Former Waterford attacker Dan Shanahan says he was “very disappointed” with Tipperary display at Walsh Park at the weekend.
The Deise men scored a 2-29 to 3-21 victory over Liam Sheedy’s side, and could be possibly meeting Tipp again in the Munster championship in three weeks should they overcome Clare on June 27th.
Speaking to TippFM after Waterford’s win on Sunday, Shanahan was impressed by the impact Liam Cahill’s substitutes had throughout the game.
“The Waterford subs that came on outshone the Tipperary subs,” said the Lismore man. “I know it’s three weeks down the line but it was very important that Waterford got a performance today and they got that performance.
“I was very disappointed with Tipp. I feel sorry for Padraic Maher – he was left isolated one-on-one and Cathal Barrett two-on-two inside with that space. You can’t defend space and Waterford exploited that.
“Waterford went for goals and they could have got another three or four goals in the second-half, so it’s a worry but the excuse is I suppose that the Tipperary bench are waiting for three weeks’ time.”Tweet
