John Kiely “very much looking forward” to league final


Limerick and Waterford will contest a first ever league final between the two counties on Sunday. Both sides will have been very happy with their league campaigns thus far.

Waterford beat Galway twice despite losing to Dublin while Limerick suffered just the one loss to Cork and demonstrated superb battling qualities to take a point from their encounter with Clare.

Speaking to Sporting Limerick Kiely is relishing the encounter with their Munster rivals on Sunday.

“I’m very much looking forward to it, I suppose we have had a good campaign so far. We have enjoyed it, we have got a lot of game time into a lot of players across the panel. We are very much looking forward to the final of it now and it’s a nice way to finish out the league for us.”

An injury ravaged Waterford didn’t make it out of Munster last year but Kiely says they are a different beast this year and will pose a huge challenge.

“Their injuries have cleared up and they are playing good hurling, they got beat by Dublin up in Dublin but they turned around then and beat Galway twice.

“They’ve done really well, I think we are going to have our hands full with them on Sunday, their tails are up so we are going to have to be at our very best to take then on.”
