Cork are back on form after their six-point win over Dublin at Semple Stadium on Saturday.

Kieran Kingston’s side looked to be in a bad place after their disappointing display in their Munster SHC semi-final against Waterford.

Now, after a free-flowing performance against the capital, they seem to be in a position to challenge the top sides once more.

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney analysed their win over Dublin, and concluded that the Rebels met the right opposition at the right time.

The performance of Mark Coleman of sweeper, Declan Dalton at 14, the pace of Robbie O’Flynn, and not being as reliant on Patrick Horgan was central to the discussion.

Stapleton looks at Dublin’s set-up under his former Cuala manager, Mattie Kenny, and how a zonal puckout system might have solved some of their issues.

Eddie Brennan was frustrated at his Laois troops losing by a point to 14-man Clare, saying: “We had 42 turnovers in the first half, which is phenomenal at this level, and then we handed the ball straight back to Clare. You can’t do that.”

We look at the Banner’s showing at Nowlan Park, and whether they can raise a gallop before meeting Wexford next weekend as the All-Ireland SHC begins to hot up.
