Replying To Barnowl94:  "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."
Especially now with a 'weakened' limerick side

It might be a "weakened" Limerick team but I don't see any weak links in their line-out. That goes to show what a strong panel they have - surely the best squad in the country.

Dowling for Hegarty despite how good he has been this year probably makes you stronger in the sense that dowling is your best free taker. Gillane has been better again this year but not near the free taker that dowling is. Hannon and Lynch tho are probably your two most influential players. I think tipp will regret not doing similar. We have a strong forward panel but we could have blooded a few in this game. Big mistake not to.

i think it was a huge mistake by sheedy not blooding some of the younger players on the panel ......he might think they are going well in training matches but nothing compares to the white heat of muster championship.

Replying To Rockies:  "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."
I am also expecting a big game from Clare on Sunday. But they could have "easily won the All Ireland" is absolutely ridiculous, make no mistake the best team of 2018 won the All Ireland and was'nt it Cork they beat in the semi final.

100% agree. A lot of miles on the clock of at least half the team. Our only chance reallyto blood a few players. All very well to say you want to stay winning but it's a mistake in my opinion. He has taken off the younger players too in the games we've won

Poor enough fare after half an hour, both sides going through the motions.

Has the feel of a league match so far, some good play at times but a lot of poor touches and loose play.

Hopefully it improves 2nd half.

Best wishes to Bonnar Maher. Hope he makes as quick a recovery as possible. Great wholehearted player.

No expert on the rules of hurling but was the Tipp goal not a throw ball

Limerick could lose 3 games and still win the all Ireland, game never got going and the final could be the same hopefully not.

No injuries for Limerick and rested key players. Into the final. Smart play. Will the final be in Limerick or PUC?

Disgraceful stuff by Limerick today, they have made an enemy out of Tipp and Clare and thrown Cork a lifeline at the same time.

The final shouldn't be the same. A Munster final in the Gaelic Grounds is a big deal.I dont think it will be a tame affair..i hope not. Limerick half backs without Hannon were rudderless. Some of the Tipp shooting was great and some wasnt. Limerick forwards were poor enough..Gillane and Morrissey were good. The ref was poor...laughing and joking with Paudie Maher...not very professional. Have him a few soft frees aswell.

Terrible lack of intensity. Suppose it was kind of a dead rubber. Would expect it to be very different in 2 weeks.

What's your point?
By resting our injured captain, some key players and running out of steam on our third match in a row limerick were working off some dark pro Cork, anti-Clare/Tipp agenda??
Seriously?
