Kilkenny suffered a second successive defeat in the Allianz League when a rejuvenated Clare side were full value for their thirteen point winning margin over a disappointing Kilkenny side. The defeat puts Kilkenny pointless on their own on the bottom of the table and the only consolation being that all the other teams, other than Tipperary, have all lost one game. Next up for Kilkenny will be Cork in Nowlan Park on Sunday 5th March. Cork, having had an impressive opening night win over Clare, suffered a bad defeat against Dublin at the weekend.
