Tipp V Limerick. Heavyweight Clash

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


I'm biased here but just gauging neutrals view of this game next week. I think it's in line to be unreal! Tipp look unstoppable but finally my own county showing their capabilities. I think this could be a ruthless, rip roaring AFFAIR. Hopefully Tipp and limerick go FOR it. Maybe tipp might wait until the munster final before showing their hand but it should be class.

A heavyweight class alright. Can we expect 30k at this one as well?

If limerick beat Tipp by 4 or more they finish top I think assuming cork lose.

But for cork to make the final they'll need to beat Clare by a big score and hope limerick beat Tipp by a decent margin too. So Tipp are almost guaranteed a final spot.

If limerick lose and Tipp win it's a cork Tipp final. If Clare beat cork and Limerick beat or draw with Tipp, it's a Tipp Limerick final with Clare in third.

So it will either beat Tipp vs Limerick in Pairc ui chaoimh or cork v Tipp in limericks gaelic grounds.

Given that both teams are in knock out stages at least only a Munster final place up for grabs.
They could meet in Munster final again and maybe AI Final who knows.
Hard to know what Tipp will show up still think Limerick 5-7 and 10-15 strongest in country by a mile and mind you Tipp backline has not been tested since first 35 minutes against Cork apart from giving away lots of free when you run at them.
I'd expect Brendan Maher to pick up Hegarty and P Maher not sweep as Kyle Hayes will take some marking.
Barrett / Ronan Maher on Casey or Mulcahy will be savage battles.
Looking forward to a good game hopefully nice test for Tipp see where we stand against the best team in the country.

Jeez I didn't realize how bad Waterford have had in it Munster finals against Tipp! What do you mean "2019 will be Cork/Limerick/Clare"? Clare can't make final and are you ruling out Tipp?

I agree I'm really looking forward to this the only negative is both teams are already tru so it might take a bit of bite out of it hopefully not.

Best game v Tipp in my years watching Limerick v Tipp

2007 Limerick 0-22 Tipperary 2-13 (last game of the trilogy and people on the pitch as we won the game)

Worst ever

1991 Tipperary 2-18 Limerick 0-10

Outclassed all over the pitch and at the end John Leahy curled a ball over the bar that saw straw hats, small animals and ham sambos head for the skies .........

Your Permutations are all over the shop, Firstly if Limerick beat Tipp they will top the group, If Limerick lose to Tipp
and Clare beat Cork then Limerick will be in second place most likely because of their high scoring difference,
If Limerick and Clare both Win Cork are Gone, and that would be delightful personally speaking. and if Tipp and Cork Win
its a Tipp and Cork Munster final with Limerick coming Third.

Also isnt the final almost certainly in PnG if Limerick are in it?

I've a feeling that a lot of Tipp's players have actually lost weight this year, which might be a contributory factor in their storming of Munster so far. Certainly if they're 'heavyweights' this year, they were doubtless in the 'superheavy' class last season!

It's a nothing game for Tipp. I don't see any point in them bursting a gut to win this one. Munster final, if it's Tipp v Limerick should be good alright. Tipp may as well keep their powder dry for that imo.

Tipperary have something to play for,they can still come third, Tipperary need to draw or win to make sure,if cork put up a big score and Limerick win with a nice score, Tipperary go third.

Cork might win in Ennis, but they won't win big imo. Likewise, Limerick won't win big either. There is pretty much no chance that Cork will have a superior pts diff to Tipp on Sunday night. Cork are TWENTY FIVE points behind Tipp. I'll eat my hat, if they close that gap fully on Sunday. You'd be needing 12+ point wins for Cork & Limerick. No chance of that happening surely?

You never know,that's why Tipperary still need a result to make sure.

I am expecting a big game from Clare on Sunday in Ennis.They are hurting and will be anxious to turnover Cork. Clare were unlucky against Galway in semi final last year, and could easily have won All Ireland.
Cork need to be at their best.
Not sure how Tipp will approach Limerick game.

So Waterford played in 50% of the last 10 Munster finals. And made this years league final.

Quite a record given the way rhey have been written off recently.

Then again they lost all those Munster finals.

And they always lose to Tipp in the final. It's very similar to Meath losing to Dublin in 4 Leinster finals since 2012. Tipp must love playing them.

I disagree .Tipp will not want to give Limerick the morale booster of a win over the form team in the country in Thurles .
Sheedy will go for the win all out is my prediction.
Should be good.

Limerick to me have potentially the best full back line of the modern era and top class goalie too, along with the best hurler in the country for the last 15 months in Hannon at centre back. Tipp's full forward line is capable of doing damage against any team but their half forward line has to at least break even for that to happen. For me, in order for Tipp to win that needs to happen and they need to hold Gillane which I don't think we will do.
Limericks to lose.
Surely a big game in Clare too. Wouldnt be one bit surprised to see them beat Cork and go through should Limerick win.

Jack, you have a lot of permutations wrong below

If limerick beat Tipp by 4 or more they finish top I think assuming cork lose. IF LIMERICK BEAT TIPP BY ANY SCORE & CORK LOSE, LIMK TOP GROUP ON A HEAD TO HEAD WITH TIPP

But for cork to make the final they'll need to beat Clare by a big score and hope limerick beat Tipp by a decent margin too. So Tipp are almost guaranteed a final spot. EASIEST WAY FOR CORK TO MAKE FINAL IS LIMK LOSE AND CORK WIN.

If limerick lose and Tipp win it's a cork Tipp final. If Clare beat cork and Limerick beat or draw with Tipp, it's a Tipp Limerick final with Clare in third.

So it will either beat Tipp vs Limerick in Pairc ui THIS WOULD BE IN LIMERICK. chaoimh or cork v Tipp in limericks gaelic grounds.
