Tipperary - All Tipp

Lar Corbett joins kids' cricket match in Bangladesh - but plays with his hurl

YOU CAN TAKE the man out of Tipperary but you can't take the Tipperary out of the man.
Premier legend Lar Corbett is out in Bangladesh this week, a country which isn't exactly a hurling stronghold.
Never one to say no to a puck around, Lar found himself roped into a game of cricket with some children.
And true to form, the Sarsfields man had his hurl ready to show the locals how things are done back home.

Tipperary and Limerick bosses slam football's 'B' plan. Limerick 1-12 Tipperary 2-9:

Stalemate in Kilmallock yesterday and agreement from Liam Kearns and John Brudair removing Division 4 teams from the AI SFC qualifiers in 2017 would be a retrograde step.
Two counties who could end up scrapping for Division 3 survival locked horns yesterday knowing that every point in a competitive division could prove crucial if the controversial GAA proposal is voted in at Annual Congress.
Limerick and Tipp need to remain in the third tier this year to avoid dropping into the Division 4 backwaters - and potentially the prospect of a B championship.
Kearns, the new Tipp supremo who enjoyed a successful spell with Limerick, insisted: "I don't agree with a B championship and I don't think there will be a B championship. I don't think there should be a B championship with only Division 4 teams playing each other. To dilute it to a B championship for Division 4 teams is wrong." Limerick manager John Brudair was in full agreement, stating: "It's not nice, I'm sure there are better ways.
"It's kind of saying, 'we'll work away with 24 teams and leave the other eight work away.' We know the rules there and we have to make sure we're not in that position come the end of the year."
On the balance of play yesterday, both men will have been happy with an opening day point. Tipp should have been further ahead than four points at half-time, 1-6 to 0-5, but needed a late goal from Josh Keane to haul them back into contention.
Former minor star Keane, excellent and hard working throughout, netted in the 68th minute to complete a flowing move.
Conor Sweeney's free handed Tipp the lead but there was still time for Limerick talisman Ian Ryan to kick his ninth score of the game, and his eighth free, to level matters in stoppage time.
Honours even and Kearns wasn't quite sure if it was a point gained or lost.
"Hard to call, isn't it? Going by the first half, it was a point lost but with seven or eight minutes to go, a point gained. We went in four points up but it should have been eight or nine. The wind got stronger, they started to run at us and put us under a fair bit of pressure and got some good points going down the stretch."
Four of Limerick's first-half points were Ryan frees, the other a Stephen Cahill effort from play before he was black-carded. Peter Acheson struck for Tipp's goal and it was no more than the Premier County deserved as their gameplan worked a treat, defending in numbers and breaking quickly. But the game turned Limerick's way in the second half and sub Peter Nash handed them the lead for the first time with eight minutes remaining.
Gearoid Hegarty took advantage of an error from the otherwise excellent Colm O'Shaughnessy to fist an effort that, if it had dropped into the net, would not have counted. But as the ball bounced back into play, Nash pounced from close range. Conor Sweeney's free kept Tipp right in there but points from Ryan and Seanie Buckley had Limerick 1-11 to 1-8 clear with just minutes left.
Keane took a pass from Jimmy Feehan to slot home an equalising goal before the teams traded late points.

Limerick: I Ryan 0-9 (8f), P Nash 1-0, S Buckley 0-2, S Cahill 0-1.

Tipp: P Acheson 1-1, C Sweeney 0-4 (2f), J Keane 1-0, P Austin (1f) & A Maloney 0-2 each.

Senior Hurling Challenge - Tipperary 1-31 Laois 0-17

On a windy, wet day in Thurles, Laois had the aid of the strong wind in the first half and raced in to a 0-9 to 0-2 lead at the end of the first quarter. Tipperary steadied the ship somewhat in the second quarter but still trailed at the interval by 0-14 to 0-6.
The second half was all one way traffic for a much changed Tipperary (13 half time changes) as they dominated from an early stage. Eight unanswered points saw Tipperary draw level by the 47th minutes before a good catch and pass by Conor Kenny helped set up John McGrath for the games only goal in the 51st minutes. Laois did recover to score three unanswered points midway through the second half but the last ten minutes saw Tipperary score at will to complete a 17 point victory, 1-31 to 0-17.

PJ Scully with 7 points was the top scorer for Laois while second half subs Liam and John McGrath accounted for 1-9 of Tipperary's 1-25 second half total.

Tipperary: Darren Gleeson; Joe O'Dwyer, Tossie Hamill, Michael Cahill; Willie Ryan, Barry Heffernan, Liam Ryan; Noel McGrath, Michael Breen; Dan McCormack (0-1), Patrick Maher, Sean Ryan; Kieran Morris (0-2 frees), Conor Kenny (0-1), John O'Dwyer (0-3 frees)
Subs: Darragh Mooney, Cathal Barrett, James Barry, Conor O'Brien, Brendan Maher (0-5, 0-4 frees), Joe Gallagher, Padraic Maher, Daire Quinn (0-1), Dylan Fitzelle (0-3), Andrew Coffey (0-3), Jason Forde (0-3), Sean Curran, Liam McGrath (0-6, 0-2 frees), John McGrath (1-3), Brian Hogan
