Reid: Work only starts now for Cats
06 Jul 2015 09:09
While not dismissing another Leinster title success, Kilkenny forward TJ Reid believes the "work only starts now" as the side look to retain their All-Ireland crown.
-
Reid was speaking in the aftermath of Kilkenny's victory over Galway in the provincial decider at Croke Park - a 70th provincial title for the Black and Amber.
-
"Winning Leinster is very serious for Kilkenny," he explained to RTÉ Sport
-
"We were looking forward to playing in Croke Park again. We're through now to an All-Ireland semi-final and that's where you want to be, but the work only starts now.
-
"We have five weeks now to the next game and we'll train like dogs for that. There are things to improve on but for today we got the job done."
-
The Ballyhale Shamrocks clubman chipped in with 1-09 of the Cats' 1-25 total against the Tribesmen, who scored 2-15, yet he was keen to emphasis the collective effort.
-
"The team effort, the work rate and the spirit is fantastic. I don't think we panicked after Galway got their goals. The other important thing was we didn't let Galway get a good start. We also have forwards who can score and we all did our bit."
-
Kilkenny's All-Ireland semi-final game is fixed for Sunday 9 August at Croke Park.
