AIB Club Hurler of the Year Adrian Mullen has set his sights on nailing down a place on Kilkenny’s starting 15.

The Ballyhale Shamrocks star described a phone call he received from Brian Cody inviting him into the Cats’ senior set-up as “unreal” when speaking to Sky Sports and added: “You're probably a bit shocked, it was a very weird moment.

“You're just thinking when you're a young lad, to get in there for a few training sessions.

“Brian was very lenient and said to just concentrate on club and we went in [to county] after.

“Myself, Darren [Mullen] and Evan Shefflin have been brought in. It's great being there. We've had a few short sessions with them. It's been good so far.

“Intensity is higher, it's just a different standard altogether. You just have to adapt to that, use every session to get better.”
