Dublin Under-21 hurlers completely outclassed hosts Carlow in this Leinster Championship Round 2 tie at Netwatch Cullen Park last night, with a total of 12 of the visitors sharing in their big total.

Dublin were in front within the opening minute when midfielder Johnny McGuirk pointed from play. Showing great fielding, pace and scoring power, the visitors had powered into a double-scores lead by half-time (0-12 to 0-6).

Carlow simply had no answer to the superior hurling skills of the Dubs, depending exclusively on Chris Nolan for their first-half tally - Nolan scored 0-11 on his side's overall total, 0-4 from play.

Any hopes of a Carlow comeback were dashed within a minute of the restart when Dublin's Paul Crummey flashed home his side's first goal.

Further green flags were to follow from Cian O'Sullivan, substitute Cillian Costello and a wonderful solo effort from centre-forward Eoghan Dunne as Dublin won much as they pleased.

Dublin look like a formidable team and now move on to an away meeting with Westmeath but it will take stronger opposition to gauge their full potential.

Scorers - Dublin: E Dunne 1-3, P Crummey 1-2, C Currie 0-4 (3f), C Costello 1-1, C O'Sullivan 1-0, E Conroy 0-2, J McGuirk, D Keogh, C Dowling, R Hayes, C Burke, S McCaw 0-1 each. Carlow: C Nolan 0-11 (7f), C Whelan 0-1f.

Dublin - D Perry; C Hendricken, S Howard, P Smyth; E Conroy, C Burke, D Gray; J McGuirk, D Keogh; C Dowling, E Dunne, R Hayes; C Currie, C O'Sullivan, P Crummey. Subs: J McVeigh for Smyth (27); C Costello for Dowling (h-t); S McCaw for Keogh (37); O Lanigan for McGuirk (42)

 Carlow - T Dowling; J Wall, D Tobin, D Connors; A Casey, O Roberts, E Redmond; N Lynham, K McDonald; C Tracey, J Nolan, P Hynes; C Whelan, P Connors, C Nolan. Subs: A Amond for Wall (18); A Whelan for Tracey (36); N Galway for Lynham (50).
