It is worth noting that the team has a number of players who are ready to leave the team, and it is not clear what will happen to them. The most obvious candidates are:
· Brian Cody;
·0. Seán McGrath;
All these players are in the last year of their contracts. The last time the club did not have such a situation was in the previous season.
However, it is worth recalling that the club was able not to lose a single point in the entire season. It is possible that the situation will change now, and Kilk will be able to get a good result.
