I agree. I cant honestly see too many willing to do it as I see it from my own 2 clubs perspectives that lads cant manage 2 codes at club level and 1 intercounty team even at the min.

yellar that's where accommodation needs to come in and i would suggest your own two clubs need to practice that more too, but he is one who would do both if accommodated

hometown, i do see your point and i think back to the 90s where eire og players would return and lads were dropped and upset and rightly so, but equallly so, is it fair playing fellas who are out of their depth and building them up when you know what's coming, i think if done right and explained and put in a way that puts the county first it could work

I dont think it would work tbh. Its too big a commitment at this stage and lads wouldnt train knowing this. It evens happens at club level, in all our clubs, where lads get peeved at the returning star, whos brought in late in the year etc. I dont think too many of the hurlers would be interested. Good enough, yes, but cant see it happen. Too much on, too many games to juggle. Can work for a few but most dont stick with it in modern times in most counties.
