Absolutely nobody is expecting Cork to win but the players certainly have to perform with controlled aggression and huge passion. To fight to the bitter end. Otherwise, their refusal to travel over the county bounds will have been for nothing.
Cork do have a bit of punch in attack themselves. Brian Hurley will captain the team and, despite his own injury issues over the years, is always an absolute joy to watch. Indeed he managed to pilfer 1-3 last season in that dismal 22-point hammering.
