Kilkenny hurling legend Jackie Tyrrell has identified Tipperary’s defence as their biggest weakness.  The 35-year-old won nine All-Irelands and claimed four All-Star awards during his inter-county career and is universally recognised as one of the toughest defenders of all time so it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about defending. Writing in The Irish Times, Tyrrell claims that Tipperary’s …

After a shock defeat in their championship opener, Tipperary have regrouped and are still standing. With this in mind, we have to ask, does the back-door route suit this Tipperary side?  The obvious statistic here is that Tipperary’s two most recent All-Ireland titles have come via both routes. They overcame Kilkenny via the back-door in 2010 and took the direct …

While it will be difficult, there are reasons to suggest that maybe 2017 will be the year Waterford win a first All-Ireland title since 1959.
