Semple Stadium will host the All Ireland Quarter Final between Dublin and Cork tonight and we’ll have live udaptes
Dublin v Cork
Saturday, July 31st. 7:00pm
Semple Stadium, Thurles
Mattie Kenny’s Dublin Senior Hurlers are tonight in search of their first Championship win over Cork since 1927. Since then the counties have met ten times in All Ireland Hurling action and Cork have won ten for ten. And tonight they go again. We’ll have live updates from throw in (7:00pm)
If this game was based on form alone you’d have to shade Cork again. This is in no small part because not alone were Dublin stripped of four players due to Covid contact on the morning of the Leinster final, but they were key players, whose absence completely changed the game. Add back in Ronan Hayes and Cian O’Callaghan alone, and they are a lot better equipped to take on the challenge of Cork tonight than they were last time out.
A full strength Dublin would certainly cause Cork a lot of problems. The Rebels found a big performance against Clare and certainly addressed some of the concerns that existed around their attacking play in that contest, but the other side of the equation is that they struggled to shake off a Clare team that has put a lot of miles on the clock in 2021, and who still shot 18 wides over the course of the contest.
