Danny Sutcliffe was chosen as man of the match for his performance in the Waterford game. His 2 goals just after half time put the Dubs on the wining way and they never looked back after that.
The overall team performance was well below that of the Kilkenny and Tipperary games. Waterford were extremely poor on the day. Dublin will be delighted to stay in Div 1a and can now look forward to 3 home games next year against Galway, Tipperary and Cork.
