BRIAN Cody trained the Kilkenny senior hurling team for the first time in almost two months today (Sunday). He showed no ill-effects from the heart surgery he underwent on April 4 in a Dublin hospital. None of the players had any idea he would be taking the Sunday afternoon session in Nowlan Park and were delighted to see the “Boss” back.
The countdown is on for Kilkenny’s opening game in the Leinster Hurling Championship. Cody’s men will take on Offaly in the quarter-final at O’Connor Park, Tullamore on Sunday, June 9.
