Kilmacud Crokes sharpshooter Oisin O’Rorke believes the Dublin champions can end Ballyhale Shamrocks’ run in Sunday’s Leinster club senior hurling championship final (2.30pm).

The Kilkenny kingpins are gunning for their fourth Leinster crown in-a-row this weekend at Croke Park and, speaking to RTE Sport ahead the decider, O’Rorke says Crokes are well aware of the task at hand.

"There's no point turning up if you don't think you're going to win," he stated.

"We said literally straight after the game on Sunday when we got the win, we had a chat on the pitch after, and we said we had to make sure that we're coming back next week for one reason and that's to make sure we walk up the steps and lift the trophy.

"We're a very driven team and we set goals for ourselves. Our main goal this year was winning Dublin but going on from that we said there's more silverware to win this year. We're there definitely to get a good performance out of ourselves and get out on the right side of the result at the end on Sunday."
