I must confess that I've warmed to the idea of having the club hurling championships completed in a short block of time after watching ten matches over the opening two rounds.

There's something really compelling about seeing the competitions steadily gaining momentum in this manner, rather than jumping from one code to the other on every second week.

Now, it must be stressed that this only works because of the shortened three-round groups. In fairness to the football clubs, it wouldn't be right for the entire hurling programme to be finished in its entirety first if the normal two sixes were in place.
