WATCH: John Kiely looking to put “best performance forward” against Kilkenny

This Limerick side are no strangers to facing Kilkenny in the hurling championship after coming unstuck against the Cats in Nowlan Park this time last summer.

That 0-20 to 0-17 loss last year will be on the minds of all Limerick people this weekend as the treaty side look tk exact their revenge on Kilkenny and Brian Cody.

This will be Cody’s sixth time facing Limerick and he is yet to taste defeat at their hands. Kilkenny accounted for Limerick in our last All Ireland final appearance in 07′.

However, Kilkenny look as vulnerable as they have ever under Cody’s stewardship and this Sunday is the perfect opportunity for a Limerick ambush.

Limerick boss John Kiely, says his side will have learned from last years defeat and is focusing on putting in a quality performance.

“It’s our second time meeting them in 12 months, we know what to expect. It’s a case of going out and putting our best performance forward, back ourselves and trust the players to do that.”

“If our performance isn’t good enough, it doesn’t matter who you’re playing, you’re not going to win, that’s that.”

Limerick go into the game looking for a first championship win over the cats since the 1973 All Ireland and Kiely knows that only a complete 70 minute performance from his side will be good enough to get over the line.
