Dublin need to take something from the game to have any chance of making the knockout stages of the All Ireland Intermediate championship
Jimmy Greville’s Dublin Inter Camogie side travel south tomorrow to face Cork in their second game of the Glen Dimplex All Ireland Intermediate championship in Ballinlough GAA at 5pm.
Dublin find themselves on the back foot and under pressure after their 4-13 to 1-04 loss to Kilkenny in round one. The most alarming aspect of that game was Dublin’s capitulation in the second half of that game.
The Dubs were only a point adrift after a competitive opening half but weren’t at the races after the break managing just one point in the second half from a free and conceding an unanswered 3-09.
That result leaves Dublin needing to take something from tomorrow’s game against Cork to keep their slim hopes of reaching the knockout stages alive and also to avoid the prospect of a relegation battle when the group stage finishes.
Tomorrows opponents Cork also lost their opening round game against Kilkenny on a scoreline 2-13 to 1-08 and find themselves in exactly the same position as Dublin and the clash between the two sides tomorrow evening should be a very tense and nervy affair.
