Hurling review: August Destiny

AND THEN there were four. Waterford took their time to flex enough muscle to shake off the Dubs – they’re now in an All-Ireland semi-final with only one loss to their names all year – while Cork’s miserable weekend in both codes was capped by a serious slump to Galway.

Fittingly, the results mean Cork fall out of the top four, leaving the semi-finals as a combination of first-plays-third and second-plays-fourth. It might be the finale that this flat championship needs.
