Former Kilkenny goalie Michael Walsh says that Michael Fennelly’s influence in games has a massive bearing on how Kilkenny do.
The Ballyhale Shamrocks clubman has been ruled out of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling final with an achilles tendon, and the KCLR analyst says that the management Team will come up with a plan to ensure his absence is compensated….
“He wins ball that nobody else can win. He comes out with ball and is so inspiring for the rest of the team”
“He pops up with the odd score, but it’s his overall influence around that middle third that is absolutely vital to Kilkenny”
“You can see that when he plays really well, Kilkenny generally do as well and when he’s a bit off like he was on the Sunday before they struggled a bit, but Brian will be hatching a plan to make sure that the effectiveness of the Kilkenny Team won’t be in anyway hindered and that’s the way they are going to have to go about it, and I am sure on the day, that will happen again”
