Unfortunately if this is the way we're going, I don't see too much success in front of us for the
next couple of years...
TOM is not a natural back...The people in Newton will tell you that time and time again...He has
played all his club and Cork underage hurling as a forward. It's just not fair on the lad.
I believe we need to be much more radical in our thinking..We ain't go to win an AI in the
next 3-5 years, so therefore, we need to blood the new fellas now..Perhaps they'll get hammerings along the way, but
eventually they will come through for us. From what I've seen so far, its same old, same old.
It reminds me of Cork Football, where twas harder to get off the team than get on!!! I will never critisise individual
players, however, there are least 6 players that are not I.C standard..They wouldn't get near a Tip, Lim or KK panel.
Obviously, I would hope to be proved wrong come August, but we'll be lucky to get out of Munster..In fact if we
do, I would consider it bonus territory.
