Dean Rock insists that Dublin’s players have not been talking about the prospect of winning a fifth successive All-Ireland SFC crown.
Jim Gavin’s all-conquering side would become history makers in 2019 if they were to retain the Sam Maguire Cup but Rock says they’ll be approaching the championship with the same outlook as any other year:
“It’s a nice position to be in but it’s certainly something we wouldn’t talk about as a group,” the Ballymun sharpshooter told gaa.ie.
“There’s some guys there who have been part of the group to win four in a row and some guys have just won their first one last year so consecutive All-Ireland’s isn’t something we’ve talked about as a group because it’s not fair on lads who weren’t there or who are just coming in fresh this year.
“We’ll just start fresh again next year and once 2018 is over those titles are almost taken away and 2019 is a new year.”
