Former Tipperary player and manager Ken Hogan believes some of the elder statesmen in Liam Sheedy’s current squad still have something to contribute.
Tipp exited the All-Ireland senior hurling championship race last Saturday after falling to defeat against Waterford at the quarter-final stage.
While some feel it’s the end of an era with this group, Hogan is confident that the likes of Paudie Maher and a few others still have something to contribute.
“I think there’s a lot of life left in this team – obviously there needs to be a little bit of surgery done, we all know that," Hogan told TippFM Sport.
“I think some of the elder statesmen still have something to contribute and I think it’s just how we can harness that.
“Paudie is one hell of a warrior – he was broken hearted after the game, you could see it in his eyes.
“You don’t write off guys because of their age – they’re only 31 or 32. I expect that one or two of the players to step away but do expect the core of the team to remain.”Tweet
