Limerick’s smash-mouth hurling | Galway’s fading forces | Deise power-charged | Cats collapse again

Monday Hurling picks over the bones of Waterford’s thrilling All-Ireland SHC semi-final win over Kilkenny, and Limerick edging past Galway

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney pick over the bones of Waterford’s thrilling All-Ireland SHC semi-final win over Kilkenny, and Limerick edging past Galway.

BY SHANE STAPLETON
It was an All-Ireland SHC semi-final weekend that left us more with more questions than answers.

Are Waterford ready to win the Liam MacCarthy Cup for the first time since 1959 — coming off the back of two winless seasons — in Liam Cahill’s maiden season at the helm?

Many believed that one of Brian Cody’s greatest achievements was to lead his current crop to an All-Ireland final in 2019, but what is Kilkenny’s trajectory after their season again ended in a collapse?

How can Limerick dominate so much of their semi-final clash with Galway, yet the game be level going into injury time?

Can Joe Canning absorb the blow of another injury and make it back to his top level for 2021, and is Davy Burke part of Shane O’Neill’s plans based on recent games?

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney pore over all the big hurling stories from the weekend at all grade.
