Cork will be delighted to have reached the All-Ireland last four. The semi-finalists were always going to come down to four from Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford, Cork and Galway, with the latter three seen as the most vulnerable.

Cork have made the cut and are now priming themselves for one massive effort against Kilkenny. I have no doubt they will make a much better job of it than many seem to think.

It's in their DNA to raise their game against Kilkenny and it's well within their range to apply a level of pressure that the Cats didn't encounter against Dublin or Galway.

I'm glad to see that the GAA are considering making interfering with an opponent's helmet a red-card offence.

With helmets now mandatory, there has been an increase in interference and clearly a yellow card is not proving a sufficient deterrent. Upgrade it to red and that will be the end of the problem.
