Dubs overwhelm Westmeath, will face fit, organized Kildare in final

The numbers are overwhelming. They led by 13 points at half-time, ended up winning by 27 (the second time in two months they’d done so against Westmeath who’d suffered a similar hammering in the league). Bernard Brogan scored 2-8, while Jason Sherlock kicked six points from play.
Their lines of running and slickness of passing resembled nothing so much as an expertly-drilled rugby team at times and Westmeath really had no answer to it all.
There’ll be other games and tougher test and everybody knows that Dublin can’t quite be trusted just yet having flattered to deceive so many times in the past. They have a definite weakness in their full-back line where David Henry and Rory O’Carroll were given a tough afternoon by inside forwards who were living on scraps all day and so it would do to be getting carried away with Dublin’s chances. But they did what they had to do in Croke Park last Sunday and they did it emphatically. That’s enough for now.
