Tipperary's Liam Kearns Slams 'Disgraceful' Scheduling Of Fixtures

Tipperary's Liam Kearns Slams 'Disgraceful' Scheduling Of Fixtures

A vocal critic of the recent changes to the the Gaelic football landscape, Tipperary's Liam Kearns has expressed his agitation once more in the wake of his side's comfortable Munster quarter-final win against Waterford.

With a one week turnaround before Tipperary's footballers take on Cork, Kearns has labelled the structure of this year's Munster championship a "disgrace."


Having seen his side achieve a comfortable 0-20 to 0-09 win against Waterford in Thurles, Kearns held very little back when discussing the short time they had to prepare for the next challenge:

It's wrong, really, really wrong. All we want is a level playing field, any time we go out and that's all we want; we did not get that.

Suggesting that his team should have at least a two week break between matches, the absence of their talismanic forward Conor Sweeney last night may not have caused Tipperary any undue stress, but, with only a week before they take on the very different challenge of Cork, Kearns will be forced to sweat on Sweeney's fitness:

If he had a fortnight Conor Sweeney would definitely be playing against Cork, but he has six days.

It will be very tight. We hope he'll make it.

Having overseen a positive change in Tipperary's footballing fortunes in recent years, Kearns retains serious concerns about a system that he believes will hamper their progress.
