Its game number three for the Tipperary hurling panel as they cross the halfway stage of the league when they line out to meet Waterford next Sunday, March 6th in Semple Stadium at 2.30pm in the Allianz Hurling League.
The last meeting between the sides in the league was the semi-final in Nowlan Park last April which gave Waterford a narrow one point win and a boost in the head to head contest. Of the 43 matches played in the league Tipperary are well ahead with 32 wins, Waterford have 8 and there have been 3 draws.
The first meeting was at Kilsheelan on 24/2/1929 with Tipperary winning 4-4 to 2-3.
Sunday’s outing is another tough test as Michael Ryan’s developing squad set out for their second home win in the league. Having last played Waterford in their great Munster Championship Final success last year it has all the hallmarks of a fascinating contest on Sunday.
Best wishes to Brendan, Mick and all the team and we look forward to tremendous Tipp support on Sunday.
