Westmeath - Hurlers 2017

Of all draws to get..its a nightmare one..Tipp will want a point to prove and dispell any notions of rumours/camp etc and wont be taking prisoners. Also the fact its played in MIghty semple stadium will be a bonus for them too. Having said that it will be interesting to see westmeath play in the wide open expances compared to mullingar, it actually could suit them, who knows. I dont think we see the best of westmeath ever in cusack park,. Even if ye had got kilkenny ye could have given.it a right go cause kilkenny are limited now, same can be said for limerick and dublin. Its just tge worst possible draw and I hope ye play with pride and gusto because there is a lot of potential there and try and not get a bad defeat or it will set the progress back a small bit.

Tipp aren't taking anything for granted anyway lads, they've refused Westmeath's request to play the tie in Cusack Park.

Good to see we tried to get Tipp up to Mullingar, would have had big interest.

Interesting to note the difference between Tipp and Kilkenny.The Cats were drawn at home in u21 but agreed to come to Mullingar
