Kilkenny manager, Brian Cody has called on the GAA to leave the format of the hurling league alone.
The legendary manager, who has been responsible for seven All-Ireland successes, has called on the Association to agree on a long-term solution and stop tinkering with the competition.
“We shouldn’t be going from no semi-finals to trying out semi-finals. We know what’s involved. We know how many weekends are available,” said the Cats boss.
“We shouldn’t be wandering from one thing to the next thing. We need to come together as an association.
“We can’t forget the whole club scene. We must get club matches played at prime hurling time. I don’t think we should be deciding on inter-county fixtures in isolation. The club scene is too important in GAA to be neglected, which I suppose it is to an extent. Some sort of streamlining of the whole GAA calendar is going to be of benefit to everybody concerned.”
