Can De La Salle stop Ballygunner’s bid for a sixth Waterford SHC success in-a-row? Kevin Moran hopes they can spring a surprise in Walsh Park tomorrow.

“Someone will have to take them down at some stage but they are a fair outfit, no doubt about it,” the two-time All-Star says in an interview in today’s Irish Independent.

“It's getting to a stage now where they are winning nearly everything they're competing for. They're in the intermediate county final as well with their second team and while they have the resources, they are definitely making the most of what they have.”

He continued: “It'd be nice to put a stop to their six-in-a-row, of course it would, but they've been deserving champions in Waterford for the last five years, even more than that. Someone has to take them down but they're winning so much around them that they're getting used to it.

“They're expecting to win and it'll be difficult. They'd probably admit as well, though, that we're the closest team to them and you've got the two best teams in the county facing each other.”
