Cork v Waterford - All Ireland Hurling Semi-Final 2'17


Do waterford use squad numbers or have they retired the no 5?


I think we were only 82% Joe tbh


Squad numbers for the past 3 years


Knew they did before alright. Interesting approach not sure what benefit it serves


Aussie gets to wear 6 all the time


Ah the O driscoll clause


Jesus mate, we’ll have a right couple of days with insecure lads trying to wind us up over an accident of birth :joy:

are you heading up?


Well capable of fucking it up yet. County Board have completely taken back selecting managers and selectors.
Clubs are really unhappy.
Development squads are a mess.

Sheer weiggt of numbers and a particularly good bunch as you mention will keep Cork in the mix, but as for maximising it. No chance.

If they don’t win this one thwy could be still 4-5 years away


Tis great being from Cork all the same pal :ok_hand:

I am heading up alright driving a few lads. Looking forward to it


Hope you have a great day, mate.


Cheers pal :+1:

Cant bate the bandwagon


Have s great day


The sheer strength of numbers is a huge advamtage.

Cork as a hurling county are very close this year…but when those teenage lads come through with the tradition ye have…its not good for the rest of us…

Sunday is massive for Cork hurling but its not judgement day for ye by any means…far more pressure on McGrath and his systems.

Time will tell…hope its a cracking game.


I don’t know if Kieran Bennett will actually start, it’s an interesting call. Someone who has never played Championship before… a solid, if unspectacular full-back at underage.

I suppose if they play training matches, somebody has to play sweeper on the ‘other’ team, maybe it has been Bennett. Very hard to know how he’ll go, I can’t even remember him starting that many League games. Can’t see his use of the ball being as good as De Búrca’s. A tough fucker though.
