O'Connor on...

"They are a tough nut to crack and a hard team to break down."

Being there before

"A lot of players can have a lot of their energy expended before the game even starts. That's where a bit of experience comes in."

Raising their game

"We will have to go to another level against Dublin because the fitness levels, athleticism and intensity they have would be higher than any team we have faced this year."

Defensive play

"If we try to play defensive, it's not the opposition that would be booing us -- it's our own fans that would be booing us."

Stephen cluxton

"He's a fair operator with those kick-outs and it's easier said than done to target them. He has taken it to a new level."
