We were three up, we won the ball back, we decided to start to go backways with it and we end up losing it in the corner. But the initial movement of going backways, we're trying to get out of the game in Galway and unfortunately, we didn't tonight. One or two players still are stuck in reverse. It cost us in the end big time.

FOR Padraic Joyce, last weekend's trip to the Kingdom was sure to rekindle special memories of his days with Tralee RTC in late 90s, and a time when they were masters of all they surveyed in the Sigerson Cup, winning a three in-a-row with one of the greatest sides to ever grace the famous third-level competition.
