Goal-shy Dubs to keep workers busy in the rain forests

BY 6.0 last Sunday, word of Dublin's victory filtered through to all parts of the globe. In some cases it meant an order for the natives to get back into the jungle and start cutting down more trees as quickly as possible, such was the demand for paper to continue the coverage of this odyssey.

Maybe a similar order went out on the factory floor in St James's Gate and in Milwaukee and other parts of the world, such will be the demand this afternoon for alcohol with another late throw-in. The publicans are delighted again, maybe less so the casualty units of some hospitals who get the after affects of the binges, and there is no sign of a latter day Matt Talbot coming to the rescue.

Overall, Dublin were a good bit better than Meath last Sunday and on the ratio of possession and scoring chances should not have had to endure another jittery period near the end. The Dubs still lack the ruthless ability to despatch a team when they are clearly in control.
