What do the managers say?
“In my day we were beaten in the first round in 1990, we were All Ireland champions and we were beaten in one game in Cork and that was it. As if these guys get a chance to put their gear back on next Sunday. That’s brilliant. What an opportunity. You enjoy these games.
“I love the championship the way it is at the moment. I’d like to be guaranteed four games because these guys… we love it and we just keep bringing more. And hopefully by the end of the four games we’ll be in the mix and we’ll have shown enough to compete to be in one of those three places.
