Old Failings Cost Clare As They Throw Away Another Match

Old Failings Cost Clare As They Throw Away Another Match
By Adrian Collins

Tipperary are through to the All-Ireland semi-finals after a three-point win over Clare in the new Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

A 0-28 to 3-16 scoreline did not tell the story of the match. Clare scored a goal with one of the last plays of the game, but the result will be seen as the one the ran away for the 2013 champions.

Clare hit 18 wides in the match, three more than the 15 in the Munster final, when they lost to Cork by five points.

After the match, RTÉ commentator Michael Duignan said the wides "cost them the game in the end".

For Clare, the wides was the team's biggest issue, but they also had issues getting the sliotar to their own players from puck-outs.

A bitter pill to swallow.
