Cullen en­sured the Dubs were fresh

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - THE TITLE -

DEAN ROCK cred­its the work of Bryan Cullen as strength and con­di­tion­ing coach for keep­ing Dublin much fresher this sum­mer, as they com­pleted their three-in-a-row. And he reck­ons that Bal­ly­mun Kick­hams will now ben­e­fit from that as they gear up for their Dublin se­nior foot­ball Cham­pi­onship semi-fi­nal against Kil­macud Crokes next week­end.

‘I think I am a lot fresher than this time last year and a lot of the lads feel ex­tremely fresh now,’ Rock said.

‘It’s the same time for Philly [McMa­hon], [John] Smally, Evan [Comer­ford] and James [McCarthy].

‘We have all come back from a hard sea­son af­ter win­ning the All-Ire­land and we are all in re­ally good shape.

‘In pre­vi­ous years, we have come back with some sort of nig­gle or in­jury, but every­one is per­fect.

‘That is due to the fact we came back a lit­tle bit later in the sea­son and then we man­aged to peak at the right time and win the All-Ire­land and that was ob­vi­ously the main ob­jec­tive.

‘Great credit to Bryan Cullen and all the lads for plan­ning that one out.’
