Championship preparations won’t change despite early exit from the League says Brian Cody

Kilkenny face Cork in a relegation play off this Saturday

Kilkenny manager Brian Cody says their preparations for the Championship won’t change despite the early exit from the National League.

The cats face Cork on Saturday in a Relegation Play off (2pm in Nowlan Park) however with the change of structures for the league next year, the game is a dead rubber and no team will be relegated.

Brian says it’s business as usual for them.

He said “Our thoughts are the same as it would have been if we had won the game (against Wexford)”.

“The season kicks in in April and all our preparations obviously are geared towards the first game of the championship”.
