All Ireland Hurling Final, Kilkenny v Tipperary, Sun Sep 4th, Croke Park, 3.30pm

The Cats v The Premier, who will win?

Michael Fennelly ruled out with a ruptured Achilles tendon, hasn’t been a vintage year for him but a huge loss nonetheless.

Big blow to Kilkenny. Hoping tipp can win it out.

Think Mick fennellys loss swings it towards Tipp. Either way I’ll be on the hunt for a ticket, expect another edge of the seat classic

tipp barely got over Galway, there was savage nerves here about that match from a long way out. Tipp go into the final with no real expectations, but that isnt the best Cat’s team in a while either. I’d say tickets will be easy to come by, last few times they met in finals they were on general sale in the GAA shop in Thulres on the Friday and Sat beforehand.

Both Galway and Tipp are teams that fade as the game gets tight, it was just a matter of who would falter first. Personally don’t believe Kilkenny would have conceded those 2 goals so late in the game. Kilkenny’s back line are equally as good at Galway’s, however I feel the Kilkenny forward line tops Galway by some way so on that basis I am leaning towards the cats for the final.

Going for the cats. I’d say they’re going to launch high ball on top of the Tipp backs. Galway profited from that tactic. They have a savage ferocity all over the park to win ball. Cody usually pulls a rabbit out of the bag and will probably do the same in replacing Fennelly.

He’s already pulled s few rabbits, and they’ve done well, but think tipp are a step above Waterford. Hope so anyways, so we get another great game.

Ah, his Achilles!! Was thinking it wasn’t his hammy when I saw it on the box. Poor fella, that’s a potential career ender if it’s fully ruptured! A true living legend of the game, and I’d have to side with Tipp now for the title.

anyways - easy to forget there’s the small matter of the hurling final on this weekend. hoping tipp can do it, nothing against kilkenny but just for someone else for a change. i know they’re still pretty bloody good but i can;t help thinking this kilkenny team arent quite as good as some of cody’s teams over the years. If tipp perform they’ll be there or thereabouts.

Hope to god the weather holds steady and were not in for hurricanes. This could be an epic greater then the trilogy

Hope it’s as good as the semis

Heard a injury rumour tonight which will not be good if true for tipp.
