Can understand why he isn't blooding new players. The league starts soon and it will be very tight for promotion. He needs to have the big hurlers fit and sharp and probably peaking in the next few weeks. Ryan is probably in his last year as the manager and this year he needs tangible results after some years of solid competitiveness. That's his motivation, not developing lads. He has had his few years to develop the hurlers he wants.
Replying To wd45: "Trying the same players over and over and expecting different results. - not going to happen. Teams like Carlow, Meath, Kildare and Kerry are passing us by."
We are hardly Cork with 100 hurling clubs but I agree a few more changes might unearth some new talent.To be fair apart from Aonghus Clarke and Joey Boyle every player of potential county standard seems to be in. Heard Niall O Brien was back today in Galway I don't think Kerry or Carlow are passing us out but of a very equal standard it's a bounce of a ball or a player missing who decides.Meath are on the up putting big work in but Kildare are wanting to be Kilkenny B.
