Midlands 103 commentator Jack Nolan says he's been impressed by the new regime.
This weekend's Walsh Cup meeting of midlands rivals Offaly and Laois will serve as the perfect appetiser for their Joe McDonagh contest later in the year.
That's what Midlands 103 commentator Jack Nolan is saying ahead of Sunday's game in O'Connor Park.
Both counties are under new management with Willie Maher over the Laois hurlers and Johnny Kelly in charge in Offaly.
Nolan says despite Laois being a division above Offaly, he wouldn't make them a clear favourite.
Speaking to David Hollywood he says it looks like Willie Maher has had a positive impact:
Throw-in at O'Connor Park is set for 2 o'clock on Sunday.
