"I don't think Clare should be where they are"

Former sharpshooter David Tubridy feels Clare’s results so far in the Allianz Football League don’t properly reflect their efforts.

The Banner men are facing relegation from Division 2 this weekend if they lose to hot favourites Derry and Kildare defeat bottom-placed Limerick at the TUS Gaelic Grounds.

Speaking on the RTE GAA podcast this week, Tubridy said he doesn’t feel Colm Collins’s side should be in a scenario where they’re fighting for safety with two rounds to go.

"I don’t think Clare should be where they are," said the Allianz Football League’s all-time top scorer.

"Probably the game that really caught them was Kildare in Cusack Park, they left that after them big time and that game, for me they would have been safe, they would have been home and hosed.

"They played Dublin the following weekend and Dublin pipped them as well and I think that took a lot out of them going into the Cork game. Watching the game the last day, they were very dead in the second-half when they came out against Cork."
