This is a blockbuster of a fixture. I’m actually covering this game myself this weekend and I can’t bloody wait! Tipperary will be out for revenge in this one after being bullied in the Munster final by Limerick last year. Their manager Liam Sheedy will be out to right those wrongs.
But on the other hand, look at what Limerick did to Clare last weekend! When they kicked it into another gear, they were just explosive. Don’t forget how important playing in the current weird conditions last week will be for Limerick heading into this one too, Tipperary are yet to experience the rigmarole that goes along with these games now. That’s massive, and Tipp are coming into this cold as well.
I just can’t look past The Treaty County winning here, and they remain my tip to win the Munster Championship. After watching them last weekend, I just see John Kiely’s men going from strength-to-strength.
I’m looking at Limerick to win this by 4-6 points, even if it is at the home of Tipperary hurling, Semple Stadium. This really is the game that could ignite this strangest of Championships. But, after what my eyes witnessed against Clare, I can’t look past Limerick to have a small bit to spare here.
You really couldn’t select anyone else but Séamus Callanan for this wager. After all, the Drom-Inch attacker netted eight goals in eight Championship games for The Premier County last season. Even if Callanan pick up a couple of goals though, Limerick showed last weekend – when they racked up a whopping 33 points – that it will take more than one or two goals to beat them.
