ANY doubts about the firmness of Brian Cody's determination to restore Kilkenny to the top of hurling's pile were obliterated by his double half-time substitution of Tommy Walsh and Brian Hogan against Tipperary in Nowlan Park last Sunday.
Only a fool would doubt that both men will be central to the Cats' plans this year, but Cody's message was a clear shot across the bows of anyone thinking that old loyalties might complicate his mission.
They won't. They never have.
