NHL: Rebels staring down relegation dogfight while Dublin far too strong for Tribesmen

Cork suffered their second consecutive loss in the National league as Munster rivals Waterford left Pairc Ui Rinn with the points while in Parnell Park Dublin were seven-point winners over Galway.
The Deise backed up their opening day win over All-Ireland champions Kilkenny with an impressive showing on Leeside, though a late fight-back meant it was closer at the finish than Waterford manager Derek McGrath would have liked.
The visitors led by four points at the break and while the Rebels had a late rally, they were very much second best for long periods of the contest in a game that saw Maurice Shanahan and substitute Alan Cadogan both receive red cards for strikes off the ball.
Horgan raised the green flag in injury time but it was too little too late for the Rebels.
Ger Cunningham will be pleased that his Dublin side recovered from their defeat at the hands of Waterford to record a comfortable win over the Tribesmen in Dublin tonight.
Sean McGrath grabbed the only goal of the game 10 minutes into the second half as the men from the capital enjoyed a seven-point win at the final whistle.
Cork 1-14 Waterford 0-20
Dublin 1-17 Galway 0-13
