Hickey lauds Bennis effect

31 August 2007
Top class Limerick hurler Seamus Hickey has moved to heap praise on the man-management skills of team-manager Richie Bennis ahead of this Sunday’s All-Ireland SHC final clash with Kilkenny.

Hickey reckons boss Bennis ignited his own career by placing a lot of trust in him:
"The air in the camp is very positive," says Hickey.

"You can’t express how nice it is to hurl for someone that is so encouraging all the time.

"He brings a positive energy, his simple love for the game drives him on.

"It’s contagious really for the players."
