Spillane backs Kerry to shine

Kerry great Tom Spillane is tipping the Kingdom side to summon up the spirit of the 1980s team.

Even though they are tipped to get past Tipperary in Semple Stadium tomorrow, Kerry's powers are expected to wane after last season's highs.

And just as it was in 1983, when Cork won the Munster title, the Rebels are the most likely pretenders to their All-Ireland crown. Kerry great Tom Spillane can see similarities.

“We'll see how they react in the next few years,” he said. “There's no doubt they have lost some big players but we came back and won three in a row and I suppose not many expected that at the time, but Kerry always seem to have a few good footballers coming off the conveyor-belt.”
