Tipp and KK are both hungry this year so it should be a cracking championship

Early days for both, but Kilkenny have injected some serious pace in their forwards, Cork backs were awful though.

A dryer sod may still cause Tipp problems and Clare messed up by allowing Paudie Maher to be the free man and really needed to go toe to toe with Tipp. Giving Tipp that sort of platform to rain ball down in on Seamus Callanan and Jake Morris was never going to end well and when Kelly saw red Tipp were always going to drive on.

By the looks of the Limerick lads they've beefed up a bit and not in a good way, buy maybe someone ordered too small a set of jerseys for them on Sunday.
The AIF session must have gone on til Xmas.

I thought they hurled rightly on Sunday and maybe they'll push on a bit, those sorts of games in the past Limerick lost, so the confidence of winning last year has stood by them, was impressed with Kilkenny and Galway are missing a few players from two teams still left in the club competitions
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Bit of a surprise with the Dubs beating Tipp who are not as lethal as in seasons past

Hard to know as Sheedy is open about the fact that he felt Tipp weren't as well physically conditioned as some other teams and he's probably set about correcting that.
If they were put through a few tough training sessions in the week then it's no wonder they were flat.

it's all about May now.

they made a huge improvement between April and the AIF in 2017 so maybe it's nothing
