A much nicer Monday. Still cold and a bit of drizzle about the place here on the east coast this morning but yesterday’s much-needed win is just the tonic for a positive start to the week. And hunting for coverage on the match at Clones doesn’t quite seem like a chore. Here’s what’s in the basket from the gathering I’ve done this morning.
Hurlers: Irish Independent.
The match reports obviously speak for themselves – saying win, win, win – so the only thing from all the above worth reflecting on is what Stephen Rochford had to say to RTÉ after the game. I thought this quote at the end of that piece was noteworthy, setting out as it does a clear expectation on the manager’s part about how next Sunday’s clash with Kerry should go:
A win for us would leave us on four points. I’d be happy with that at this stage of the season after all the hard work that has been put in.
Obviously, and quite correctly, Stephen is only planning for a win in this pivotal encounter. That’s for another day, though – today we can afford to look back in satisfaction on a good day’s work yesterday.
That’s your lot – don’t forget to vote in the Man of the Match poll of you haven’t yet done so. I’ll post the results later on.
