2 a piece for doobla and antrim after 5 minutes
Tight pitch in Navan but a lovely scoreboard
I’d fancy Antrim to win this going on the opening 8 minutes
If their passing comes together a bit more then they’ve every chance. Fair few of them off the mark so far
Dublin seem to be scoring far easier
Antrim fb line looks there for the taking.
Dublin 5 up now.
Goal for Dublin
1-14 to 0-9 now, 2 to go before ht
Ht Dublin lead 1-17 to 0-12 and it’s been comfortable for them.
The goal was very well finished by O’Sullivan, Crummy and Sutcliffe are going well and Ronan Hayes looks like scoring any time he gets the ball.
Antrim backs are doing all they can but they’re getting no help from the other end of the field. The forwards aren’t making it stick at all and most of their scores have come from frees.
Hard to see them turning it around.
Sutcliffe lording it in the air. He must have 4 or 5 puck outs caught. Eoghan O Donnell is outstanding at full back. Antrim disappointing so far.
You wouldn’t even know McManus was playing such has been his dominance.
Goal 2 for Dublin
2-24 to 0-17
Red rover and we only at the second half uisce break
Summer Championship hurling is different gravy
Antrim look quite unfit.
Senseless red card for Antrim to round the day off with a minute to go
FT 3-31 to 0-22
Welcome to the big leagues
Good scoring by the Dubs.
We’ll hear whinging about how the sliotar is too light again, no doubt.
Dublin will be happy with that. Hard to know how much to read into it as Antrim were really poor. I sense we are well behind Galway and will be doing well to get close
