Cork Name Team To Face Tipperary In The Munster Hurling Championship

cork gaa hurling

Cork manager Kieran Kingston has named an interesting team to face Tipperary on Sunday in the first round of the Munster Senior Hurling Championship. The Rebels narrowly avoided relegation in the National Hurling League, beating Galway in the play-off.

However, the task of beating the Premier in the home of hurling is a daunting one, and recent history is not in Cork’s favour.

Should the Rebels have a chance of causing an upset, they will need to counteract the threat of the Tipp forward line. With the backs struggling at times throughout the League, Kingston knows that the back-line he has sent out will need to do a job.

Kingston raised a few eyebrows throughout the League with some surprising team selections, and this has been no different.

1.  Anthony Nash
2. Damian Cahalane
3. Mark Ellis
4. Conor O’Sullivan
