Cork v Tipperary


#642

Couldn’t agree more. Hurling as a non-contact sport.


#643

Think it will be a WD v Clare Munster Final myself. Cork are in for a shock with what WD will bring to that game. Lehane & Kingston will see plenty of timber.


#644

Impossible to predict Joe. I think it’s advantage Clare right now, as if they meet Cork an exhibition game will suit them just as much if not more than Cork. But Limerick and Waterford are both unknown beasts at this moment in time.


#645

He deserved yellow. Used his hand to make sure he tripped him when he was beaten all ends up. He was a bomb scare all day.


#646

I wouldn’t take that as a given. Cork physically steamrollered Wd in Walsh Park in the league.


#647

He hurls very like him. A bit faster but not as big. Classy hurler


#648

League = Meh.


#649

My point was that Cahalane didn’t see yellow.


#650

O’Keeffe wasn’t good enough 6 years ago. Bizarre that he got picked again.


#651

Mick Ryan whingeing again about lads playing club championship for two weekends when he scheduled training for the Saturday of one of those weekends. Fuck off Mick.


#652

Shefflin moved over on him early in 2011 and it was like a featherweight in with Mike Tyson. I just assumed it was tribal Tipp stuff with Declan Ryan picking a club mate for the hell of it


#653

You think Eoin was bigger or faster?

I would have thought Kingston is slower but “stronger” (unsure of height)


#654

Tbf both Donagh Maher and Michael Cahill would’ve been picked there if they were fit. Mouse O Dwyer probably should’ve been there alright but easy to say in hindsight


#655

Is the Tipp Championship not ridiculously convoluted and dragged out?


#656

I was trying to think who he reminded me of during a league game in the spring and that’s it…he has the gait and striking motion of Larkin.


#657

Larkin bigger I’d have thought. He’s about 6’2" I’d say.

Class act. His retirement finally finished off KK for a few years.


#658

Yes.


#659

Unbelievable player. One of the smartest players i ever saw. How many interceptions did he make? Not a regular “play” in hurling. He had it all and was the absokutely perdect team player.


#660

Cant blame him fighting his corner so


#661

Be fucking worse if Mick Church had his way.
Don’t think it’s that drawn out, each team has 3 group games winner of group goes to quarter finals, runner up to preliminary qf. Divisional championships then.
