Week 2 Superleague Preview. - Oct 6, 2012

Facing the unknown is how UCC Demons coach Paul Kelleher describes his sides task of taking on new Superleague outfit Dublin Inter this Sunday in Cork in week two of the Nivea for Mens Superleague.

Inter surprised more than a few with a resounding debut victory over last seasons league finalists DCU Saints.

Its really facing the unknown. They are a new team in the league, their personnel will be new to us so the early minutes of the game will involve a lot of feeling out each others tendencies, says Kelleher.

Returning forward Carlton Cuff, who missed their opening weekend win away to Moycullen in Galway, will give the Leesiders a much needed physical boost on the perimeter this Sunday, an area Kelleher has concerns about.

We were destroyed on the glass by Moycullen. It is something we will have to be better at this weekend to have a chance of winning.

The game will be Dublin Inters first trip to Cork and will serve as a benchmark test for how genuine their title aspirations are following their stunning opening weekend win. Unfortunately for head coach Audrius Jonusas, the new boys on the block will have to do so without the services of some of their brightest stars including Aurimus Statkus and Mazvydas Cepilauskus, both of whom are unavailable.

Regardless, supporters can be optimistic that Inter will bring the same spirit to Cork that they held in Dublin last weekend. We had a good win but this is a new big challenge for us and we are ready to fight for it, says Jonusas.

In Dublin, both UCD Marian and DCU Saints play host to travelling teams with Moycullen of Galway and Bord Gais Neptune of Cork their respective counterparts on Saturday night.

All four teams suffered losses during the opening weekend and will be keen to avoid falling two games behind so early in the season. Players and coaches in the Moycullen, Neptune and Marian, campss will have had many restless nights over the week, contemplating what could have been as the three teams lost by a cumulative 13 points in their openers.

According to UCD Marian coach Sasa Punosevac, this Saturdays game carries extra significance for his team as it is their only home fixture in their first four outings.

I think we have more passion for this game than for any game we will play at the start of the season. We want to win it. We know a lot about Neptune, they have some very good guards but we might be able to have an advantage inside with our big players against them, he says.

The remaining game of the weekend in the Nivea for Mens Superleague takes place in Limerick where UL Eagles face Killester in a matchup that has produced a number of memorable encounters recently.

Every game between Killester and UL over the past few years has been a close affair. We realise that the shape of

Killester has changed but they certainly had a great team spirit last weekend and won a good game against UCD, said Eagles head coach Mark Keenan.

Killester have been the subject of much of the preseason talk this year, electing to go with guard Puff Summers as their American player ahead of their usually ever present star Jermaine Turner. Perhaps because of this decision, their excellent win over UCD Marian last Saturday was keenly watched by many around the league who wait to see how the new look smaller and faster Killester fare in the early stages of this year.
