Just a terrible day for Waterford. Very poor. Constipated hurling. They did well to stay in the game as long as they did. Never seen Moran as poor.
McGrath has done a good job overall but they've consistently been beaten in nearly all the big games under him. Really blew it the first day against Kilkenny last year when they were much the better side.
Still wouldn't want to face them in the qualifiers though, they surely won't be as bad again this year. You just won't win the AI with just one or two forwards and everyone else 60 yards further out. They've a lot of good players though, a lot more than you'd think after that display.
Would be just like Cork to come from nowhere and win the AI. Wide open this year.
Needless to say the qualifiers are going to be a minefield now.
