Ballygunner defender Shane O’Sullivan says the Waterford champions are bracing themselves for a stern test with Tipperary counterparts Borris-Ileigh this weekend.

The Gunners are bidding for back-to-back Munster club senior hurling championship titles at Pairc Ui Rinn on Sunday and O’Sullivan expects a serious battle against the 3/1 underdogs from the Premier County.  

"They've nearly an All-Ireland senior inter-county winner in every line," he told RTE Sport.

"You've Paddy Stapleton, Brendan Maher, Dan McCormack, Conor Kenny, then you have young (James) Devaney in the full-forward line who's the grandson of one of the greatest players to ever play the game. 

"So we're under no illusions that they're not an unknown to us. And anyone in Tipp who has watched them, I'm sure they're not an unknown. 

"And to beat Glen Rovers so convincingly, one of the power-houses of Munster hurling for generations, they're definitely not unknown from my point of view."
