Tipperary manager Liam Cahill says Saturday night’s Allianz Hurling League semi-final clash against Limerick is an opportunity to see where his team is at.
The Premier men are unbeaten heading into the knock-out stages this weekend, looking to hand the All-Ireland champions their second defeat of the campaign when the sides meet at the TUS Gaelic Grounds (throw-in 7.30pm).
Speaking to TippFM Sport, Cahill sees the game as “ideal preparation” ahead of the Munster championship’s start next month.
“Every game in Tipperary we approach it as if we are going to win it, we’re going to put our best foot forward," he said.
“I think it’s ideal preparation a couple of weeks out from the first round of the Munster championship.
“Obviously the Clare game in Ennis is a massive game for us and obviously Clare as well but I think the Limerick game coming now at this time is a right opportunity for us to really asses where we are at.
“Next Saturday night, no matter what way the result will go, we’ll have learned an awful lot from it.”Tweet
