I am relieved man this morning.limerick were poor last night but somehow got through to win.sick of glorious defeats over the years so winning ugly against a tough cork side is super.wont deny that if cork had the 2 lads they probably would have won but we will never know.expectations on this team are huge but after last nights performance they will have gone down a bit which will help us.

Whinging re the ref ?????????????????????????

the stats from last nights game. Cork awarded 4 free's... Limerick awarded 22 !!!!!!!!!!!

While you may think all limericks were fair how the hell could cork only get 4 ????

Limerick were out scored by cork in open play.

Whinging ????? Good god man if it was the reverse limerick would be screaming blue murder.

I too re watched the game. In general i thought limerick played better. Cork were completely clue less in first half playing balls into the corner where the closest person in red was in the stands. On the same note cork back had the measure of limerick forwards and at the end of the day it was frees and some terrible frees that kept limerick ticking over. Half of all limericks scores came from placed balls. Even you concede that re watching the game that MOST of the frees seemed fair. Which mean some weren't. But the question i want answered is how is it possible for a team to get awarded only 4 free's in 60 plus mins of hurling.

Yes and Colin Ryan was struck foul blows twice in which players were yellow carded. Both culprits, especially Dalton, were lucky not to see red. Seanie got it for less v Clare two years ago.

15 frees for Limerick and 5 frees for Cork. Cork must be a filthy team.

We played Wexford in an All Ireland Final and we had the best free taker in the land. He scored frees in the hour, one from ninety yards . The fact was the better team did not foul. I think the same applied last night.

Not filthy but not very clued in.

Mark Coleman at the end had a Limerick lad out on the wing ball in hand. What did he do? Fouled him. Gave us back our 4 point lead.

Dalton won a free in front of goal in the first half, not happy with his free he swiped the hurley on our lad & the ball was thrown in.

Setting up (albeit against the wind) with one player on our 21 & the rest were closer to the stand hotel. Totally handed the initiative to our lads from the off. 15 minutes gone, 0-7 to 0-0 & Limerick had 4 wides at that stage.

Lad at the end going through with Cork a goal down, decided to shoot from 25 yards out. Off balance, the ball flew over the bar. Why not go as far as possible & try to win a penalty? Worked v Waterford.

Our Manager said Cork were the best prepared side they'd faced but I don't agree. Some of their decision making & actions suggested otherwise.

Above should have he scored TWO points in the 70 odd minutes. The opposing defence just hardly ever fouled.

Rubbish. Excellent game management from Cork to stay in the game. They were down 2 Senior Players against an odds-on Team laden with talent and they were still in it up until that last ball was taken out of the square. If Kingston had kept going there the Ref would have done what he did all night and blew up for over carrying against Cork even when they were fouled. The free against Coleman at the end was very soft. In the first half almost by the same spot by the sideline (when Lynch did a triple fist pump) Lynch pulled across Dalton's leg but no free given.
Limerick 2017 U21 Team are a better team than this Cork 2017 U21 Team but ye can send Christmas Cards to Clare this year. If Cork are not that clued in lets see who wins the most AI seniors out of both groups.

I would believe there was a lot of Christmas cards from Leeside to Banner side, after Hickey gave that very soft penalty in the 2009 Munster Football Final. Not every 50/50 goes the way of any county and nor I do not blame Rory Hockey as I am sure he was an honest and decent man who called that incident as he called it as the man last night did also.
Having said I wish Cork well in the competitions they are still in.
