Galway under-21 manager Tony Ward is adamant that his charges will not be taking Tipperary for granted in Wednesday's All-Ireland semi-final.

The sides meet at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick next week for a place in the All-Ireland final against either Cork or Wexford.

Cork trounced Tipperary in the Munster final, but Ward is in no doubt that the Premier County are better than their performance suggested in the provincial decider.

"We have seen both games and they are a serious side," Ward told the Connacht Tribune. "They have guys who were on the senior panel as well and you know the experience that brings to any U21 squad.

"I would say the Limerick game is more of the Tipperary team rather than the game against Cork. I don't know what happened them there. They seemed to hit the self-destruct button that evening. I wouldn't be reading much into the Cork game. I would kind of be reading into how they can play, like they played against Limerick."
