Liam Sheedy's second reign as Tipperary boss began with a bang at Páirc Uí Chaoimh as they overcame Cork 2-28 to 1-24 in a superb showing.

It ensured both games from the opening round of the Munster championship went to the away side. Tipperary gave a complete performance which featured an awesome 2-24 from play.

The fact that they were able to rack up such a score is as impressive as it is damning. Speaking on RTE Sport, Jackie Tyrell was critical of Cork's defence, as was Anthony Daly.

Daly: They were destroyed. They were ripped apart.

Tyrell: It's their Achilles' heel. To concede 2-24, from play! They could have had more scores. This was Munster championship and for the last ten minutes it just petered out almost like a challenge match.


Goals from Seamus Callanan and John McGrath proved decisive and it could have been more had Anthony Nash not matched Jason Forde's penalty with a save.

At the other end, Cork's firepower performed. Seamus Harnedy slotted a superb goal into the far corner while Patrick Horgan finished with 0-14.


Yet the damage at the other end while have John Meyler fretting and with the All-Ireland champions next up, it is an issue that needs a quick solution. Speaking after the game, he stressed the need to move on.

"We have to reorganise now and have a chat. Disappointing performance, disappointing result. Look, we've Limerick next Sunday and that's one of the benefits of the Munster championship. Game is over, we move on to next week."
