Watch: Total Football As Sublime Crokes Deliver Utter Hammering

Watch: Total Football As Sublime Crokes Deliver Utter Hammering

Dr. Crokes roared to a Munster final after a stunning performance saw them hammer Cork champions St. Finbarr's 5-20 to 2-11. Incredibly, every Crokes score came from play.

The Kerry kingpins prospered in horrendous conditions to land five sublime goals including two in the first half from Johnny Buckley and Daithi Casey. Buckley, who traded the Kerry captaincy last year for exile in 2018, scored a superb individual goal after flicking the ball up to himself with his right foot and burying it with his left.

If the first was individual, the second was a team effort. The Kerry side worked the ball up the field before Daithí Casey sprinted through the middle and blasted it into the top corner.

Crokes were denied a Munster title last year when Nemo Rangers sprung a surprise, but Pat O'Shea's side look determined to right that this time round.

The Kerry side sprung Colm Cooper from the bench and the eight-time All-Star immediately made an impact as he collected a long ball, laid it in long, ran on to collect it and set up Micheál Burns.

Buckley was deservedly awarded Man of the Match. They will progress to face the winners of St Josephs Milltown and the Nire in the Munster final.
