They lost heavily to Clare in their first game 1-27 to 0-14, before also losing out to Dublin 0-20 to 0-09 and Kilkenny 3-21 to 0-09. Furthermore, Colm Bonnar will look to players like Marty Kavanagh, John Michael Nolan and Chris Nolan to provide the much needed scores to get a win here. Speaking to KCLR Radio Bonnar said following the loss to Dublin, “Just looking at it I suppose overall, 0-9, we do need to carry out more of a scoring threat, but we have a lot of serious players that haven’t been available to us for this league, and even on the bench we weren’t able to bring them on”.
