Tipperary u-21 footballers made it two wins from two in the Hastings Cup with a 3-12 to 2-6 win over Wicklow at Dr Morris Park on Saturday.
Following on their earlier win in Leitrim, it puts the side in confident mood against the stronger test this weekend when they host Meath.
A depleted Tipp side put in a fine display that the visitors couldn’t match and fully deserved the win.
The only disappointment for Tipp was picking up three black cards.
