Exactly. Next year might draw a blank ok but some good young lads there developing away could come good 2 years from now. The biggest issue might be if Mr Cody stays on though to develop these lads. A new manager might feel pressure to deliver straight away and lose focus on developing the younger lads.
All if and buts. Waterford could come to the fore, but we thought Clare would and they never did. Tipp don't have a history for staying at the top too long.
Kilkennys great asset is nobody in Leinster looks like taking over from them. They'll be in Ai quarters most years and from there on who'd really want to get them?
