Dublin minor hurling panel report as clean bill of health as they prepare for Sunday’s Leinster MHC Final against Kilkenny in Croke Park (2.0)
“We have no injury concerns affecting any of our extended panel and that is very encouraging, that the players are all fighting fit and looking forward to Sunday’s match,” says Dublin manager, Johnny McGuirk.
“It’s a great occasion for all the players to be involved in and especially as we are playing against the current Leinster and All-Ireland holders.
“However, while we have the height of respect for Kilkenny and know that we have a tough game ahead, we are purely focused on what we have to do next Sunday.
“To have a chance, we need to adhere to our plan and tactics and prepare as well as we can for the challenge that is in front of us.
“We will continue to play to our strengths as a panel and continue to back each other up and support each other like we have been doing all year at training, challenge matches and in our two games so far in the championship against Offaly and Westmeath.
“Kilkenny may be the standard-bearer in Leinster and they never seem to have a poor team out any day but we are definitely not allowing ourselves to think too much about them and we are certainly going out there with a view to winning the game,” added Johnny.
