Kilkenny Rugby Head Coach Packie Henebry identifies Tullow as a “massive game in the race for promotion”

Kilkenny and Tullow do battle this Sunday at Blackgates

Kilkenny Rugby Club Head Coach Packie Henebry says that Sunday’s Leinster League clash away to Tullow is going to be a massive game in the race for promotion.

Speaking to KCLR, Packie says the two teams bring the best out of one another.

“Ah sure it is and it was always going to be that way because Tullow started off very well at the start of the season.

“They were getting bonus points every week and they looked like they were going to run away with it at one stage and then we started to get a few results and so did Suttonians and it’s very very tight up at the top of the table now.

“There is only three points between ourselves and Suttonians and then Tullow are a point behind us again so this is a massive game and it was always going to be that way and always tight affairs between Kilkenny and Tullow.

“It doesn’t matter how good or bad the teams are, we always seem to get the best out of one another,” he said.
