Cody pays tribute to Farrell


Kilkenny manager Brian Cody paid tribute to Championship debutant Jonjo Farrell after the Thomastown forward scored 1-5 in the Leinster SHC semi-final against Dublin on Saturday.

The Cats set up a Leinster final date against either Galway or Offaly on 3 July with a convincing 1-25 to 0-16 win over Ger Cunningham's side in Portlaoise.

"1-05 is a very good return for any forward, and the scores were obviously very well taken," Cody told Sky Sports.

"Jonjo has been an important member of our panel for a few years now, a hugely committed player, and it is great to see him do so well."

The All-Ireland champions scored a goal and eight points without reply in the opening 14 minutes of the second half at O'Moore Park, and Cody says his side utilised the win to play more directly after the interval.

"The breeze doesn't win matches for you, but at the same time it is a factor," he continued.

"It was strong and were able to get the ball up the field that bit quicker in the second half.

"But it wasn't just a question of getting the ball up to the square - we picked our men out fairly well too. We are reasonably happy with the way we performed."

Cody also praised the performance of another debutant, Rob Lennon, who was a late replacement for the injured Jackie Tyrell.

"Jackie tweaked his hamstring a few days ago so he wasn't able to play today but Rob Lennon came in and did very well," he told RTE.
