The waiting is almost over as a new era is about to commence when the Tipperary Senior Hurlers take to the field on Saturday night next, February 13th in their opening Allianz Hurling League Division 1A clash with Dublin in Semple Stadium at 7pm.
The challenge games are out of the way as manager Michael Ryan, his management team and his dedicated squad set about their task ahead in the Allianz National League. Patience will be required on all fronts to allow the team time to bed in and find their way in the league where results will be hard earned in a competitive division.
Dublin were first up last year as well and after a bright positive start Tipp faded and succumbed to a home town defeat. Previous history has shown there have been 32 previous league meetings between the sides with Tipp on top winning 19, Dublin on 9 and 4 draws. The first league match between the counties was played at Croke Park on 22/11/1925 (1925/26 competition, first time the League was played) with Dublin coming out on top 7-6 to Tipp’s 3-1.
So its best wishes to the lads on Saturday and again we urge all supporters to get behind the team in great numbers this weekend and over the course of the league.
