Tipperary 2-18 Galway 0-20
2 goals just after half-time helped them to stave off a strong closing quarter by Galway in a robust league encounter.
With a gale driving towards the town end, Tipp hit 0-14 in the first half and looked to have settled the match when John O'Dwyer goaled seconds after the restart and goaled again in the 46th minute when Séamus Callanan used his size and guile to make the most of a low ball from O'Dwyer and finished deftly. Trailing 2-16 to 0-13 after a battling first half, Galway could have written off the afternoon but instead harnessed the wind and outscored Tipp by 0-8 to 0-1. On a day of outstanding defensive performances, David Collins and Iarla Tannian were key influences during that Galway revival, while Pádraic Maher became more composed as the home support became increasingly anxious.
From the beginning, it was clear that whatever else, Eamon O'Shea expected an entirely new collective attitude as Tipp attacked the Galway clearances during a sustained opening 10 minutes of pressure.
They opened up a 0-4 to 0-1 lead, the pick of the scores from Pádraic Maher, who showed for Kieran Bergin's sideline cut, sidestepped Tannion and fired accurately. A late chop on Denis Maher drew a vexed reaction from O'Shea, a rarity in league fare the foul was punished by Callanan's free. O'Shea gave the latest of the McGrath prodigies, John, his full debut and saw him deliver 2 late first-half points during one of the periodic scoring bursts which defined the first half.
During the lulls, the sharpshooters on both sides concocted choice scores for the small crowd. Tipp's 24th-minute score represented the best of them: Pádraic Maher wheeled back to tidy up a speculative Galway ball and lobbed a clearance to the willing Denis Maher. A crisp pass from Gearóid Ryan was slickly transferred at close range by Callanan and Jason Forde finished deftly. End-to-end, five clean passes, a score: in their groove, Tipp are pretty to watch.
Galway had enough chances to recover the deficit but rushed a few shots and a huge roar greeted Brendan Maher's point, which pushed Tipp four points clear going into injury time.
Galway weren't done: Andy Smyth shook off a thunderous and fair shoulder from Paul Curran to clip another fine point and then Joseph Cooney, whose move to full forward was key to their revival sent in a head-high, dangerous ball which Darren Gleeson had to collect on his goal line. Tipp has survived.
TIPP D Gleeson (0-1, free); C Barrett, P Curran, C O'Brien; M Breen, P Maher, R Maher (0-1); K Bergin (0-3), G Ryan (0-1); D Maher (0-1), J Forde (0-3), B Maher (0-1); J O'Dwyer (1-1), S Callanan (1-3, one free), J McGrath (0-2).
Subs J Woodlock for G Ryan (ht). C Kenny (0-1) for D Maher (42mins inj), N McGrath for J McGrath (54mins), J Meager for K Bergin 70min.

Hurling team of the week

1. Darren Gleeson (Tipperary) Pulled off a smart reflex save late on in Semple Stadium to deny Galway's Joseph Cooney.

2. Richie McCarthy (Limerick) withstood a spirited performance from Antrim before producing a strong finish in Ballycastle.

3. Christopher Joyce (Cork) kept Shane O'Donnell on a tight leash throughout the 70 minutes at Pairc Ui Rinn on Saturday evening.

4. Conor O'Brien (Tipp)Fully justified Eamon O'Shea's decision to include him at left corner-back with a polished performance.

5. Austin Gleeson (Waterford) dealt comfortably with what Laois had to throw at him as McGrath's charges secured their first win in 1B.

6. Padraic Maher (Tipp) Galway began to get a grip on proceedings around the middle of the field during the 2nd-half Maher stood firm in the heart of the home side's defence.

7. Peter Kelly (Dublin) Ger Cunningham rejigged the starting 15 and full-back Kelly is enjoying a new lease of life in the half-backs.

8. David Redmond (Wexford) Got through an enormous amount of work around the middle of the field roamed forward scored 4pts.

9. Aidan Walsh (Cork) After the disappointment against Kilkenny, Walsh bounced back with an impressive showing against Clare.

10. Danny Sutcliffe (Dublin) The late sending-off for a second yellow failed to take the gloss of a fine display and shot 4 points.

11. Pauric Mahony (Waterford) Helped himself to 1-14 (9 frees) against Laois, was no surprise to hear Derek McGrath sing his's praises.

12. Cian Lynch (Limerick) The youngster's appetite for work was a vital in Limerick's winning formula and he also chipped in with 3pts.

13. David Treacy (Dublin) Enjoyed an afternoon to remember when accumulating 11 points (including four frees and three 65s) against KK.

14. Alan Cadogan (Cork) Finished with just a point to his name but his direct running caused mayhem in the Banner County defence.

15. Patrick Horgan (Cork) The deadly accurate Horgan with 9 frees and 1 65 and also stroked over 4pts from play before his precautionary withdrawal due to a hamstring niggle.

Tipp back calls not to use hooter system.

Trials of the hooter system showed it would have caused massive reputational damage to the GAA according to TCC representative.
The timing mechanism was added to the Official Guide only last year to signal the end of halves in games - now a motion to delete the rule will come before the association's Annual Congress this weekend.
Concerns raised during the trials included the potential for teams to use substitutions to wind down the clock and scores made at the end of a game after or during the hooter sound.
After last nights monthly meeting of TCB Sean Nugent said there was almost unanimous agreement among the Central Council representatives from each county not to use the system.

Hurling Rankings

A memorable quote from 1997 sci-fi film Starship Troopers went: "I need a corporal. You're it, until you're dead or I find someone better." As such, these guys are still the commanders of hurling
The only title they don't currently hold is the Walsh Cup and that because they had to opt out.
Retirements, club commitments and injuries are hampering their progress but they still outscored Dublin 2-3 to 0-1 with 13 men in the league.
Started the All-Ireland final replay with a younger team than Tipp, so they're going nowhere

There's lots of backs and midfielders, but Eamon O'Shea needs to find one or two more dependable forward options because what was clear in the replay against Kilkenny last year was a lack of Plan B.
He would have toyed with the idea of putting Brendan Maher in the half-forward line then and is acting on it now, but needs to settle his captain in one position to get the best from him.
The limp display in Dublin and somewhat encouraging win over Galway tell us little new for now.
Perhaps league form is a deceptive indicator, and Dublin seem to have more of their star men available than anyone else, but you can't ignore their performances.
To raze Tipperary and Kilkenny (for the most part) in such emphatic fashion should serve to embarrass any pundit who ever called these players manufactured.
Unless by that they meant athletic, skilful players who have laid a platform to challenge for silverware under Ger Cunningham. Will upset some Cork and Limerick fans to see the Dubs higher on the list, perhaps rightly so.
