Waterford manager Liam Cahill is looking forward to facing All-Ireland champions Tipperary in Sunday’s HL1A clash.

Despite facing his native county, Cahill is eagerly awaiting the challenge that will face his charges this weekend.

The former Tipperary under-21 manager told the Waterford News & Star that he expects it to be an open game of hurling, while he hinted that he may make a few changes.

“We’re looking forward to it,” said Cahill. “It’s another great test. It will be a fine, open game of hurling I imagine.

“A great opportunity for us to test ourselves and to throw in a couple of guys and see how they react to the big open spaces of Semple Stadium.”

Cahill is adamant that there will be no divided loyalties lining out against many players that he has coached in the past.

“We’ll go left in the tunnel instead of right. That’s where I am now and that’s where I am really happy at the moment. I’m looking forward to what this group can do and we’ll just keep working hard and keep the sleeves rolled up.”
