Leinster Senior Camogie Championship Quarter Final

Dublin v Kilkenny

Saturday 11th of May

Venue: O’Toole Park

Throw-In: 3pm

Referee: Ray Kelly

 

Dublin manager Frank Browne has named his side to face Kilkenny tomorrow in the quarter final of the Leinster Senior Camogie championship in O’Toole Park in Crumlin at 3pm.

This is Frank’s first Leinster championship in charge of the Dublin Senior squad and he will have learnt plenty about his group of players during their League campaign and what areas needed improvement.

With plenty of work done over the last number of weeks on the teams style of play and set-up tomorrow’s game against Kilkenny is the perfect opportunity to road test both and also lay down a marker not just in Leinster but for the upcoming All Ireland championship.

Both teams met in the opening round of this seasons league and Dublin brought an aggressive in your face style that caught Kilkenny by surprise.

Dublin were well in the game till the final quarter but so early in the season the fitness levels were not quite at optimum levels to sustain their all action style for the full sixty plus minutes and the much more experienced Kilkenny team pulled away in the final ten minutes.

That was then and this is now, with month’s of training and a full league campaign behind them Dublin’s fitness is now at the required levels to sustain that high pressured style throughout a game.

Kilkenny looked extremely uncomfortable with the intensity from Dublin in that above mentioned league encounter and if Frank Browne’s charges bring the same tomorrow but this time for the full sixty minutes they will give themselves every chance of claiming the win and a place in the semi-finals.

The action gets underway in O’Toole Park at 3pm and there will be LIVE updates of all the action over on the We Are Dublin GAA Twitter @wearedub
