Quiz: Name The Dublin Starting Team From Their Last Leinster Defeat

Quiz: Name The Dublin Starting Team From Their Last Leinster Defeat

The date was the 27th of June, 2010, the time was five past Cluxton.

Still searching for that elusive All-Ireland title, Dublin were hoping to get into the flow of the championship with their sixth Leinster Championship in a row. However, their quest would come undone at the hands of their old nemesis: Meath.

Two goals from Stephen Bray, another from Cian Ward and a goal apiece from Joe Sheridan and Brian Farrell helped the Royals reach a first Leinster Final in nine years. They would go on to win that final against Louth in the most dramatic of circumstances, while Dublin would fade into oblivion, never to be seen again. Given that no one ever heard of any of those Dublin players ever again, we thought we'd pose you a little challenge. Can you name the starting team from that defeat to Meath?

In all seriousness, you should get 11 or 12 easily enough but the final few will definitely test you.
