at 6 🤷‍♂️
My God the overreaction is breath taking. Now Downey had two stormers. He played well. Again it wasn’t some unbelievable Cork defensive performance against Limerick and Tipp is plain awful. He was asleep to start both games btw. You can argue he played a major role in Tipp even being close to Cork at half. How does that half look without the goal he played a major role allowing?

Is Joyce a superstar? Guess it depends on your criteria. There was absolutely no one on the planet rating Downey ahead of him a couple weeks ago. Two games later the guy cannot be moved from center back. This mentality is bizarre.
 
We’ve looked more secure at 6 the last 2 games than the first 2 games. CJ wasn’t unreal there by any stretch of anyones imagination against either Waterford or Clare. And if you’re cherry picking goals that lads were at fault for, where was CJ for Barrons goal and do you think Barron would’ve got that goal if Rob Downey was playing centre back?

I’m mentioning those instances because you would think Downey walks on water around here. I like Rob Downey. He’s done a nice job. He’s not the player Joyce is at 6. No one would’ve even suggested it two weeks ago for a reason. Two very good games does not change that Joyce has been excellent at 6 for two years. Downey is a good player. He should have a role. He’s not the player Joyce is at 6. If you wanna argue the team is better with Downey at 6 because he’s not as good at 5 so be it. Don’t tell me he’s better than Joyce. This place has a massive bout of short term memory.

That's quite funny considering anyone reading your posts would think Joyce walks on water.
The simple fact is we have had 4 games, Joyce was CB for 2, RD was CB for 2, who played better? Tbh there is only one answer so RD stays at 6. They player in form keeps the jersey, it's quite simple really.
 
Likelihood is there will be more knocks and injuries so no point worrying about it. Both good options. In terms of pace, would Eoin Downey have a bit more than his brother, although still not a strong point?

Clare are a better team than people here think also. They were missing TK and Ryan Taylor when they beat cork and won well in the end. I think they will be serious challengers in the AI series. Limerick will have Darragh O Donovan and Sean Finn back for AI series also.

He’s not Christ but he’s one of the best players on the panel and anyone who knows the game knows that.
