Daly did the same thing a couple of years with having loads of games this time of year. I think there is one time we played Galway and Tipp simultaneously. Without knowing the ins and outs of it, there is no point second guessing them, they have a plan I’m sure.
Although I always though of hurling in January and February and hurling for the rest of the year as two different sports nearly. The cold has a huge effect on guys ability to be skilful. They might warm up at some stage of the game, but it isn’t as fast as a lot of people think.
