Power expects Cody to carry on


Former Kilkenny forward Richie Power says he expects manager Brian Cody to carry on "for the foreseeable future".

The 62-year-old is the sport's most successful manager, winning a record 11 All-Ireland titles since becoming Cats' manager in 1998.

Eight-time All-Ireland champion and two-time All-Star Power, who retired from inter-county hurling in January, says Cody's decision to retire from his teaching job will persuade him to extend his Kilkenny career.

"I don’t think the end is anywhere near. He’s recently retired from his position in his primary school. Again, it’s freed up a bit more time for him," Power said.

"I certainly don’t see any reason why he won’t continue. The talent is there and if there’s talent there, Brian will certainly find it."

Power thinks this year's All-Ireland will go to form, with Kilkenny meeting Tipperary in the final, but feels his county will deal better with the gap between the provincial finals at the start of July and the semi-finals in August.

"They are the two in-form teams of the year. Kilkenny are pros with dealing with the five week gap between the Leinster final and a semi-final so I don’t see that being an issue," he said.

"Maybe Tipperary might come in a little bit cold. It has happened in the past. It has caught them out in the past. That might catch them.

"Certainly going on form, I can’t see Tipperary or Kilkenny being caught in the semi-final and it will be an unbelievable All-Ireland final if that is to happen."
