Colm Cooper was at his first Leinster final in Croke Park yesterday and watched Dublin rack up their seventh provincial crown in a row.
Watching the Dubs up close as a pundit, he was so impressed with the sheer pace they bring to every aspect of their play.
He says the performance against Kildare was a serious marker and a statement that anybody who wants to take Dublin's titles will have to come up with something very special.
And he wonders if anybody can reach the standard this season.
