Ballygunner manager Fergal Hartley insists that there are no easy games in the Munster club SHC.
Having guided his native club to a fifth consecutive county title when defeating Abbeyside last Sunday, Hartley now must focus on the provincial campaign.
They will begin the Munster club SHC with a quarter-final clash against Cork representatives Midleton on October 28 and Hartley stressed to the Waterford News & Star that they will get nothing easy.
“It’s a very tough draw,” said Hartley. “It’s two games to even get to a Munster final. I remember playing in Munster championships many years ago and sometimes you pick up an odd handy game.
“There’s no such thing as a handy game in Munster club anymore. That’s the way it is.”
