Eoin Larkin critical of Kilkenny's work-rate and attitude

After the Clare game, the 2008 hurler of the year took to Twitter saying the younger players needed a "never give up" attitude.

While speaking on Newstalk's Off The Ball, he felt the decision to play Padraig Walsh at full-back wasn't the right move.

    "The full-back line concerns me the most. I don't think you can afford to take Padraig Walsh out of the half back line and put him in at full-back.

    "He's not a natural full-back."

Larkin disagreed with the comparison with JJ Delaney moving to full-back stating it was an exception to the rule.

    "I'd like to see Paul Murphy go back for a few games."
