To Winston Churchill, Russia was a “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma”. Watching the Cork hurlers this year we’ve been left thinking much the same. About Cork that is. Not Russia. From day to day, game to game, the Rebels are never quite what you expect them to be.

Inputs don’t result in expected outcomes. There’s quite often as much upside to that as downside. Those days when they show up and put their critics in their place with displays of genuine conviction and class. Leaving you to think that maybe, just maybe, they’ve finally cracked it.
