OK on mature reflection as they say I was a wee bit carried away with 2 sentences in the middle of that post.😊
Apologies to Cian lynch M Keane and PROC. It now reads

" Ive been saying for some time now on this thread That Mark Keane is the exact player you need against limerick . He is big and strong and a serious hurler.
It would be great to see him in a Cork jersey . But alas Australia rules me thinks."
To answer your questions
I have this year of course during the great run by ballygiblin but also by when played with Mitchelstown CBS when they won the Munster colleges tital He played centre back
James Keating played full forward and he went on to captain Cork U20 following year While M keane headed for Australia .
Look HERE'S the best way to sum it up . Darragh flynn his team mate is on the Cork panel He is a very good hurler. but as we sat in the stands in Croke Park last year and were totally humiliated I can't see Darragh big and strong enough to take on Kyle Hayes the Morrisseys Byrnes etc.
But they won't blow Keane out of it and just as important He will win his own ball In my opinion
Glad you came to your senses on that one 😀

And I agree on your summation above, we don’t need more lovely hurlers, we need guys that can look after themselves, hopefully Mark will turn out to be a big asset
 
the way some people on hear are going on you would swear that on the 13th Jan. a savior for cork hurling arrived except that he now going to be coached by the worst coach in munster,he would have been better off spending a year playing with the footballers until we have a proper coaching team in charge.

Have you?

I have seen quite a few of the Ballygiblin games.
What surprises me is how good his touch is, playing in poor weather conditions and with barely a couple of weeks training for hurling.
I know he practiced a bit in Australia but it is not nearly as good as training and playing with your teammates.

He is not the finished article, how could he be?
Has he the potential to develop into a serious hurlers, certainly he has but nothing is certain.
What makes this different is that he is something from outside of what we thought our team or panel might be.
He has the physique that we need and certainly has played in a sport probably more physical than hurling.
I also see no harm in giving him a go, my only issue earlier was that he was going back to OZ and I thought it would be a waste of time but that is put to bed now.

Rumour that Darragh Flynn dropped by cork
Dropped could be wrong word, if he is off training panel I'd say for now it's concentrate on getting that injury right. He's u20 still so I'd say being right for that is the important one
Physically he's still developing, there's plenty time yet for seniors to look at him later on

I think that is about right.
I think the selectors were unhappy that he played for Ballygiblin while injured but he is young needs to concentrate on under 20 this year and let the future be what it will.
