Kilkenny senior hurling manager Brian Cody is hoping to get more from the league from what they have already got out of it.
The Cats are set to face David Fitzgerald’s Wexford side for the second time this calendar year, having already gotten the better of them in the Walsh Cup in January.
Speaking to KCLR after Sunday’s victory away to Dublin, Brian says the League has always been important.
“Like as ever, it gives an opportunity to give players a run”, says Cody.
“We have some very inexperienced players in there and we have quite a few players out with injury as well. Obviously, the league is always important to us, because it’s competitive matches and it’s a hugely competitive division.”
“Next Sunday again is a straight knock-out so it’s going to be real interesting and we don’t want the end of it to be next Sunday for sure but we already got a good bit out of it and we hope to get more.”
Thrown-in is booked for 4pm this Sunday afternoon. Tickets for the game are €15 in advance or €20 on the gate.
