Clare’s Tony Kelly is certainly not getting carried away by their decent start to life under Brian Lohan’s management.

Two wins from two is the perfect start to their HL1B campaign, but Kelly is in no doubt that there will be a lot bigger tests down the road.

Speaking to the Clare Champion, he admitted that things were going well, but added that there was no way anyone was fooling themselves by thinking too far ahead.

“It is just a start and a positive one, having played two games and won two games. That being said, we are under no illusions and we know there is plenty to work on,” said Kelly.

“The wins were satisfying. The hurling the last day against Wexford might not have been great but conditions had a lot to do with that. We have three games left now in successive weeks, so we will start to get a better picture of where we are towards the end of the league if we can get to a quarterfinal or semi final.”

This Sunday sees Clare back in action following last weekend's break as they host Laois at Cusack Park, Ennis.

The Allianz Hurling League returns this weekend, make sure you join the match tracker for live scores from the third round of games.
