As Waterford exit the Championship in the group stages again, All-Ireland winners Paul Murphy and James Skehill joined Will O'Callaghan on The Hurling Pod to assess what's gone wrong for the Deise.

On this week's pod:

(0:00) - Skehill reveals he's spent 5 weeks preparing his draft. NFL fandom runs deep in hurling circles.
(5:54) - Waterford lose their 6th straight Munster SHC game and Lohan has knocked Davy out of the Championship again.
(11:16) - What was Waterford's warm-up huddle about? Is their system 'broken'? Puck-out strategy, players not in their best positions.
(24:01) - Waterford's issues run deeper than just the senior team, the players also need to take responsibility.
(39:38) - Clare's performance wasn't perfect but getting the two-points is what mattered. Tony Kelly's 13 points, Clare's aggressive tackling is working, tightening up at the back. This weekend's Munster games set up beautifully.
(46:42) - What kind of response can we expect from Limerick this weekend against Tipperary? Forde's absence a 'huge blow' for Tipp. Tweaks Cahill can make in defence.
(59:43) - How to deal with playacting in an attempt to get opponents booked or sent-off? More dangerous hit hits this week. Who would Murphy like to win the All-Ireland outside of Kilkenny? Is the sweeper now dying out?
