Hurling royalty to showcase the sport in Sydney on Sunday
Hurling royalty will hit Sydney on Sunday.
Irish giants Kilkenny and Galway will square off at Spotless Stadium as part of the Sydney Irish Festival, with the inaugural Wild Geese Trophy on the line.
It’s the first time hurling will be played at the elite level outside Ireland.
Festival promoter Paul Sergeant told Macquarie Sports Radio this will be a serious match.
“They are the Liverpool and Manchester United of the hurling world,” he said.
“It’s going to be a fantastic watch.”
Gates open at the Showgrounds at 11.15am, with the match starting at 3.30pm.
