Former Kilkenny hurler Richie Power says other counties will have to go back to basics to try and find a way to compete with Limerick over the next few years.
The treaty men thrashed Cork in the All Ireland final last weekend.
Limerick changed their underage structures around 10 years ago and introduced an academy and Cork is working on it too, Richie says every county will have to look at their own setup.
“Teams will be probably going back to pre-season in December and January, looking at Limerick and how do we beat Limerick and trying to come up with a game plan of how to beat Limerick,” said Richie.
“To be honest, I think it’s just, every team themselves needs to get back to the basics and I think a lot of counties need to look at their underage structures to kind of plan for success whether it be seven, eight, ten years time rather than instant success”.
“That’s what Limerick have done and now they’re seeing the rewards for that”.
