Kilkenny senior hurling manager Brian Cody will be reappointed at a County Board meeting tonight

Another season in the hot seat is on the cards with news that Brian Cody is to be reappointed as Kilkenny senior hurling manager.

The move, which would take the most successful manager in the history of hurling into a 20th season in charge of the Cats, is to be ratified at a County Board meeting tonight (Tuesday).

Cody was first appointed senior hurling manager in 1998, replacing Kevin Fennelly. In that time he had led the Cats in a golden era, winning 11 All-Ireland senior hurling titles, 15 Leinster titles and eight National League crowns.
