Busting myth of Waterford kids

IT'S 1 of the great myths that Waterford are a very young team.

The 15 that Derek McGrath Munster final defeat was actually older than Tipp.
The Deise have brought through youth too but it's worth noting that 10 of the side that started at Semple did for the opener with Cork last season. Darren Gleeson - is 10 years older than O'Keeffe.
The average age 25.3 for the Munster final dropped to 25.1 for the win over Dublin on Sunday as Eddie Barrett (25) was replaced by Darragh Fives (23) and Shane Bennett (18) came in for brother Stephen (19).
The latter was the sole Deise teenager in XV, 9 months younger than Dublin's Shane Barrett.
Galway named the youngest starting team of any of the final six in the 2015 ch. And again goalkeeper Colm Callanan is 32
McGrath isn't throwing lambs out to the slaughter, in defence one of the Decies that started on Sunday made his ch debut Shane Bennett.
In 2014, McGrath and Dan Shanahan felt compelled to hold the panel inside the dressing room for long periods of reflection following league hammerings to Clare and Kilkenny.
McGrath had to learn on the go in his first season, and all of the tough lessons have been quickly put to use and exhibited through the competitive record this campaign. league and ch 2015, they have played 11 games: winning nine, drawing one and losing to Tipp.
Nowlan Park and Cusack Park batterings taught the Deise that their defence cannot be left so exposed, hence the sweeper and deeply-operating forwards this year.
The evolution of his team was clear against the Dubs. Austin Gleeson took his vim to midfield and Colin Dunford played more like an orthodox 15 than we'd previously seen in 2015; De Burca often had to fight his own battles.
Cody has proven to be a master tactician over the years so he'll be planning for Waterford's plans, he doesn't need to worry about the Deise having more legs because his entire 15 is just nine years older overall.
The fact that the Cats seem mature is down to winning your way through transition. To beat them, the Deise must realise that the time is now.

Average age of most recent championship XV
Galway 24.7
Waterford 25.1
Tipperary 25.2
Kilkenny 25.7
Dublin 25.7
Cork 26
