Richie Hogan was the star of the show for Kilkenny in their close win over Cork 0-14 to 1-10 in their Allianz Hurling League Division 1 clash on Sunday last in Nowlan Park. Kilkenny were more dominant in the first half after which they led by eight points. While Cork came storming back into the game in the second half and looked like they might secure the spoils this was dashed by Richie Hogan’s late point.
Kilkenny's drive for five is still very much alive after their empathic victory over Cork in the All-Ireland semi-final last Sunday. The victory was great but the sight of Brian Hogan and Henry Shefflin leaving the action injured dampened the celebrations.

Talking to Galway’s hurling manager John McIntyre during the week about this Sunday’s national hurling league final against Cork was a breath of fresh air. No clichés. No boring “we’ll do our best”. Or the other classic: “It’s only the league, and if we win, we win. And if we don’t, it’s the championship that counts.”
Two injury-time points helped Cork to an Allianz National Hurling League 0-18 to 1-13 victory in Páirc Úi Chaoimh last weekend. The teams were level at 0-8 apiece at the break in a very intense and heated contest where the Cats had Michael Grace dismissed leaving them a man down.
