Kilkenny have very much copied the Galway / Tipp / Limerick model for developing hurlers.

Their U20 side were huge bar a couple. All tall, sturdy, pacey lads. DJ Carey was on the sideline and I was wondering if a lad of his stature would get a look in these days (of course he would) Intercounty is becoming a big-man's game. A bit like the backs in rugby.

Itís going that way all right,when Joe Canning started out,he was a big man at 6Ē3,now heís 5th biggest of the galway forwards.

Laois is a decade behind the serious hurling counties in terms of S&C,last winter was the first time this was addressed with the u14/15 squads.

Kilkenny were producing big hurlers long before Galway Tipp or Limerick ever did.

Kilkenny for the Hurlers,Tipperary for the men was a saying long before your time,Don
These Johnny come latelys, you couldn't be dealing with them.

Thatís why I tend to ignore you

Skilful team but lacked two things: Killer instinct and physicality.

We've always had the odd lad from Galmoy playing with us. Half of their catchment area is in Laois strangely enough.
Kinda like the Moneygall thing
