Former Cork All-Ireland winning captain Larry Tompkins sees more room for improvement in Kerry’s performance in this Saturday evening’s final replay against Dublin at Croke Park.

The Munster champions are 10/3 underdogs to topple the Dubs’ ‘Drive for Five’ at the second time of asking and Tompkins fancies them to tear up the script if they can find top gear against the holders.

“What have Dublin left in the tank? In fairness they dug in bravely when they had to the last day, but there’s more room for improvement in Kerry,” he told the Irish Independent.

“They didn’t know what to expect going into the first game, but they do now. The way they came back from a five-point deficit will have worked wonders for their confidence.

“They have the hunger, the desire, the exuberance and if they get their game working as it can, I’d fancy them to win.”
