Fitzgerald undecided on future

Davy Fitzgerald is to discuss his future as Waterford hurling manager with county board officials in the wake of the All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Tipperary.

His two-year term as manager is now officially up, and he has admitted that travelling from his home in Clare to Waterford for training and matches is a massive commitment.

"We've had a great three years and won a lot of championship games. We'll sit down and talk. It's a massive commitment and there's a lot of driving. You're leaving home everyday at 2 and you don't get home until 12. But I like it that way," he said.

"I've worked with a great bunch of lads. There is a great team spirit there and there are serious leaders. Some probably won't be happy that they didn't see enough of game time. I have a job to do, to pick the best Waterford team I could and trust me, you'll have lads who are disappointed but I wanted to win as much as any of them."
