Former inter-county hurler Ken McGrath has said “something drastically needs to happen” after Waterford Senior Hurlers lost 2-22 to 0-16 against Clare in Saturday’s Round Robin in Thurles.
Speaking with Damien Tiernan on Monday's "Deise Today", McGrath said that as a county, our hurling is in a “very bad place”, and that “we’re at Joe McDonagh standard” of play.
“You have to face it and say this is not working,” McGrath said after a weekend which saw both Waterford Senior Hurlers and Footballers face defeat in both Round Robin and the Tailteann Cup.
McGrath said after a third defeat in as many matches, “the players must be feeling fragile at this stage.”
Turning to social media over the weekend, Ken McGrath criticised Waterford’s Senior Hurling management, calling it ‘absolutely shocking."
Asked on-air about the current management system behind Waterford Senior Hurling, McGrath replied, “If that was a Waterford man standing on the line, would he last a year?”.
