Both Michael Ryan and Micheal Donoghue have made changes ahead of Sunday’s clash. There are two changes to the Tipperary side while Galway make just one alteration. After heavy criticism was directed towards Tipperary’s defence following their victory over Clare, it’s not surprising that both changes come in this sector of the field.

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 …

Brave Westmeath Run All-Ireland Champions Tipperary Extremely Close

All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Qualifier Round 1, Semple Stadium, Thurles, Co. Tipperary 1/7/2017 Tipperary vs Westmeath Westmeath’s Shane Power is tackled by Tipperary’s Dan McCormack

So far, the 2017 hurling championship has seen it’s fair share of upsets. Westmeath were very close to blowing these upsets well and truly out of the water before the reigning All-Ireland champions eventually won by 2-18 to 0-15. When the draw was made last Monday morning, no tie seemed a more foregone conclusion than this. All-Ireland champions Tipperary were …
