LISTEN – Mike Casey “We have a process and we stuck to it”

Limerick held Waterford to a score of 1-16 at the Gaelic grounds on Sunday, in what was the shrewdest performance points-wise by a defence so far in this years Munster Senior Hurling Championship.

Na Piarsaigh’s Mike Casey looks to have cemented his place in John Kiely’s fullback line, starting in the last two outings after he had been introduced as a substitute in Limerick’s campaign opener against Tipperary. He was included in the GAA hurling team of the week for his performance against the Deise.

Casey says that his side had a game plan coming into Sunday’s clash and stuck to it.

“We had a game plan, we have a process and we stuck to it no matter what Waterford threw at us. Whoever we play this year, we have our own way of playing and their going to have to adapt to us.”

“We have our process in terms of everyone coming back. I’d say the stats after the game with that half forward line are unbelievable. It was the same against Cork the work rate filters back and it makes our job an awful lot easier.”

This championship format has thrown up some massive second half comebacks so far, something that was addressed at half time, despite the fact that Limerick looked out of sight with a thirteen point advantage.

“We had that conversation at half time. We’ve seen that this championship has been strange, nine points seems to be a lead that isn’t enough at the moment. We just knew that we had to keep ticking over our points, keep that lead, ten, eleven, twelve points and drive it on.” Said Casey.
