Senior Hurling 2012

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

Realtmo, I know it's it's a long shot for Galway or Dublin to bet kk but in a knock out match in one 70 mins I think they have it in them to produce a shock because of the way they are tryin to play! I think they have taken notice of how tipp did it in 09 & 10 to match kk. Don't think any other counties are tryin to do that!

Totally agree with you about the change in attitude needed. But surely the first 55mins against limerick is more worrying than the last 15 was promising?? Tipp really need to get back to the sheedy basics but with the rumoured unrest in the camp I question whether they can! Sheedy built his team on the base that every single player n mgt were in it 100% together and they were going to hurl harder and faster than anyone! Unfortunate there is some tension in the camp and the hurlin is very soft! Both need to change quick time!I

semple I think myself the real test will be down in Cork and we will have a clearer picture of what Tipp are on display for the year. As for unrest I am hearing from a good source that it is all behind them and it is has been a very happy camp the last four weeks, I tend to believe this from the way they came back and won last week, as for the first 55 mins you could look at it as been worrying or that we are just tipping along till the real hurling starts as I said we will know for certain after Cork. I just think Tipp do not want to make the same mistake as last year peaking for a Munster final, hopefully are teething problems are behind us and now that the management are fully settled in we may just be in for a good year.

Ya hopefully they all pullin together now.

I know cork is a hard place to go any time but I don't rate this cork team at all. New keeper, new fullback, Sean og is slowin, Gardner not a midfielder, they will have 2 or 3 green forwards n I don't rate Paudie o Sullivan at inter county level! If we beat cork I don't think it will tell us much but if we loose it will show we are gone backwards!

semple Its Cork, we don't beat them in Cork often. Very disappointed in the performance against Limerick. We only got going when the subs came on but at least we got going. We have as much to prove Cork.

Oh ya I know how rare wins in cork are but I wouldn't read much into it, IF we do win, compared to d last time we won there under sheedy! This cork team is very new and unproven. Any team hoping to beat kk this year would be expected to beat this cork team.

What does everyone think of todays game?
Only saw the 2nd half but Tipp were worthy winners, Cork pushed them hard and cant be to displeased with their showing. Its a very young Cork outfit who are still a bit lightweight but JBM is doing the right thing in bringing the young fellows through.
Cant see Waterford beating Tipp but I dont think Tipp are good enough to hand out the kind of hiding that they gave them in their last Munster Final meeting

I was very impressed with Tipp today. It was a first for Tipp without Lar and Kelly for me, even though Larry played great when he came on. They showed great character with only 14 men. Pa Bourke was very good again. I was a bit disappointed with B Maher. What is the story with Seamus Hennessey? The Bonner and Noel McGrath were outstanding. I think Tipp will win Munster and get to the All-Ireland final. I hope they have a good plan for the Cats. I think they will be too good for Waterford. I was surprised by Cork, they have improved a lot.

It was a good win but I am very worried about our backs, which is unusual because this is normally our forte. Our full back line especially, I thought we got beaten too many times back there and we were very lucky not to have conceded a goal or two. Our half back line played ok, they will need to improve. Midfield was good because of McGrath he played well, Brendan done alright but he is nowhere near his 2010 form. Half forward line played well with big performances for Bonnar and Pa Bourke. Lar done ok after coming on but he still has alot to work on before he really gets back to his best. Our inside played well and fairly troubled the Cork backs. Noel was very good, but we needed him to have that. Buggy is strong and is well able to run at defences, a big addition to him is he is very good in the air, something Tipp haven't exploited with him yet. Shane Bourkes tenacity is great to see and he is very fast. He has played well coming off the bench but he has never been great when started. Happy with our forwards but our backs have alot of work to do.

Great win for us today, would not worry about anything, its all about timing. We could of won by 7 or 8 points only for the sending off, we are where we want to be and with no hype about us its great nobody giving us a chance for the all Ireland.

Good win yesterday but still loads to do. I think the win boils down to Bonnar maher. The attitude he has is actually unbelievable. His work rate alone would frighten most defenders! Anyone know, out of the 23 scores how many did he create?
Although we didn't give up any goals I thought the full back line struggled big time. Not sure if O'Brien is the answer corner back, curran was in trouble all day while Cahill isn't at his best.
Great to see Lar back but I thought he was well off d pace, which is understandable, but he has a lot of work to do! In 40 mins yesterday i can only remember him gettin on d ball twice. Any other forward would be slated for that.

I think we can really win the all Ireland this year, we are just doing enough we have loads in the tank. most of this team did not hurl in the league and have only about two months hurling done, we will peak at the right time this year with a lot of players just going to be coming back to there best. It is gas the way so many people are writing us off and cant see its all about timing for this team.

Congrats on yer win on Sunday lads. It was an epic contest with a serious amount of scores. It really is a great rivalry between our 2 counties. I thought we should have got a draw and taken ye back to Thurlas but thats the way it goes. Hopefully ye will go on to beat that showboating shower from Waterford in a few weeks.

Whatever. In most cases i have been posting the info as i see it on the newspages. You may be posting for friends around the world but its easier for people to see info if the info is spread between different threads. If people want to read about the tipp senior hurlers they go into the tipp senior hurlers thread, if they want to read about the minor hurlers they can go into the tipp minor hurlers thread.
It is much easier for everyone to find the information they want if each county team has a different thread and the club championships have different threads

Have to say this must be the worst build up to a Munster final I have ever seen. Why do people think the build up to it is so low key, it is a Munster final after all.
