The value of puckouts as seen in the four games played by both Waterford and Limerick respectively

We look at how Liam Cahill has his side scoring from restarts in the 2020 championship, but how it dropped in the Munster final against Sunday’s opponents.

Flynn explains the advantage held by John Kiely — “Limerick are in year four (of their management); Waterford are in year one, but is it really year one with Covid?” — and how that could be the difference in a tight game.

“The other big thing to me is the breaks and the rucks, and how Fergal Horgan will ref this,” says Flynn.
