Dublin hurling manager Anthony Daly believes the decision to switch his side's NHL games to Croke Park will hand an advantage to their opponents.
Daly believes visiting sides find it difficult to perform at Parnell Park, where the Metropolitans have had an impressive record in recent seasons.
"I'd say Tipp and Kilkenny are looking forward to it. There is an element about Parnell Park and we might be harder to beat in there," he said.
But he supports the move to GAA headquarters. "You have to look at the bigger picture. If you're a player isn't it a fantastic thing to be looking forward to playing under lights at Croker against the top two teams in the country? Where can you buy that? All the lads will be really looking forward to that. It's a great opportunity."
