Liverpool owner John Henry has hailed the recent Fenway Park Classic between Dublin and Galway as a "tremendous experience" and says that he hopes to see the game of hurling back in Boston again.

Galway beat the Dubs in an 11-a-side match with hybrid rules at the home of the Boston Red Sox in a clash that was marred by a mass brawl early in the game.

But Liverpool owner Henry says the experiment was a massive success.

"Extremely proud. This is the first time we had hurling at Fenway Park. Two great teams and the fans are really big into it. It's been a terrific experience for us.

"It's the first time I have seen it (hurling) to be honest and it's wild, wild. It's been a tremendous experience and hopefully we will be able to do it again.

"We had 27,000 who paid in which really exceeded our expectations because very few people in America have heard of hurling but in this area people are aware of it which is evidenced by the attendance."
