Paul Murphy has no issue with playing the Munster SFC final on a Saturday evening.

The Kerry wing back, who has seen plenty of Saturday night action in the Allianz League, revealed to the Irish Examiner that he enjoys having his Sundays off.

"It affects work on a Friday, but fellas would have to take off work on the Friday before a Sunday game anyway so it's not a huge deal," he said.

"In a lot of ways, I would [prefer to have Sunday off], particularly at club level. I enjoy having a Saturday game because you have Sunday to recover. With a county game, you might have the Monday booked off work anyway so you have the Monday to recover, but yeah I nearly would prefer the Saturday night game, to be honest."
