Irish Examiner hurling analyst Donal O'Grady tackles two key issues ahead of this Saturday’s All-Ireland SHC qualifiers.
Limerick failed to put pressure on the Clare goalkeeper in the Allianz Hurling League semi-final and had to be content with scoring from further out the field.
Here, Donal devises a Limerick plan to draw Clare out and create space.
Declan Hannon and James Ryan are the key men.
How Wexford can attempt to shut down the Cork dangerman
Alan Cadogan has been Cork’s key attacker so far in the championship.
Donal believes shutting down Cadogan will be vital if Wexford are to get a foothold in this week’s qualifier and he feels it is worth using a wing-back to double-team the Douglas man early in the game.
On Friday, Donal O’Grady turns his attention to the tactics of Sunday’s Munster hurling final.
