Carlow senior hurling captain Richie Coady says Saturday’s defeat against Limerick is something they will have to learn lessons from if they are going to be able to challenge the top teams.

Carlow found themselves on the receiving end of a heavy defeat, Limerick running out 5-22 to 0-13 winners

Speaking to KCLR after Saturday’s game, Richie says they are going to have to go back to the drawing board if they are going to be able to compete.

“Physically, going up against a team like Limerick who are Liam MacCarthy contenders, you have to be at your best physical ability”, said Coady post-match.

“Even after 10 minutes, especially with the sun and the weather like, your legs felt like stone. It was a step up in class.”

“It’s something that we will have to learn lessons from now and we will have to go back to the drawing board. I suppose when Colm gives us the call back in 2019 and we will take lessons from today, it’s all about learning and we will learn from today.”
