Peter Casey relishes the “Knockout” format of the U21 championship

The Na Piarsaigh man is looking forward to the Gaelic Grounds clash

Speaking to the42.ie Peter Casey is relishing this tie due to the knockout nature of the under 21 Munster championship. Limerick will be looking for their third title in 2 years on Wednesday and Casey is looking forward to the freedom of under 21 hurling compared to other grades due to less emphasis on defensive sytems and more emphasis on going out and simply playing.

“I think that’s what makes it so unique,” 

“It’s knockout and that’s what makes it so entertaining for the people watching. For us playing, there are no sweepers and management probably don’t have too much time with the players, so there’s no real chance to implement systems, you just go out and express yourself.

“I’m sure the two teams will be going at it hammer and tongs. If you looked at the game yesterday [Waterford v Wexford], anyone in a full-forward line would hated it. From that point of view, you love it when it’s one-on-one and I’m sure the backs love it as well.

“To be fair to Davy Fitzgerald, that’s what some teams have to do in order to compete, there’s nothing wrong with it.”

Casey was one of five current U21 to feature as Limerick exited the senior championship against Kilkenny at the start of July. As well as the primary aim of securing silverware, he hopes that this year’s U21 run can also lay the groundwork for next year at senior level.

Let’s hope the side can deliver on Wednesday evening and give long suffering Limerick hurling supporters something to cheer about.
