Dublin hurling captain, Stephen Hiney, is hoping that his team will reproduce the form shown in recent matches against Wexford and Kilkenny when they take on Limerick in the All Ireland quarter final in Thurles on Sunday. A win would see the Dubs reach their first All Ireland semi-final since 1961.
“A place in the All-Ireland semi-final is what is on offer on Sunday” says Hiney, ” and its up to us to make it happen”. The Ballyboden player would relish another big day in Croke Park, but stresses that they are taking one game at a time. “We won’t be jumping ahead of ourselves, something we have probably been guilty of in the past”.
He puts the fact that the bookies have Dublin as slight favourites down to Limerick’s result in the previous round against Laois. “At the same time being favourites is something we may have to start living with as we get better results” says Hiney.
