There are no “silly” things such as “defensive systems” in Fitzgibbon Cup hurling, says UCC selector Ray Delaney.
Speaking to GAA.ie ahead of tonight’s final showdown with IT Carlow in DCU’s Sportsgrounds (7.30pm), Delaney revealed what appeals to him about the third level competition.
“For me an awful lot of Fitzgibbon is played off the cuff, which is better hurling, at times, for supporters certainly.
“You don't have time to work with players, who are with their counties and some are with their clubs late into the year. It is a case of going out to play.
“There is no such things as defensive systems or 17 players behind the ball or anything silly like that. It is a case of 'lads we are going out, we are playing a game of hurling, we score 20 points, if we score more than the opposition we will win the game and fellas are free to express themselves, to showcase their skill levels and talent.”Tweet
