“That’s what I thought honestly at the time when you asked me, maybe three months ago.

“I said to you, and if you go over your video, that Waterford weren’t going great at the time and, look, they lost three games and won one game which really didn’t matter.

“I thought Clare were going poorly and, that was based on that evidence at that point, but I still maintain this morning that Clare have one or two issues that they need to straighten out.
