KILKENNY MAY BE playing for a home decider when they line out in their National Hurling League semi-final this Sunday.

County chiefs have hinted that the showpiece may be hosted at Nowlan Park should both the Cats and Tipperary progress.

In the other semi, the Premier face Jimmy Barry Murphy’s Cork.

“There is an arrangement between the [Kilkenny and Tipperary],”  county board secretary, Ned Quinn told the Kilkenny People, “that when they next meet in the final the match will be in Kilkenny.”

The decider is slated for 6 May. Kilkenny are expected to be too strong for Davy Fitzgerald’s Banner outfit but the second semi-final on a mouth-watering Semple Stadium card sees Tipp as slight favourites with the bookmakers to see off the Rebels.
