I find it very interesting people say 3 weeks on the trot will suit Kilkenny…
2017 knocked out of Leinster and beat Limerick in a qualifier by 3 points. Knocked out the following week by Waterford.
2015, 2016 and 2017 they won Leinster and won the all ireland in 15 and 16.
2013 knocked out of leinster and beat tipp, the following week beat waterford in extra time and two weeks after that they were beaten by cork by 5 points in an all ireland quarter final.
Even if you look at 2018. Galway round robin was the third game on the trot and they were hammered. 2 week break and they beat wexford. 3 week break and they draw with galway. 7 days later they are hammered by galway. 2016 and 2010 are the only years KK didn’t win Leinster and win the all ireland. I’d say codys style is based on leinster semi, leinster final, all ireland semi and final. All these games don’t suit Kilkennys style at all. They are built to peak with two weeks and three weeks rest required to recharge and go again.
