Eight-time All-Ireland winner Eoin Larkin has called for young Kilkenny stars to improve their attitude after a 13-point defeat to Clare in Ennis yesterday.

Larkin, who was one of a number of Kilkenny players to end their inter-county careers after last year's All-Ireland final disappointment, was far from impressed as the Cats slumped to their second successive league defeat on a scoreline of 2-19 to 0-12.

He tweeted: "Not good enough from Kk.still reliant on experienced lads. Younger lads need to have the attitude NEVER give up.too many standing around."

The defeat followed a rare loss to Waterford at Nowlan Park a week earlier that leaves Kilkenny rooted to the bottom of the Division 1A table but Brian Cody was remaining positive.

"We didn't play well in the first half, but we didn't play well in the second half either," he said.

"You are always concerned if you're not playing well.

"We're just going to keep going and move on."
