Tipperary GAA Scene – March 16th 2023

Allianz Hurling League

Our senior hurlers welcomed Waterford to FBD Semple Stadium last Saturday evening in round 4 of the Allianz hurling league. Knowing that a win would secure our place in the semi finals, the players and management were anxious to continue their winning run against what many felt would be their toughest test to date. After a somewhat slow start, Tipperary settled in to the game and gained control leading at the break by 1-12 to 0-11. Waterford came out strong at the beginning of the second half and had taken the lead by the 12th minute. Tipperary then found another gear and by the 22nd minute found themselves ahead by 3-16 to 0-19. By the 32nd minute man of the match Jake Morris had found the net for the third time and we went on to win by 4-23 to 0-25.

Tipperary’s last game of the group stages will be away to Antrim next Sunday and with progression to the knockout stages now certain, this game may give the team management to afford more playing time to some of the panel members who may not have featured in the starting lineouts to date. This game will see Tipperary return to Corrigan Park for the first time since October 1945. That was the first meeting of the counties in the National Hurling League and Tipperary won by 5.6 to 2.2.

There have been 17 meetings to date and Tipperary have won them all. The results of the last six meetings were –

1994, FBD Semple Stadium Tipp 2.14 Antrim 1.7

2004, FBD Semple Stadium, Tipp 5.23 Antrim 0.13

2005, Casement Park, Tipp 6.21 Antrim 0.10
