The sequel is rarely as thrilling as the original, but tonight’s Leinster hurling final has blockbuster written all over it as the pupil tries to thwart his old master again.

Henry Shefflin versus Brian Cody II is fascinating and while the hullabaloo surrounding the frosty handshake after their first clash has died down, you can guarantee that neither will want to lose a battle of hurling icons.
