Cork V Laois

(Oldest Posts First)

Two teams who have never met in the All Ireland senior football championship. It's huge for both with a place in the Super 8s at stake.

Cork to win this in my opinion but it would hardly be a shock of the century contender if laois got the win.

Tricky draw. I was hoping for Cavan. Laois have a knack for Ulster teams.

Can't see us turning over Cork in a neutral venue.

Laois to make Cork at least sweat, if not more.

If Cork put in the same level of performance as against Kerry then they will win by 7/8 points.

But Laois play to a rigid, disciplined system, which they are well drilled in and have been embedding for 2 years, Cork forwards won't get the same space as they did against Kerry, and I expect the Laois midfield to at least break even.

Cork the lowest ranked team left in the championship as per 2020 league standings, so it is as good a draw as Laois could've hoped for.

On saying that, Cork 1/2 in the bookies and rightfully so after their Kerry performance...but I reckon Laois to sneak it by 2 points!

Maybe the 7 day turnaround had an effect on the Laois performance against Cork. Laois seemed to fade badly. It's happened to Cork in the past 2015 · Kildare defeated Cork by 1-21 to 1-13 in the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship seven days after losing to Kerry
