Cork 2-18 Waterford 0-7 FT

Final should be a bit more competitive given Cork and Clare put up identical scores against Waterford and what they both conceded wasn't too dissimilar.

No blanket defenses in that game.

We are coming into this year in as strong and we'll prepared position as I can remember us coming into a league campaign. Still we've a very tough opening two matches and that'll tell us which end of the table we'll be looking at. We've been traditionally poor in the league and played well in short spells in games, that's something we need to improve on.

Cork keeper apparently gifted Clare at least 1 goal if not 2.

Also for games at this time of year, looking at the lineups is key. Lot of unfamiliar names in the starting Cork team and in the Clare team too.

No surprise to see Cork win it late on when they bring subs of the quality of John O’Rourke, Ian Maguire, Sean Powter and Ruairi Deane after the 50th minute.
