By the end of this absorbing Leinster hurling semi-final there were bodies from both sides strewn across the pitch everywhere, exhaustion and cramp really kicking in as the clock ticked over 100 minutes.

Ultimately it was Kilkenny who had survived it better, however, hitting an unanswered 1-6 in the second period of extra-time to keep a firm hold of the Bob O’Keeffe Cup for at least another two weeks.
