Tipperary manager Eamon O'Shea was happy that his players' hard work paid off against Clare in Ennis today but he was keen to stress that it's still early days in the hurling calender.
Speaking to TG4's GAA Beo following his side's 2-19 to 0-20 Division 1A victory over the Banner County, O'Shea remarked: "It was good and I'm delighted for them because they've been working really hard all the time.
"The league goes up and down, I wouldn't be thinking everything's fine just because you win one or your lose one.
"I think the nature of the league is that, as you saw with Dublin and Cork yesterday, it will fluctuate.
He added: "I'm just happy but again I'll say it's early March and the pitches don't run as quick.
"I know I said that when we lost but it's equally true when you win. When you win everything isn't fine and when you lose everything isn't bad.
"So I'd caution everybody to see things for what they are today and don't be thinking about the future."
