Colm O’Rourke: ‘Spineless’ Rebels display asks serious questions of Cork’s mentality

Colm O’Rourke has described as ‘spineless’ Cork’s heavy defeat at the hands of Kerry in the Munster Football Final at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

The Rebels fell to a demoralising 12 point defeat to their arch rivals despite their favourites tag and the margin would have been greater if Kerry hadn’t spurned opportunities in front of goals.

O’Rourke felt Cork lacked passion throughout and serious questions need to be asked of the Rebel footballers.

“It was a spineless display,” he said post-match.

“In this historical shadow (the final Munster Final in Pairc Ui Chaoimh before stadium redevelopment) you would think they (Cork) would come out with passion. They did the opposite.”

“You don’t want to be overly critical on amateurs, but the Cork public will be disgusted with that level of performance.”

The former Meath star added that the nature of victory has laid down a marker for Kerry over the coming season.

“Kerry announced themselves as serious contenders,” he added.
