Eddie Brennan is hoping his Laois team can learn from Saturday night's Allianz Hurling League quarter-final defeat to Limerick in Portlaoise.

Despite including just six of their All-Ireland winning team in their starting line-up, the Treaty County still had way too much for the hosts as they cruised to a 17-point victory.

“At the end of the day we’re a McDonagh [Joe McDonagh Cup] team, so are we going to face into a team as slick and as well-drilled as that again? Probably not. But look I’d be saying there’s definitely loads of learning. We showed in flashes, but they are a top-tier team and that showed," the Kilkenny legend said.

“So when you have that, you’re facing a team that are not going to give you a whole lot, I didn’t expect that of them but at the same time I still think there were so many aspects to it.”
