THERE WERE BIZARRE scenes at Nowlan Park on Saturday afternoon during Kilkenny’s Leinster Senior Hurling Championship curtain-raiser against Dublin, as selector Greg Kennedy caught a TJ Reid free while on the pitch.

Kennedy, a former Galway hurler who was sent off in the 2001 All-Ireland semi-final against Kilkenny, successfully intercepted Reid’s quickly-taken free aimed at Colin Fennelly, who was unmarked close to goal.

The Loughrea clubman exited the pitch a few moments later after catching the ball as the free was re-taken shortly afterwards.

However Kennedy drew the ire of Kilkenny boss Brian Cody along the touchline for his interception of Reid’s free, with the pair remonstrating for a few moments outside their technical areas.
