THE WEXFORD native was very happy after the game and was quick to say how impressed he has been with the Carlow lads so far in his tenure.
"I'm delighted with the lads, but to be honest I've been delighted with them for the last few months, in terms of their application and their attitude and it's all about putting all the little pieces together and making it work, there was good creation from them today, and I was delighted with them," reiterated the Carlow manager.
"We've worked on the skill level, first touch must be perfect and with a big test against Galway next weekend it's great preparation for the national league and that's the way we want it, and the more games we can get against the likes of Galway the better for us, there will be dropped balls and little things, but that's what we have to improve on and learn from but our application is fantastic and that's what I demand".
Meyler says he can't fault the Carlow hurlers for commitment and support and reckons they're just as good as any county for representing their county proudly.
"I can't fault them, there's no absenteeism in training, we had four U-21's in the forward line and they all scored, and all our forwards scored, and then we have the likes of Shane Kavanagh and Ed Coady and Andrew Gaule are vital and the young lads will have to learn from them," finished the Cork based manager.
