New Tipperary hurling manager Colm Bonnar reckons there is enough talent within his squad to match any team in the country.

Bonnar was appointed manager of his native county earlier this month, succeeding two-time All-Ireland winning boss Liam Sheedy.

Speaking to RTE Sunday Sport, Bonnar outlined his belief that Tipp aren’t facing into transition and that they can be in the mix when it comes to competing for silverware.

"If I can get 15 lads all on the same wavelength, I've no doubt that we're going to be a match for any team out there," he said.

"A bit of luck on any day and you could be Munster champions or you could be bottom of the five. There's a small bit of pessimism in Tipp. People think that there's going to be a transition, and some of the younger players are going to have to get involved.

"I don't see it that way. If I get the right mix there and get a bounce this could happen very quickly. That's what I believe and that's why I'm here.

"I want to get the best out of these lads, not next year, or the year after - I want to get it as quick as I can. I feel we've the ability in the dressing room to do that."
