Cork edged out Kilkenny in a thrilling encounter at Pairc Ui Chaoimh. Conor Lehane shot 0-11 (0-09) in a fine individual performance and send the Rebels to 2nd place in the league standings.
Brian Cody and his management will be quite happy though as the game was nip and tuck for the most part. Their was little to separate the teams and that’s the way it planned out at the final whistle. Cork will now travel to Wexford Park this coming weekend, while Kilkenny will host Clare at Nowlan Park.
Player of the Game: Conor Lehane was superb throughout the game but their was also other candidates on both teams. However, his impressive haul of 0-11 gets Lehane the nod for man of the match.
