The Kilkenny Senior hurlers have a weekend off following this defeat to Wexford in the Leinster round robin last weekend.
However it won’t be a feet up kind of job as the Kilkenny management can’t be happy with the defeat last weekend.
Kilkenny will also be wary of the threat Galway can bring following their defeat to Henry Shefflin’s side a few weeks back.
The talk around Kilkenny, Wexford, Galway and the Leinster senior hurling championship spilled into the Full Time Show this week, and of course they discussed the Leinster final which takes place on June 4.
KCLR analyst Michael Walsh has echoed the sentiments of Kilkenny manager Brian Cody in saying improvements will be needed by the Cats ahead of the Leintster final in just under two weeks time.
“An awful of imropvement will have to be done in that case, those round robin (games), it’s crazy the way it’s gone this year” said Michael.
“When you have to come and win the matches like Cork and Waterford the week before, it’s amazing what you’ll go through to win it, and Wexford came with that intent on Saturday, Kilkenny will be dissappointed, but they have a couple of weeks to get ready and get prepared”.
“I’d say training this week and next week will be fairly lively because I know the Kilkenny management will not be happy with the manner of the performance rather than the defeat”.
