Dubs take big step forward with Curran
DUBLIN have a new man to lead the attack one of the game's finest defenders Paul Curran. Curran has been handed the No 11 jersey for the Dubs' eagerly awaited NFL clash with Leinster champions Offaly at Parnell Park on Sunday. The siting of Curran at centre-forward is an intriguing development, as he has proved himself one of the finest wing-backs of the modern era.His return is one of three changes from the side which lost so dramatically to Sligo two weeks ago. But with so many regular members of the Dublin attack either retired or taking a break from the game like Charlie Redmond, Paul Clarke, Mick Galvin, Jason Sherlock and Dessie Farrell options were limited.
