Forget the scoreline above and reflect instead on how it was when this Leinster semi-final was still remotely a contest in the first half.

From 18 shots, Dublin landed 17 points. They were ruthless, efficient, precise, clinical. Choose any words you like from that selection to capture it because by any measure, irrespective of opposition, that’s some efficiency.
