Bonner can win ball but when he gets wiped out, he gets wiped out completely. In the replay in 2014 he was absolutely abysmal.

Assuming Noel McGrath is fully fit, that'll be like Tipp getting a brand new superstar again. He might not win ball all the time, but he pulls in more than his fair share.

Can't agree with you about Noel. He's a lovely hurler, but he's not physical enough to win ball against the like of a Kilkenny half back line. He can mop up a break alright, and his first touch is good enough to get the sliotar up out of a tight spot, but he just doesn't win enough ball over his head. He might be an option for midfield if he's going well though.

same in the 2015 semi
I think 3 of the starting forwards were taken off
