Its great to see two more young players get there debuts this weekend Sean Wilson and Cian Kiely two fine prospects I like what the management have been doing so far Its a long road but they are giving young players a chance and I like that ....John Mullins injured ??? Dan O Duninn wont play ??? are two talented players as well would like to see them involved not sure what the story is with both ....the Roscommon and Meath games away will be the acid tests.

2-11 to 0-10. Listened on the radio. One of those funny games where you'd expect more and overall frustrating. I'll leave it to the people who were at it to give more accurate reflection

Listened on the radio too. Cork made heavy weather of it in the 2nd half having been in a commanding position at half-time. John Fintan Daly was full of praise for Ruairi Deane who seemed to get through a lot of work. He singled out Cian Kiely as playing well too. Anyway, we are top of Division 2 this evening but much stiffer tests to come.

Just a couple of points

• Cork started well. Seemed focussed on switching the play quickly from wing to wing to open us the Louth defence.

• Hurley played well in what is becoming the Powter role. You can’t beat brute speed

• Wing backs found lots of space and both Clancy and Kiely looked comfortable exploiting it.

• Deane was powerful. Animal for work. If you told me he ran back to Bantry afterwards I’d believe you.

• Looks a tactic to get Colm O’Neill on the ball looping out as a shooter. Great in theory but not always easy in practice. Dan Goulding was/is the king of that looped run with the ball kicked over the shoulder

• De rigeur now that the back marking Colm O’Neill attacks at will. In fairness O’Neill tracked back and even got in some good tackles. But didn’t exactly burst his arse getting back up. O’Neills value is not as an auxillary wing back. If the back wants to go, surely someone else can be deputised to track him and Colm stay where he will hurt teams.

• New FB line look neat, tidy but lacking size.

• Second half was a write off – match was won at half time and Cork didn’t come out in the blizzard after half time.

• No one put their stamp on things in the 15 mins of the second half where Louth began to dominate. Who was the man to take the match by the scruff of the neck. Deane and Collins tried hard.

• Glad to hear McCarthy not “looking for the positives”. Says want and expects more from Cork. Good.

4 games left, 2 at home, 6 points should see us gain promotion I would imagine.

I would be interested in the views of people at the games, is discipline a problem?? 3 sent off now in 2 games

Like others, I caught most of it on C103 but that experience continues to become more bizarre...you're left scratching your head as to what is really going on as the picture being painted is anything but clear.

One question I have to anyone who was there in person...how can an experienced player like Kevin O'Driscoll get himself sent off for 2 yellows in a (at that point in the game) low competitive game where Cork were cruising to a routine & stress-free victory?

Maybe the ref was harsh, maybe the player gave the ref an easy call...I'd be interested to know because if its the latter its something Cork really need to become more streetwise about?
