The real winners of today's Munster Championship final in Killarney was neither Kerry or Tipperary, instead it was the bookies. The handicap going into the game was Kerry -10. Kerry's margin of victory: 10 points. Who bets on the handicap draw? Nobody.
Despite the win. Eamonn Fitzmaurice will have worries. Namely the concession of two goals, allowing Tipperary back into the game and a first half injury to Colm Cooper - who was playing in his 84th championship match.
20 minutes into the game, Cooper departed the Fitzgerald Stadium pitch holding his shoulder. He had been involved in a heavy collision with Ciaran McDonald shortly beforehand.
According to the Irish Examiner's Tony Leen, Cooper has sustained a collarbone injury which could keep him out of an August Bank Holiday weekend quarter-final.
