Tipperary manager Liam Cahill feels the Munster Senior Hurling League campaign “has been of great benefit” to his team.

The Premier men reached the pre-season competition’s final against Cork last Sunday at Pairc Ui Rinn, where the Rebels came back from eight points behind to secure a 3-14 to 1-19 victory.

Tipp now turn their attentions towards the National League and an opening assignment against Laois in Thurles on Saturday week and, speaking to TippFM Sport, Cahill said plenty of positives can be taken from their first couple of outings in 2023.

“I probably am a fan because of the situation you’re in, when you come into a new role you need matches to get fellas up to the grove and get them into our way, my way and the lads and coaches ways of thinking,” he stated.

“To get opportunities like that and trying to build it in with the Fitzgibbon Cup and everything that’s coming at us is not easy so it’s nice to have these competitions to give you that chance.

“I think overall we’re very happy, obviously disappointed to lose the game and not see it out but over the course of the competition it has been of great benefit to us.”
