Seven-time All Ireland winner with Kilkenny Brian Hogan is not a fan of the new rules we are currently experiencing in hurling.
Speaking to Scoreline’s Clash Act podcast, the O’Loughlin Gaels man spoke of his worry that the natural flow of the game is being so severely interrupted.
“It’s common sense, the best refs, the refs we loved hurling under, were the guys who just, you didn’t know who they were, and the matches they just let the game flow, they reffed by common sense (sic)” said Brian.
“Hurling is an instinctive sport, it drives me mad the water breaks at the moment because it’s just another opportunity for the game to stop”.
The thing I used to love about hurling was thinking your way through the match, you go out with the best-laid plans but after 10 minutes the game takes on a life of its own” he added.
