I'd lost complete faith with this crop after the performance against Cork where the towel was thrown in well before the final whistle. So in fairness to the players and management they look to have recovered from that drubbing. Despite a second half collapse, Galway never looked like winning even when they got it down to 3 points. The Keohoe sending off certainly stopped Tipp's momentum. Wasn't it a disgraceful sending off? It was barely a yellow. Perhaps the Galway kid got a knock but I felt he milked it. The Tipp goalkeeper was shaky and was partly to blame for the goal. The backs were solid however Brian McGrath needs serious coaching for the FB position. Midfield was excellent throughout and Browne needs to start at midfield for Tipp seniors. Keohoe was superb, Feehan was ok and Morris did fine but we lack a classy corner forward. I thought Cahill was trying to lose this game for Tipp with the amount of substitutions he made. Is he the new senior manager? I don't know. Cork are clearly the better outfit but as long as they don't throw in the towel again it could be a good game. But I can't see them winning. Cork by 5pts.
