he would be on the Kerry panel. Last sunday he was man of the match

As has been said before him like a few of his Crokes team mates are very good forr Crokes because they fit into the Crokes system of play

This was posted by me on the 9-Oct on a similar thread:

Ok granted they are great club players but they lack the step up for intercounty level, I have said before they play the Crokes "system" to perfection but take them out of that comfort zone and they cannot cut it at intercounty level. But for some reason that has always been the case think back over the years the amount of nearly men who star at club level with Crokes: Current players like O'Leary, Casey and Looney, over the past then there was Pat Shea, Noel O'Leary, Roland Neher.. All excellent with club but couldn't make that final step up to intercounty level….. I was however very impressed with fionn Fitzgerald… he has something… needs to beef up though but he has the makings..

I would give Daithi Casey Game time but the big problem is the time for Trials is the same time that Crokes will be in the middle of their all Ireland plans (hopefully) therefore it is hard to see him getting game time unless Crokes release him,.

I think he's lacking something for Inter-County, can't quite put my finger on it. He just seems to drift in and out of games a bit, alomst a lack of interest or something. He has the skill and strength alright.

I had high hopes for him my self when he came on the scene a few years back, but ya he's lacking something alright.
