Seamus Callanan says Tipperary will aim to add the national hurling league crown to the All-Ireland they captured last summer.

It’s been twelve years since the Premier County captured their record-breaking 19th league title and the reigning Hurler of the Year, who captained Tipp to their latest Liam MacCarthy Cup victory, is the sole survivor from that 2008 success:

“Obviously it’s a very long time since we picked up a league medal. There’ll be different aspects to the Allianz league now as well,” he told The Irish Daily Mirror.

“You’ll be obviously trying to blood new players and lads trying to get their match fitness up. But it would be great to win a bit of silverware at the end of it too.

“It would get you off to a good start to the year, build momentum going into the summer. The Allianz League will be very important in our preparations.”
