Tipperary senior hurlers overcame old rivals Cork on Sunday to reach the Waterford Crystal Tournament final. They needed extra time at Templemore to get through on a 0-26 to 1-19 scoreline. It was the first game for Tipp since the withdrawal of Lar Corbett from the panel and there was another scare for the side when Patrick ‘Bonner’ Maher was injured during the game but the injury is not thought to be as serious as first expected.
Eoin Kelly came off the bench to score 0-4 from placed balls. Tipperary now meet Clare in the final.
