Brian Cody is glowing with enthusiasm as he embarks on his 23rd season in-a-row as Kilkenny senior hurling manager.

The Cats supremo never lost it, as he watched his side grind out a 1-20 to 0-18 victory over Dublin in yesterday's Allianz League Group B clash. He admitted it was great to be back on the sideline after an extended lay-off.

"We’re back out on the field, we’re hurling. It’s just great to be out there," Cody said in his post-match interview at Parnell Park.

"It was the first game after being out for so long. Everybody was wondering what the hurling would be like.

“Great credit to the lads, to the physical trainer and physios, the way they came back in such good shape."

He continued: "Physically they lasted the pace fairly well, and their hurling was decent. But the thing I liked most was the attitude. Top class I thought."
