Cork and Tipperary played out a belter at Pairc Ui Rinn on Sunday afternoon in the National Hurling League.

Tipp played out a high-scoring thriller against Kilkenny last weekend and looked on several occasions like repeating the trick on Leeside, especially after scoring a late goal to bring the sides level at 0-24 to 3-15 with only stoppage time remaining.

(Indeed, Horgan’s involvement from the start only came late on as he replaced Shane Kingston in the fifteen.)
