Mount Leinster Rangers Senior Hurling Manager Brendan Fennelly says things are going reasonably well ahead of their 3rd round clash against Naomh Eoin.
Mount Leinster Rangers have won their two matches in the Championship, and speaking to KCLR ahead of Saturday evening’s clash, Brendan says the real business of the Championship doesn’t commence until the Semi-Final stage.
“Things are going reasonably well. I mean we just picked up a couple of injuries and with the football as well, working in between so things are going pretty well. It’s low-key enough at the moment there and that’s the way it works in Carlow and then your right at Semi-Final stage and it all happens very quickly.
“There is a bit of leeway there. It would be nice if there was another competitive team in it to make it six and make the league slightly more competitive, but overall it’s going quite well and all the teams there are pretty even as such,” he said.
Brendan also added that the Galway forward Division have room for improvement from their last two games if they are to win Sunday’s All Ireland.
“I don’t think Galway have reached their peak in the Championship. They probably got to a peak in the League Final against Tipperary and surprised themselves at the time, but I don’t think they peaked against Wexford or against Tipperary in the All-Ireland Semi-Final.
“I wouldn’t say their forwards in general would have been overly happy with their game in the All-Ireland Semi-Final, and it was a nice way to win it just to get through by a puck of the ball with a bit of work to do,” he concluded.
