Former Cork goalkeeper Donal Óg Cusack predicts Limerick to continue their impressive form when they meet Tipperary this weekend.

A place in the Munster SHC final will be at stake at Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday (throw-in 4.00pm) when the two heavyweights clash and, having notched 0-36 against Clare the last day, Cusack has tipped the Treaty men to come through based on “their overall game”.

“The champions of the last two years and what a prospect in store on Leeside. I’m covering this game in Páirc Uí Chaoimh and really looking forward to it. We are looking at two serious title contenders,” the three-time All-Ireland winner told RTÉ's Morning Ireland programme.

“How have Tipp managed during the shutdown? Who knows? We know how Limerick have fared out after their win over Clare, getting rid of any cobwebs during the first half against the Banner men. 

“Limerick don’t do goals like Tipp do and Liam Sheedy’s men will need goals from their attack to win this. The Treaty men appear most vulnerable in their full-back line, so that aspect of the game makes for intriguing viewing.

“Having said all that, I’m going for Limerick to march into a Munster based on their overall game.”
