Collins - Canning just one strength
27 May 2015 10:10
Galway corner-back and captain David Collins has said that the county are far from a one-man Joe Canning show ahead of their Leinster hurling championship clash with Dublin on Sunday (2pm).
-
The two sides will meet at Croke Park in the province's quarter-finals with Collins full of belief that the squad have plenty to offer other than their star man.
-
Speaking to RTÉ, Collins said: “Joe has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders and everyone is looking around at him. What we have to do is take the load off and work the rest of the guys into it.
-
“You’ve got the likes of Cathal Mannion in form. He’s really going well. Johnny Glynn is another guy there. David Burke is coming back.
-
“Joe is a major part of our set-up – yes. But the game doesn’t revolve around Joe, which is great."
-
Collins also highlighted that while the Dubs presented a major challenge they are looking forward to the clash at GAA HQ.
-
“We’re looking forward to it. We didn’t finish the league well, so we’ve had a nice seven or eight-week lead-up to this game and the lads are looking forward to it," said Collins.
-
“Dublin are in good form, they were unlucky against Cork [in the league semi-finals]. They kind of threw it away if you ask me.”
