Seen them twice in a week
First v Antrim no contest really
Then v Wexford last Sunday
Very impressed with them, had Wexford on the rack to winters got red
Their tackling and aggression when they donít have the ball is fantastic
There number 11 ( Whitley) was very good and Winters
Solid full back line and very pacy corner forwards
Young Dillon came on in second half and looks promising
There no6 is to slow but Imm sure Rushe will slot in there when he comes back
Sutcliffe of the pace but showed signs of old
I think they could run deep this summer and challenge for trophies next year no problem
Big crowd there so things are looking up for Dublin hurling

How many of the Cuala lads will fit in to that panel?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Gilroy will make them competitive and it will be interesting to see where it goes from here.

Always like Dublin hurling, always playing in the shadow of their footballers, even in the days that their footballers were being dominated by the likes of Meath and so they plugged away, and for years I'd be down at Parnell park watching Antrim beat Dublin and now its chalk and cheese!

 Dublin have built up a rep for hard physical hurling, now if they manage to get a few forwards that will open up teams they could (and should based on their money and competitive club teams) have an impact on the tradional teams of hurling

Evidently can't get himself back in peak form and fitness, was some player and gave Seamus Callinan as good as working as any the day the Dubs played Tipp in a qualifier game in Thurles when all else around him was taking in water.

The best man I ever saw to handle Callanan was the Westmeath Full Back. He did it twice.
