Agree with the comments. Laois tore through us and should have won by a lot more, if they'd taken a higher proportion of chances. We were cleaned out at midfield again, and the full back line was very weak; Bolton a liability with McGrillen unable for Kingston's strength. Forward line is struggling badly for form with every scoring chance being laboured. Very hard even to pick a man of the match for Kildare but maybe Flood gets it for a good recovery after Westmeath. Laois weren't brilliant themselves but were well up for it and had fine midfield performances from Quigley and Meaney.
Hopefully this is a case of "it's only the league" and there'll be a miraculous recovery come June 5th but right now a date with Louth in Navan is not something to warm the cockles, even if Louth haven't been pulling in trees in Division 3. They always seem to have a hoodoo over us in the c'ship.
Flood 7 (good double save in first half, better kick outs)
Bolton 4 (how many frees does he have to give away before he's dropped ?)
Earley 6 (should have seen the line, hope there were no videos. Hope also his injury is not too bad)
Whyte 5 (why is he taking 45's still instead of Johnny ?)
Subs : Flynn 6, Heffernan 6, O'Neill 6
