This game will be broadcast exclusively on GAA GO.
Munster's aristocrats meet in a highly-intriguing match in the Munster round-robin. Clare's defeat of Limerick and the big injuries that John Kiely's men have suffered suggests the 2023 hurling championship might not be a fait accompli. Both counties stand ready to benefit should Limerick wobble. Cork were full of industry and power in dismantling Davy's Wateford last Sunday. Tipp have the advantage of a break week and were very impressive in Liam Cahill's maiden Premier outing in the Championship, totting up a ridiculous 5-22 score. Should Tipp claim a second big scalp on the road, this Premier hype train would be fully up and running.
For this trip to Cork, Tipp have ditched the 'squad numbers' approach and reverted to the tradition positional jersey approach. Seamus Callanan has recovered from injury and is named to the bench. Captain Noel McGrath is named in the midfield. Conor Stakelum and Seán Ryan started after missing out on the starting team for Tipp's first Munster fixture against Clare.
Pat Ryan has named the same fifteen that easily handled Waterford last weekend.
