Tipp emerge with the victory but will have to improve for Cork date

Tipperary 1-15

Waterford 1-7

It was a comment delivered in earnest, rather than in jest, and it accurately reflected the general mood in Fraher Field after the Premier lads had secured so rare a confortable victory in the venue.
